  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1 cup of cold sparkling water
  • 2 cups of vegetable oil (for frying)
  • For the sauce:
  • 1/4 cup of gochujang (Korean red pepper paste)
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 200°F (93°C) to keep the cooked wings warm while you make the sauce.

  3. Gradually whisk in the cold sparkling water until you have a smooth batter.
  4. Heat the vegetable oil in a deep fryer or a large, heavy-bottomed pot to 350°F (175°C).
  5. Dip each chicken wing into the batter, allowing any excess to drip off, and carefully place it in the hot oil.
  6. Fry the wings in batches for about 10-12 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy.
  7. Transfer the fried wings to a wire rack placed on a baking sheet to drain any excess oil, then keep them warm in the preheated oven.
  8. In a separate bowl, whisk together the gochujang, soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey, minced garlic, sesame oil, and sesame seeds to make the sauce.
  9. Once all the wings are fried, place them in a large mixing bowl, pour the sauce over them, and toss until they are evenly coated.
