You will have seen the looks of some recipes recently that use a sure sort of Korean crimson pepper flake referred to as gochugaru. I really like the nice and cozy spice of those little peppers and have loved experimenting with them. I promised some Korean recipes this yr, so these Korean rooster wings with gochujang sauce are the most recent. 

What Are Korean Rooster Wings?

Korean rooster wings are just like Buffalo rooster wings in that they’re not a breaded wing. They’re a baked rooster wing coated in a scrumptious sauce. Though you actually may fry them should you needed to.

In contrast to Buffalo wings although, the sauce isn’t overly spicy. It’s candy, tangy, and just a bit spicy. I make it by simmering gochujang paste, with coconut aminos (or soy sauce), maple syrup and honey, and a little bit sesame oil and garlic powder. So long as I’ve gochujang paste all able to go, it solely takes me a few minutes to throw the sauce collectively.

Even when I don’t have the paste available, it’s a extremely fast recipe to throw collectively as effectively. It’s a easy recipe of white miso, spices, honey, and gochugaru (Korean chili pepper flakes). I exploit the gochujang paste to make a flavored mayo and this rooster wing sauce.

Korean rooster wings are normally served with pickled greens. I really like radishes, so I’ve bought a recipe for pickled radishes with gochugaru pepper coming quickly.

Cooking Choices for Wings

I’ve cooked these tasty wings a few alternative ways. First, I attempted baking them within the oven till they have been cooked and crispy. I tossed them with the sauce and returned them to the oven till the sauce was caramelized.

Extra just lately, I made a decision to attempt utilizing an air fryer. I’d learn lots about them and determined I needed to present one a attempt. I wasn’t a lot drawn by the well being claims as by the pace and ease of use. My household likes fried meals like parsnip frieshomemade fish sticks, and cheese sticks. I’ve no downside making them often since I exploit wholesome fat to fry in, however it’s a little time-consuming and messy.

I made a decision to attempt air frying to get the identical crispy texture as fried meals. Since we don’t use a microwave and I don’t all the time love turning on the oven in scorching summer season months, I figured it may be attention-grabbing to attempt one thing new and clear up a number of points directly. 

This is the air fryer I ended up selecting. I like that it’s a bigger measurement for my larger-sized household and I actually admire that it’s all chrome steel. It’s pretty quiet, mild sufficient to maneuver simply, and has a pleasant window within the entrance so I can see the meals cooking. 

And surprising bonus perk: it’s simple sufficient for my older youngsters to make use of, so that they’re all the time experimenting and heating up leftovers for me!
