Fried Shrimp Sauce Chicken Wings

240120121003 copy

Crispy fried chicken wings marinated in fermented shrimp sauce is my favourite snack to serve when friends gather to watch soccer games on TV. The fermented shrimp adds umami flavour to the juicy, crispy wings. This recipe takes little time to cook, so you can wow your guests and cheer for your favourite team at the same time! Just prep the wings overnight and fry them up in batches before the big match and/or during the commercial breaks.


20 pieces chicken wing

3 tablespoons fermented shrimp sauce

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon Chinese rose wine(optional)

1/3 cup rice flour

1 tablespoon cornflour



1). Marinate wings with shrimp sauce, sugar, chili powder, garlic powder and rose wine. Keep them sealed in a ziplock bag and store in the fridge overnight.

2). When you’re ready to serve, combine rice flour, wheat flour and cornflour in a ziplock bag and toss the wings until they are evenly coated.

3). Heat oil and deep fry wings until golden brown.


The shrimp paste is already salty so do not add salt!. I use Lee Kum Kee or Co Gai.

  2. Hi Joyce,

    Thanks so much for your kind words and the link exchange.

    I AM going to use your recipe for glazed cinnamon rolls this weekend. I love them and yours look extra tasty!
    I'll also be shopping for onions to grow my own spring onions.

    Have a good day yourself!

  3. These sounds like great party food! I love the flavor of fish sauce, but I've never used fermented shrimp sauce. I'd love to try it.

  4. Looks great. If you like chicken, you might like my take on Sichuan chicken.
