I suspect that this recipe is not standard, but rather one of dozens that fit the definition. Like so many foods, often the recipe is a family one, and varies accordingly.
However, this was perfect in my book. Spicy, a bit hot, but not overwhelming.
Perfect snack food.
- 2lbs wings, (about 12-14), cut up if you prefer or left whole.
- 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 c lime juice (about 2 whole limes)
- 1/4 c fish sauce
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 3 tbsp brown sugar
- 2 tbsp canola oil (or other)
- 2 stalks of lemongrass, diced, or 1 tbsp minced.
- 1-2 habeneros or birds-eye chile
- Mix all the ingredients together and place wings in it. Marinate for several hours, preferably overnight.
- Place wings on a grill and cook slowly.
- Take the marinade and pour into a saucepan and simmer for ten minutes.
- Use the marinade as a periodic baste as you grill the wings until they are very crispy and well charred.
NOTES: Getting the wings nicely charred is the goal here.
