Street Food Essentials: Hong Kong Wings

Andy Anderson !


This is the kind of street food, that I love. The recipe is as close as I can get to the taste I experienced on the bustling streets of Hong Kong. The actual recipe is made with things like thighs and legs, but I thought that I would convert it to wings.

In addition, I added a spicy honey/mustard drizzle that is not a part of the original recipe, but really compliments the wings. My main photo includes the honey/mustard drizzle.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
