Fish Sauce Wings

Prep: 1 hour

Cook: 5-10 minutes

Fish Sauce wings have been a revelation for us- try these salty and fragrant wings for yourself!

  • 6 chicken wings
  • 4 tablespoons of fish sauce
  • ½ teaspoon of ground cumin
  • Fried shallots to garnish
  • Fresh coriander to garnish
  • Sliced red chilli, optional to garnish
  • Vegetable oil for deep frying

The Method

  1. Marinade the chicken wings with the fish sauce and ground cumin. Leave in the fridge to marinate for at least 1 hour.

  2. Heat the oil in a deep fat fryer or in a deep saucepan. You can test oil with the end of a wooden chopstick; if it sizzles it’s hot enough for frying.

  3. Fry the chicken wings until golden brown and cooked through, approx 5 minutes. Depending on the size of your fryer or saucepan, this will likely require frying in 2-3 batches for a golden crispy skin.

  4. Drain on kitchen paper then serve on a plate and garnish with fried shallots, fresh coriander and chilli if desired.
