    • 1 tsp ground Jamaican allspice (or 12 berries, crushed and ground with a pestle and mortar)
    • 1 tbs finely grated fresh root ginger
    • 1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
    • 1 mild green chilli or ½ small red chilli, finely chopped, or 1 tsp chilli paste
    • 1 tbs fresh thyme leaves or 2 teaspoons dried thyme
    • 1 tbs soy sauce

    • Rub the marinade over the chicken wings, cover and leave in a cool place for 2 hours, or overnight is fine.

    • Heat a griddle pan, or set the grill to medium with the rack about 15cm (6in) from heat.

    • Thread the wings on to long skewers and griddle or grill for 10-12 mins until browned. Alternatively, fry the wings in a little oil until browned, then roast at Gas Mark 6 or 200°C for 10-15 mins.

    • Tip any remaining marinade into a small pan with the honey, and heat through. Brush the hot chicken wings with this glaze. Serve with salsa or a dip, rice, salad and lime wedges.
