These wings are inspired by my visit to Pok Pok in Portland, OR

I have not written a lab post in a while, because I have been concentrating on learning the craft of photography. However, I had to share a recent discovery of mine, fish sauce wings. These sticky, sweet, spicy and pungent wings are like gifts from heaven. I have not perfected them yet, but the sauce for the wings is pretty close. This version is great for those who are new to the taste and smell of fish sauce. Experts can add 4 or more teaspoons if they want.

The sauce:

  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 2 teaspoons chili-garlic sauce
  • 2 teaspoons water

Add ingredients into medium sauce pan and slowly reduce over low heat. Stir often for about 7-10 minutes. Drizzle over freshly fried chicken wings and serve with extra sauce for dipping.

    this looks amazing!!! my favourite dish as an apetiser. the other way i do it is to bake them marinated in oyster sauce, honey and a dash of corn flour.

  2. These look great! I grew up with fish sauce so I can imagine how these taste. There’s not much better than chicken wings that look this good!

    Love chicken wings. Love chicken in honey. Love fish sauce. In short , love this!

  4. Oh yeah! This is the ticket. The first time we used fish sauce a couple of years ago, we bought one that was horrific. After a while, we figured out which brands were good to use. No doubt, you probably have your own favorite that you use all the time.
