From spring rolls to sushi and satay, Asia is full of finger-friendly snacks. Fried chicken wings are American finger food recipe staples, but Asian versions like adobo wings or Japanese karaage are just as finger-lickin' good. The secret? Potato starch gives these fried bites a deliciously crispy crust. Our Indonesian chicken wings are also cooked in coconut water before frying, creating a subtle sweetness. For a more saucy chicken reminiscent of Buffalo wings, try making a Thai-inspired hot sauce with ketchup, Sriracha, and soy sauce.
There's perhaps no snack more satisfying than meat on a stick, and satay—the classic Javanese dish of skewered and grilled meat—is one of the best versions. It's also endlessly variable: a typical Indonesian version can be made with lamb in a sweet-and-sour marinade, but you'll find different recipes across Southeast Asia. Thai muu satay use pork marinated with sweet coconut milk, citrusy lemongrass, and pungent galangal. Satay udang is a Singapore-style shrimp satay with lime juice, brown sugar, and ground macadamia nuts.
