For the Jerk Spice Wings

1 pound chicken wings, trimmed, wing tips removed
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 teaspoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons dried thyme
1 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
Peanut oil, for deep-frying

For the Remoulade

1 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard
1 tablespoon sriracha hot sauce
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 clove garlic, grated
Zest of 1 lemon
Juice of 1/2 lemon

For the wings, preheat the oven to 230°C.

Toss the chicken wings with some salt and pepper and then place the wings on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Roast to an internal temperature of 165 degrees F, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool. (At this point, the wings can be refrigerated for up to 24 hours.)

In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, thyme, allspice, onion powder, turmeric, cayenne and 2 teaspoons salt. Set aside. Heat 2 inches of peanut oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 180°C.

In batches, fry the chicken wings until just crispy, 2 minutes. Remove to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain. While the wings are still hot, add them to a large bowl and sprinkle with a generous amount of the jerk spice mixture. Toss until well coated.

For the remoulade: In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, mustard, sriracha, Worcestershire, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of the jerk spice mixture. Serve the wings with the remoulade on the side.
