Happy Wingsday! Can you believe today marks my 30th week of featuring wings? The time has flown by and I have enjoyed every place I have gone to over the last seven months. As they say, all good things must come to an end, and my search for the best wings in Tampa will be wrapping up as I select and announce my winner on Super Bowl Sunday. This has been such a fun journey and I still have so many places to try, so I have decided to make this a ongoing event and will start over again on February 6th! This year’s winner will take on next year’s winner is a wing showdown.
Today’s feature is not only delicious, it is a healthier version of chicken wings with a Caribbean twist. Ladies and gentlemen, may I present to you, Smitty’s Caribbean Style Wings from Westchase gem, Catch Twenty-Three!
Marinated in soy, honey, brown sugar, cider vinegar and then finished off with hot sauce, these tasty wings are grilled rather than fried. I discovered them a few weeks back while dining at Catch Twenty-Three with my family. I must say, the name caught my eye as I have a dear friend who is known as Smitty. As soon as I saw them, I knew I had to try them and I am so glad I did. The flavors are beautifully blended for a unique taste that is simply tantalizing. While enjoying these wings, I could not help but think of a tropical paradise and the flavors truly capture the essence of island life. Perfect for Florida, these wings are a healthy alternative and go well with a glass of wine, a cold beer or even a tropical cocktail.
My six-year old son who tends to be picky about wing sauces LOVED them! He keeps asking when we can go back for the “yummy wings” at the “cool fish place.” We live in South Tampa, but I have grown quite fond of Westchase, especially because of Catch Twenty-Three. Each visit there has been stellar and I am always discovering new favorites on their menu.
If you are in the neighborhood, be sure and stop by Catch Twenty-Three. With weekly specials and a fabulous wine list, it id s great spot to catch a game or dine with friends. Be sure to follow them on Facebook for daily specials. You can find their page by clicking here.
Until next time, keep winging it!
