Fish wings are a cut from a fish starting just after the gills and extending back to the pectoral fin. Also known as fish throats they contain a surprising amount of meat and are a real delicacy.
I was given these snapper wings recently and just had to deep-fry them after marinating them in a Chinese 5 spice and caramel sauce marinade.
Make a marinade of:
- 1 Tbsp Chinese 5 spice (see my blend here)
- 1 Tbsp caramel cooking sauce (use dark soy if you don’t have any)
- 1 tsp ginger, minced
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- 1/3 cup garlic-infused olive oil
Then thoroughly coat the wings (inside and out) with the marinade. Pop them in the fridge overnight if possible or for at least a few hours.
Get your choice of oil nice and hot and deep-fry for about 15 – 20 minutes.
Drain well and serve hot.
Look at that flaky goodness:
