Spicy Asian-Style Wing Sauce


This Asian wing sauce is savory, gingery, and delicious. We fried some wings for the football game on Sunday and then decided we wanted an Asian-style sauce instead of the norm. Being the experimental type, I concocted this sauce using ingredients I already had and it turned out to be a touchdown recipe!

1 1/4 cup sauce


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds

  • ½ cup light soy sauce

  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • 3 tablespoons honey

  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon ginger paste

  • 2 teaspoons ground mustard

  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes


  1. Heat olive oil and sesame seeds in a small saucepan over low heat; cook and stir until seeds are slightly toasted, 3 to 5 minutes. Add soy sauce, brown sugar, honey, and vinegar; whisk until brown sugar is dissolved, 1 to 2 minutes.

  2. Mix ginger paste, ground mustard, and red pepper flakes into soy sauce mixture; whisk until sauce is smooth, 2 to 3 minutes. Bring sauce to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes more.


For more spice add more red pepper flakes or a dash of cayenne pepper.
