My friend Peter is a serious consumer of Sriracha. He is making three different kinds of wings for his Super Bowl party this year, and among them are these Sriracha wings.
3 pounds chicken wings
2 tablespoons canola oil, plus more for frying
4 cloves garlic, minced
Fresh ginger piece, the size of a woman's thumb, minced
Half a pickled jalapeno, minced
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons sesame seeds
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup Sriracha
Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
Put enough canola oil in a Dutch oven to come halfway up the pot. Heat to 400 degrees. Fry wings in batches. Don't overcrowd the pan. It will take about 3 batches for 3 pounds of wings.
While wings are frying, preheat oven to 200 degrees. Place fried wings on a rack on a cookie sheet and keep in warm oven until all wings are fried.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the rest of the ingredients. Then toss in the fried wings and serve immediately.
