Recipe: Kind-of Korean Chicken Wings

I love chicken wings. Any sort of herby, citrusy or spicy marinade followed by a blast in the oven or BBQ and I’m happy. However, this particular marinade was so awesome I thought I’d share. It’s a magic combination of salty umami soybean, zingy ginger and spicy chilli paste.

Ingredients for the marinade:
2 tablespoons Korean soy bean paste (doengjang)
1 tablespoon Korean chilli paste (gochujang) or more for extra heat
1 tablespoon grated or really finely chopped onion
1/2 tablespoon grated ginger
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Other ingredients:
Chicken Wings!

This is really easy if you have the Korean paste in your cupboard. Just mix together all the marinade ingredients. Rub the marinade all over some chicken wings, if you have time/can wait you can leave the wings to marinate for a couple of hours before cooking. Cook in the oven at about 180 degrees Celsius until they are cooked through and starting to brown.

Serve with beer.
