How to do it

1.    To debone chicken wings, start from the shoulder side. Being careful not to break the skin, remove the two bone sections, turning meat and skin inside out as you move forward. When you reach the second joint, just before the wing tip, cut the bone and cartilage, and leave the wing tip as is. Set aside bones for stock, and turn wings right-side-out again.

2.    For the stuffing, sear the cubed vegetables in 5ml (1 tsp) of olive oil. Set aside to cool. Blitz the prawns in a blender with cream, salt and pepper. Add vegetables and season with a splash of anisette.

3.    For the sauce, place the chicken bones in a medium saucepan and cook over medium heat until lightly browned. Add vegetable off-cuts, prawn shells and heads, and the onion. Add water, a pinch of salt, pepper and the bay leaf. Add the tomato paste and garlic clove, and simmer for 1 hour.

4.    For the tomato compote, blanch the tomatoes (see cook’s tip) in boiling water, remove the skins and the seeds, and chop into small cubes. Sear the shallot and garlic in the olive oil. Add the chopped tomatoes, simmer for 10 seconds, making sure the tomato flesh stays firm and does not overcook. Season to taste.\

5.    To stuff the chicken wings, place the prawn filling in a piping bag with a hole nozzle attached. Pipe the filling into the chicken wings – remember that the filling will expand during cooking, so don’t overfill. Close the wings at the open shoulder end with a toothpick. Place the wings in a pan with butter, and cook on medium heat until they are lightly browned, taking care to spoon the butter over them as they cook, about 10 minutes.

6.    Shortly before serving, strain the sauce through a fine sieve. If you prefer, you can reduce the sauce further, and finish it off with a splash of cream.

7.    For the herb oil, finely blend the parsley and olive oil together.

8.    To plate, place the tomato compote in the centre of a large flat plate. Using a sharp knife, cut the chicken wings twice, diagonally, and place on the tomato compote. Drizzle sauce around the edges of the tomato compote and chicken wing, keeping the crisp skin of the wing sauce-free. Garnish with basil or, if you live near a lagoon, you can find samphire (Salicornia). Wash the samphire – if you want to reduce the salt content, you can soak it in plain cold water for a few hours before serving. Place either the basil or samphire on top of the wings and scatter with sliced Rosa or cherry tomatoes. Drizzle with the herb oil and serve.

Cook’s tip

To blanch tomatoes, cut a small cross in the tomato skin before plunging into boiling water for 7 seconds. Remove with a sieve or spoon and immediately plunge into a bowl of ice water.
