Cooking tip
  1. Soak the wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes. This prevents them from burning on the grill.

Instructions

  • 1 Mix the brown sugar, mirin, sake, soy sauce, vinegar, ginger and garlic granules in a medium bowl. Reserve half for the glaze.
  • 2 Place the chicken wings in a large re-sealable plastic bag and add the remaining half of the marinade, turning so they are well coated. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or longer for extra flavour.
  • 3 Stir the cornflour into the reserved marinade and bring to the boil in a small saucepan. Reduce the heat to a low simmer for 2 minutes, then remove from the heat and cool for 5 minutes. Stir in Wasabi Furikake Seasoning then pour the glaze into a large bowl and set aside.
  • 4 Remove the wings from the marinade and discard any remaining marinade. Thread the wing pieces onto skewers. Grill the wings over a medium heat 20-25 minutes or until they are cooked through, turning occasionally.
  • 5 Brush the wings with the reserved glaze. Sprinkle with the additional Wasabi Furikake Seasoning and spring onions before serving.
