How To Make asian scorpion pepper jelly wings

Test Kitchen Tips
We substituted in a different hot pepper jelly than Sherri recommends, but the results were still de-lish!
  • 1
    Mix star anise, ginger, onion and salt and pepper together in a mixing bowl. Rub all wing pieces and marinate for at least 4 hours best overnight.
  • 2
    Deep fry wings at 350 degrees in batches for 8-10 minutes until golden brown and juices run clear. Remove from fryer and drain on paper towels.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, add all sauce indredients to a medium-high heat sauce pan and whisk. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a simmmer. Allow sauce to reduce to a 1/3. This may take 10-12 minutes.
  • 4
    Add sauce and wings in a large mixining bowl. Toss wings until well coated.
  • 5
    Transfer wings to a serving platter pour sauce over wings and garnish with cilantro.
