Papi’ Seafood & Oyster Bar Vancouver | English Bay

Papi’ Seafood & Oyster Bar Vancouver | English Bay

Casual seafood-focused favourites with bold, delicious flavours. Papi’s Seafood and Oyster Bar replaced Raincity Grill (and formerly Beach Bay Cafe) at Denman Street.

The 2200 sqft space is refreshing, bright and airy. A good match for its playful seafood fare.

Papis Seafood Oyster Bar Vancouver Nomss.com

To start our 5 Year Anniversary lunch date, we had some fresh oysters: Kusshi (Deep Bay, Vancouver Island), Lucky Lime (New London Bay, PEI), and Raspberry Point (New London Bay, PEI). I liked the meaty and clean flavours from the East Coast!

Papis Seafood Oyster Bar Vancouver Nomss.com

Octopus Popcorn 17: Smokey and tender grilled octopus with red pepper and smoked paprika popcorn.

Papis Seafood Oyster Bar Vancouver Nomss.com

Ahi Tuna Ceviche 18: Fresh albacore tuna, cubed and marinated in citrus, corn and pickled shallots makes for a refreshing appetizer that you simply can not get enough of! I wonder if Alessandro would have laughed at (or with me) if I had licked my plate!

Burrata Salad 18: Never would I not order Burrata if it was on the menu. Fresh Burrata with heirloom tomato and basil puree.

Off The Menu: Season’s finest Chantrelle mushroom, Brussel sprouts, heirloom tomatoes with Burrata. The warmth from the mushrooms softens the Burrata making it even more desirable! You have to try this if you are a Burrata lover!

Lobster Brioche 26: Big chunks of meaty lobster with coleslaw, mayo and a housemade light and slightly puffy egg and butter toast. The only thing that could have possibly made this piece better? Fingerling limes and tobiko sprinkled on top! Pops of citrus burst would have completed it!

Off The Menu: Lobster Spaghetti instead of Clam Spaghetti because we are EXTRA! Dressed in white wine and herbs.

Remember to ask Alessandro to suggest wine pairings! And say hi to Chef Jefferson Alvarez (he will be there until the end of September!)

Vietnamese Spicy Caramel Turkey Wing Recipe

Vietnamese Spicy Caramel Turkey Wing Recipe

Bake ahead and enjoy all the Autumn / Back to School activities with this spicy and tangy recipe!

This Vietnamese Spicy Caramel Turkey Wing recipe is easy, big on flavour, yet quick to make! This simple oven turkey wing recipe is rich and tangy. Nomss.com #vietneameserecipe #turkeyrecipes #spicywings #wingrecipe #mealprep #kidsmeals

This post is sponsored by the Turkey Farmers of Canada. All views and opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that keep Nomss in the kitchen!

Autumn in Vancouver is very distinct. The weather in September Labour Day gets crisper, the rain starts rolling in and traffic is insane with everyone is in a mad rush to get to back to school or work. Secretly, I’m using Em as an excuse to shop for school supplies. Who says a 2-year old doesn’t need double-tipped gradient pens?!

To keep up with all the kid’s activities, there’s no denying meal-planning and versatility is a must! This recipe holds up even a few days later and everyone doesn’t even seem to mind to eat it cold (if we get too lazy to reheat it).

I am working Turkey Farmers of Canada again to bring you another quick and delicious recipe using Canadian Turkey like this and this.

This Vietnamese Spicy Camarel Turkey Wing Recipe is easy, big on flavour, yet quick to make! This simple oven turkey wing recipe is rich and tangy. The spiciness can be adjusted to your heat preference or omitted if you are feeding little ones. For us, I usually make two batches. One spicy and one non-spicy.

Turkey is a tasty, versatile and very nutritious lean protein that easily adapts to different flavours. It can be used for milder dishes like turkey pho or turkey congee or bolder, brighter, flavours like this recipe.

I love how it is a concentrated source of protein to help build strong, healthy muscles and packed with Iron, Zinc, Sodium, Vitamin B12, Niacin, Selenium, Vitamin D, Potassium and Magnesium, Phosphorus and Tryptophan.

Marinating Your Turkey Wings

Poke a few holes in your turkey wings to help the marinade infuse deeper into the big giant wings. I usually like to marinate overnight in a reusable food storage bag. If you are in a pinch for time, even 20 mins help.

These baked spicy caramel wings are juicy, moist and tender.

Try making this recipe with turkey thighs. Grill the cutlets to add to your rice and top it off with a fried egg! Remember to pound the turkey into thin pieces like a cutlet.

Description

This Vietnamese Spicy Camarel Turkey Wing recipe is easy, big on flavour, yet quick to make! This simple oven turkey wing recipe is rich and tangy. 


Scale

Ingredients

  • 6 turkey wings (tips removed, most are sold this way)
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar (or 1/4 cup honey)
  • 1 tbsp paprika powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 bird’s eye chili (thinly diced, deseeded if you prefer less heat)

 

 


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F for 35-40 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F. 
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper
  3. Place the turkey wings in a large bowl and pour the lime juice, brown sugar, parika powder, salt and black pepper, olive oil, fish sauce, garlic powder and bird’s eye chili.
  4. Toss until each piece is evenly coated. 
  5. Place the turkey wings on the baking sheet in a single layer.
  6. Bake the turkey wings for 35-40 minutes, flipping over halfway. 
  7. Rotate the turkey wings one last time and bake for another 5 minutes until golden brown and crispy.
  8. Garnish with a few thinly sliced bird’s eye chili, cilantro.
  9. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Notes

  • Rotating and flipping helps the turkey wings burning on one side.
  • Use a heavy duty commercial baking sheet that won’t warp in the oven. This is the baking sheet and cooling rack I use. 
  • Try making this recipe with turkey thighs. Grill the cutlets to add to your rice and top it off with a fried egg! Remember to pound the turkey into thin cutlets.
