Husband is out shoving over 20 inches of snow. I’m sure once he’s done, he’s worked up quite an appetite. It’s a good thing I will have freshly fried fish sauce wings ready.
There are many variations of “fish sauce wings,” but our family style takes a different approach and it’s always a huge favorite at family gatherings.
I learned this recipe from my sister in law. Unlike other fish sauce wings recipes that require you to marinate before frying, this one does not require any marinate time; the wings are first deep fried and rolled over a layer of fish sauce. It is best to use small size party wings, if possible, as they are easier to work with and provides a good portion.
Another key ingredient is “Korean beef powder.” The saltiness of the beef powder will contrast the hint of honey to surprisingly add a kick to the flavorful fish sauce, yielding an amazing salty and sweet blend.
These spicy, sticky and flavorful fish sauce wings will also be a great addition to your Super Bowl party. Just make sure you provide enough napkins for your guests. This is a dish that will make you forget your table manners, and summon your inner Viking appetite; yes, it’s that good!

- 4 tablespoon Korean beef broth powder (can be found at international grocery store)
- 5 tablespoon fish sauce

- In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Stir vigorously until it can form little thicken liquid.
- In a saucepan, heat enough oil and deep fried the wings until golden brown.
- Carefully transfer the wings and roll over the sauce and set aside. When all wings are finished, you should have a little bit of left over sauce.
