So one day I wanted to make wings in a honey sauce - I opened the closet and remembered the honey was finished the day before. So I took “Selan” (date syrup) and built around the recipe. True, it's not a revolutionary or innovative recipe, rather the combination of lemon and date syrup - garlic - a lot of soy and other recipes. But it always does the trick. The outcome is great wings with four wonderfully integrated flavors and great, pleasant tartness from the lemon, delicate saltiness from the soy, sweetness of the “Silan” and spicy tingle from the garlic and mustard. This is a wonderful dish when hosting, watching sports, movies and general social activities!
- Prep Time : 20 minutes
- Cook Time : 20 minutes
- Clean the wings and cut them in half (at the joint is best).
- Put the wings in a pot with water and bring to a boil.
- After boiling, lower the heat and cook for another 5 minutes.
- Drain and transfer to a bowl and wait for the wings to cool slightly.
- During this time, prepare the sauce - stir with in a bowl (with a whisk) the lemon, date syrup, garlic, mustard and soy sauce until the mixture is unified and the mustard dissolves - and then set aside.
- Pour flour in a bowl and rub the wings until they are coated with flour on all sides.
- Fry the wings in deep oil until golden brown - and then place onto paper towels (kitchen towels to soak up the oil!).
- Heat oil in a large skillet.
- When the oil is hot, pour in the sauce and boil it.
- When the sauce is bubbling - put in the wings.
- Toss the wings in the sauce and stir with a wooden spoon until all wings are covered with sauce.
- Remove to a serving bowl, sprinkle with sesame seeds - and serve.
