These Grilled Sriracha Honey Wings were born out of one of those evenings where I
1. didn’t plan dinner in advance
2.. was feeling lazy
This happens more than you would think at la casa de Rem-Pard.
Sunday morning Peter and I went straight to business and hopped on to the motorcycle to Flower Market Road. This part of Hong Kong is exactly as it sounds–flowers, plants, seeds, and everything you’d need to grow a garden. We picked up a few things and ordered a few more to be delivered later.

Afterwards we made our way home to unpack and wait for a few precious deliveries– our new grill, outdoor fan, and gas tank. When they arrived Peter carried everything up to the 8th floor (that’s the 9th floor for those of you in the US) and then worked under the Hong Kong summer sun to set it all up while I started thinking about how to put our new grill to use.
Sidebar: I’ve generally found that in Hong Kong when I refer to our “grill” as a grill, people are a bit confused. The more common term to use is a barbecue/BBQ. But I’m from Texas– Let me assure you, not everything you put on that grill is BBQ 😉
Having already gone up and down the 120+ steps to our apartment a few times already, the last thing I wanted to do was make another trip just to go to the grocery store to feed us. So I looked at the ingredients we already had and whisked together this delicious wing sauce.
Sriracha for spice, honey for sweetness (and to give your wings some crisp on the grill), and orange juice for extra tang
It was so ridiculously easy and you could easily change up the recipe a bit depending on what you find in your pantry– sub lemon juice for the orange juice, use brown sugar instead of honey
