Ingredients

Wing Marinade:
Banana-Garlic Sauce:
Tropical Creme Dipping Sauce:
Sweet Plantains:

Directions

For the marinade: Combine the orange juice, soy sauce, ginger, sugar, jalapenos, garlic, cinnamon and star anise. Pour the marinade over the wings and marinate in the refrigerator overnight.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Remove the wings from marinade and place on a baking sheet. Roast for 30 minutes.

For the banana-garlic sauce: In a large pot set over low heat, melt the butter and toast the garlic until dark golden brown, 15 minutes. Add the fish sauce, orange juice, maple syrup, chili sauce, banana liqueur, bananas, orange juice and zest. Bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat to a simmer for 20 minutes. Puree the sauce in a blender, and then set aside.

For the dipping sauce: Place the pineapple juice and sugar in a small saucepot set over medium heat and cook to reduce by one-third (6 ounces), about 1 hour. It should be slightly caramelized. Chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

Add the reduced juice mixture to the sour cream and mix.

For the plantains: Heat the oil in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan set over medium heat until a deep-frying thermometer inserted in the oil reaches 350 degrees F. Carefully peel the plantains, taking care to avoid getting the peels under your fingernails. Then cut the plantains into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Fry the plantain slices for 3 minutes.

Preheat the grill to high heat.

Grill the wings until golden brown. Meanwhile, reheat the banana-garlic sauce in a stockpot. Add the grilled wings and fried plantains to the sauce and toss until everything is glazed and very hot. Serve the wings and plantains on a platter with the dipping sauce in a bowl on the side.

When blending hot liquid, first let it cool for five minutes or so, then transfer it to a blender, filling only halfway. Put the lid on, leaving one corner open. Cover the lid with a kitchen towel to catch splatters, and pulse until smooth.
