Ponzu Lime Mojo Wings

One more for the wing collection and then I'm going to {try} to take off from blogging to get ready for and enjoy the Super Bowl! {okay, I might try to squeeze in just one more recipe...}  If you're still on the hunt for some Super Bowl party food ideas, you can pick some great menu ideas right here. They are all mine, all tried and true, and all right here on this site. Check 'em out!

I recently had the opportunity to try Kikkoman's new Ponzu Lime Seasoned Dressing and Sauce. It's a new soy sauce with a twist - an extra burst of citrus and umami. We all know about the four basic tastes - sweet, sour, salty and bitter.

Umami is a reference to the fifth taste - a sort of meaty savoriness. The Kikkoman Ponzu Lime Seasoned Dressing and Sauce combines traditional soy sauce with lime, vinegar and seasonings, is lower in sodium than regular soy sauce, and has no fat and no MSG. It can be used as a dipping sauce for sashimi, drizzled on grilled foods as a finishing sauce, as a condiment, or anywhere you'd use regular soy sauce.

The Kikkoman website had a few suggested recipes, but I wanted to try to do something a little different and since it was almost Super Bowl Sunday, wings popped into my mind.  Wings are a favorite football appetizer for me so I'm always up for any new wing recipe but had to get creative to utilize this new lime infused soy-based sauce. The first thing that came to my mind was to do a mojo inspired wing and this is the recipe that resulted.

I am happy to say that I was thrilled with this wing recipe. It has a wonderful spicy, sweet, savory, citrus tang to it and the sauce reduction is just incredible, so be sure to reserve about a cup of the marinade before you place the chicken in it to reduce on the stovetop and use as a sauce.

I highly recommend using Reynolds Wrap Non-Stick Aluminum Foil when preparing wings in the oven.

If you make this or any of my recipes, I'd love to see your results! Just snap a photo and hashtag it #DeepSouthDish on social media or tag me @deepsouthdish on Instagram!
