East Asian Style Wings

Sweet and spicy, this Asian-inspired hot wing recipe would make a fantastic addition to any party snack spread. — Will Budiaman

Notes

*Note: If you don’t have a deep fryer, as an alternative, fill a deep pot about 1/3 full with oil and place over medium heat until a frying thermometer reads 350 degrees.

Ingredients

  • 3  tablespoons  sweet and spicy hot sauce, preferably Tabasco brand
  • clove garlic, grated finely
  • 1  tablespoon  soy sauce
  • 1  tablespoon  honey
  • 1  tablespoon  vinegar
  • Vegetable oil or canola oil, for frying
  • 24  chicken wings, split, trimmed of excess fat and skin, wing tips removed
  • 1/4  cup  all-purpose flour (preferably Wondra) or rice flour

Directions

Combine the hot sauce, garlic, soy sauce, honey, and vinegar in a large bowl and mix.

Preheat the vegetable oil in a deep fryer to 350 degrees.*

Toss the wings in a bowl with the flour. Fry the wings for 10 minutes or until golden and crispy. Remove from the fryer, drain, and transfer to a bowl. Toss the wings with desired amount of sauce.

Asian Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Asian Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chili peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
