Thai Crying Tiger Chicken Wings Serving Presentation

Thai Crying Tiger Chicken Wings

Chicken wings are a favourite of mine but marinated and oven baked or grilled instead of deep-fried they are far less calorific and make a great appetiser. I like to cook mine using a Crying Tiger marinade, although this is quite a hot sauce when used as a dip it’s less spicy as a marinade yet still delivers a sufficient level of heat for me. I keep thinking they would also go well with the Southern Thai paste but haven’t managed to get around to doing it yet. (Update. I have and they were great but only for the real heat lovers out there! You could use the Bangkok style curry paste for a less spicy experience)

This is one of them. A version of a marinade that is quite unique to the region in which I grew up, in fact growing up there when I did there were more Khmer (Cambodian) speakers than Thai. I think there are many Cambodian influences going on here and an overwhelming freshness from the herbs and spices involved. This is a great favourite with kids as well as adults!
