1 · 36 minutes · Today we’re going beyond watery diner salads, sporting browning lettuce, one measly crouton, a white-washed tomato, and a solitary red onion ring. (Thank goodness) Instead we’re loading our chopsticks with fresh, spicy ginger, salty fish sauce, fried lentils and chickpeas, chickpea flour, peanuts cabbage… and… and… so much happy goodness.

Burmese-Style Wings with Lime, Cilantro, and Shallot Salsa recipe on Food52.com

4 · I am a huge fan of chicken wings, although I am not a big fan of Buffalo wings. I think the best part of the chicken outside of the two oysters is the wing. Wings have loads of flavor and lots of crispy skin. It is a good ratio. I have adapted a recipe from Naomi Duguid's Burma book and made her Shallot Lime Chutney into a marinade/salsa combo. It works well and I really like the way the shallots get all schmaltzie when they cook in the chicken fat.

  • 1 Lime
