Wings are incredibly popular in Japan, where they’re fried, steamed, poached, and, of course, grilled. Called teba yaki, grilled chicken wings are prepared in a number of ways and also served skewered, as yakitori. We love them with shichimi togarashi, but they’re also terrific just grilled with salt.
- Yield: 4 Servings
- ½ cup sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons shichimi togarashi
- ¼ cup soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 pounds chicken wings
- Whisk together the sesame oil, shichimi togarashi, soy sauce, and salt in a bowl to make the marinade. Pour three-fourths of the marinade onto a baking dish or rimmed sheet pan; reserve the rest. Lay the wings in the marinade and flip them 4 times to generously coat all over.
- Preheat a grill to high. Grill the wings for about 8 minutes, flipping about every 1 minute and brushing on the reserved marinade after each turn. The wings are ready when they are sizzling and browned. Serve immediately.
