Directions

In a large bowl toss the wings with 5 tablespoons of the Essence. Place in a large plastic freezer bag.

Add the buttermilk and hot sauce and seal, forcing out as much air out as possible and turning to coat evenly. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Fill a large pot halfway with peanut oil, and heat to 360 degrees F. In a clean large freezer bag, combine the flour, the remaining 3 tablespoons Essence, and salt. Remove the turkey wings from the buttermilk, and transfer 2 at a time to the bag with the seasoned flour. Shake to coat and remove, shaking to remove any excess flour.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place coated wings on a large wire rack set over a sheet tray and let rest, un-refrigerated, for 20 minutes. Add to the hot oil and fry until golden brown, 5 to 6 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels and season with Essence. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, or until cooked through.

Serve hot or at room temperature with Emeril's Kicked Up Horseradish Coleslaw.
