Ingredients
  • 3 pounds chicken wings, split at the joint, tips removed
  • 2 tablespoons roughly chopped garlic
  • 1/4 cup chopped shallots
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh ginger
  • 3 tablespoons chopped scallion whites
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped lemongrass bottoms
  • 3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup fish sauce
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons peanut oil
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup dry-roasted peanuts, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Directions

Rinse the wings under cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Set aside in a large bowl while you prepare the marinade. Combine the garlic, shallots, ginger, scallions, lemongrass, brown sugar, fish sauce, lime juice and peanut oil in a food processor and process until smooth.

Pour the marinade over the wings and place in a large resealable plastic bag. Refrigerate overnight.

Preheat a grill to medium. Remove the wings from the marinade; reserve the marinade to brush the wings while they cook. Place the wings on the grill, season with 1 teaspoon salt and cook, turning every few minutes and basting with the marinade for the first 18 or so minutes. Continue to grill the wings until cooked through, 8 to 10 more minutes.

Place the wings on a serving platter and garnish with the peanuts and cilantro.
