Ike's Vietnamese Fish Sauce Wings
   

Last night we had a party for Myron's alumni from Bishop England High School. One of the appetizers was Ike's Vietnamese Vietnamese Fish Sauce Wings, which is a recipe from Food & Wine Cocktails 2008. I don't know who Ike is but these are some fantastic wings. They are crunchy, salty, sweet, and the fresh herbs and fried garlic make them absolutely delicious.

In Charleston you can buy Vietnamese fish sauce at most Asian markets. I like the Three Crab brand, and get it at H&L Market.

Chicken wings

  • 3lb chicken wings, split at the drumette and tips trimmed off

Marinade

  • 1/2 C fish sauce
  • 1/2 C granulated sugar
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic

Frying

  • 4C to 6C vegetable oil, approximately
  • 1C cornstarch
Garnish

  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 T vegetable oil
  • 1 T chopped cilantro
  • 1 T chopped mint
Preparation
  1. Whisk all the marinade ingredients together in a bowl until the sugar dissolves.
  2. Put the prepared chicken wings into a 1 gallon zip-top bag.
  3. Pour the marinade over the wings and refrigerate for at least three hours, turning occasionally. They can be left overnight, just be sure to put the bag into a bowl or baking dish in case it leaks.
  4. Remove the wings from the refrigerator 30 minutes before you plan to start cooking them.
  5. Drain the marinade from the wings and reserve the marinade. It will be reduced to make the sauce.
  6. Place the wings on a layer of paper towels to dry.
  7. Pour oil into a large pot to a depth of approximately two inches and bring to 350F (177C) over medium-high heat.
  8. While waiting for the oil to heat, put the marinade in a pot and bring to a simmer over moderately high heat. Skim off the protein raft that forms on the top. Reduce to a syrup consistency, about 5 to 10 minutes.
  9. Pat the wings dry with paper towels and dredge in cornstarch. Making sure they are covered thoroughly but shake off any excess cornstarch. Work in batches of four to six pieces, if you dredge too many and they sit for too long the cornstarch will get gummy and they won't be crispy.
  10. Fry the wings in batches of four to six pieces until crispy and chicken is done, about 8 to 10 minutes. Monitor the temperature of the oil  because it will drop when you add the wings. You can turn up the heat to help the oil return to temperature more quickly, just keep an eye on it. You don't want it to go above 360F (182C).
  11. Remove the wings from the oil onto a cooling rack or a platter lined with paper towels.
  12. When finished frying the wings, heat 2T vegetable oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat.
  13. Add the minced garlic and fry, stirring frequently, until the garlic is golden brown. Remove the garlic from the pan and allow the garlic to cool.
  14. When the wings have cooled enough to handle, put them in a bowl and drizzle with half the syrup. Toss to coat, then cover with remainder of syrup and toss again.
  15. Transfer wings to serving bowl or platter and top with fried garlic, chopped cilantro an chopped mint.
I planned to take a picture but by the time I made it to the table they were gone!

The following will only be news to anyone who isn't my Facebook friend. On a Friday in June 2012 I was fired by courier. It boiled down to a pissing contest with a newly hired VP. He told me to pull a network cable between two buildings during a thunderstorm. I refused, citing the absurdity of being 30 feet off the ground in a metal scissor lift during a lightning storm, and offered to do it the following day. His reply: "Put on your man pants and do it." I pointed out my lack of such a thin [read] Keywords: facebook network

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie
Tue, Apr 15th 2014 12:00p   Charles Robinson
For my final in my Introduction To Baking class we had to make strawberry rhubarb pie. Here is the recipe we used. Note that this makes one 5" mini-pie tin. Double the pie dough and filling recipe for a regular 10" pie, and increase the streusel topping by a third. Also note that the filling has two separate water measurements, and they are used separately. Don't do as someone in class did and guesstimate how much 2 oz is and mess up your filling. Pie dough 2.65 oz all purpose flour, plus [read] Keywords:

Charleston Restaurant Week - September 2012 Winners

Charleston Restaurant Week just wrapped up twelve crazy nights from September 5th through 16th. We had plans to be out of town for the closing weekend so we went out nine nights in a row, breaking our long-standing trend of going out every night. While it's not a competition there are clearly some winners and some losers. The competition was fierce and this time Circa 1886 and Tristan tied for our favorites. Honorable mentions go to Husk and Il Cortile del Rey, which were both good but not at [read] Keywords: blogger pearl

A while back I got an e-mail from Adam Osborne asking me to delete this blog post. [Note that the Adam I reference there is not Adam Osborne.] His primary bone of contention was that when people search for Defrag.NSF, a product he created and sells, my post is the third listed in Google. I'm sympathetic to his plight, but frankly that's not my problem. Adam went on to say my post referenced DominoDefrag, and he objected to that because: History shows that DominoDefrag has systematically imple [read] Keywords: blogger google openntf

We hired a new PC Tech and today he was fixing one of his mistakes. He sent a laptop to a user after having Ghosted it but without running Sysprep on the computer before he created the image. It caused all sorts of annoyances. In the process of fixing this mistake he made another. Instead of deleting the computer account from Active Directory he deleted the user's account. He didn't even think it odd or say anything when it prompted him to delete the user's mail. It took a while but I finally [read] Keywords: blogger exchange exchange laptop server smtp

It's a new year so it's time for some resolutions. I resolve to make commitments, not resolutions.That was easy. The difference between a commitment and a resolution is the former is a plan, the latter a promise. Last year I picked three words as promises and I didn't keep any of them. This year I'm turning those three into commitments. Do - This has started already. I have a plan for getting my environment to be one that energizes rather than drains me. It includes a lot of change and dip [read] Keywords: blogger

Even though the temperature is still in the 90's and the humidity envelopes me like a hot wet blanket, September means cool weather is around the corner. While working as a fishmonger in college I learned that most salmon spawn in the Fall. What better way to combine the promise of Fall with the reality of the heat and make a delicious cold smoked salmon spread?
