“Japanese style chicken wings” is a must-try dish if you looking for something different flavor.

There are two kinds of styles for Japanese chicken wings, one is simply “the salt and spicy black pepper” seasoning, another is the “Nagoya style”, which is coated with sweet soy sauce and sesame seeds.

The tip is “double-fry” to make a crisp outside of wings.

Today, I am going to tell you Nagoya style Chicken wings here!

Make Sause

  1. Make a sauce. Take out a saucepan, add all ingredients for sauce except for sesame seeds.
  2. Heat the sauce and turn off the stove immediately when sugar begins to melt. Do not heat it for a long time.

Deep Fry Wings

  1. Start heating oil in a fryer or pan to 320 F.
  2. Meanwhile, cover chicken wings with flour and potato (corn) starch until they are evenly coated.
  3. When the oil is ready, shake off the excess of flour, and deep fry chicken wings for 4-5 min each side. Take them out from the pan. (the color is still white or light brown )
  4. When all the wings will be cooked, reheat the oil to 350F, double-fry wings until they begin to turn brown for about 3 min.

*I use a “plastic bag” for coat chicken wings with flour to reduce cleaning.

Coat Wings With Sauce

  1. Get back to the sauce. Reheat the sauce carefully not to be burned. If needed reduce it down to 50-60 % of the original amount. (be aware to get too thick)
  2. Use the same pan or transfer another bowl to coat wings with the sauce.
  3. Toss sesame seeds to complete.

What is Nanami Togarashi?

“Nanami Togarashi” aka “Shichimi Togarashi”(七味とうがらし)is one of the popular condiment in Japan.

Literary, Nanami, or Shichimi means seven kinds of flavors, and Togarashi means chili pepper.

In Japan, we don’t say “Nanami” but I found out “Shichimi” called it outside of Japan.

In fact, Nanami togarashi contains seven kinds of spices, which are

  1. coarsely ground red chili pepper
  2. ground sanshō (“Japanese pepper”)
  3. orange peel
  4. sesame seed
  5. *hemp seed
  6. ground ginger
  7. Nori (seaweed)

It is commonly used for adding flavor to food such as Udon noodles, Yakitori ( Japanse style skewered chicken )

It’s kind of addictive flavor.

Some of authentic “Nanami Togarashi” such as “Zenkouji Togarashi” is kicking hot, but this “S&B” Shichimi Togarashi is mildly hot.

I use this a lot for marinating meat when we want to change the taste.

1) Marinade chicken wings with 1/2 cup sake (white wine) and ground fresh black pepper for 10 minutes
