Peter Ogburn's Sriracha Wings

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.
