Bpeek kai mao daeng - Drunken chicken wings

Finger food for adults only ???

In Thai mao means drunk (kimao means to be drunk), and daeng means red. bpeek kai are chicken wings.

This is a useful recipe for something to do with chicken wings. My wife cuts the wings off all the chickens she uses and keeps them in a large bowl in the freezer, when the bowl is full we make this up, and serve it as "tapas" in the restaurant in the evenings. It is good finger food, but perhaps only for adults.


one and half pounds of chicken wings.


1 tablespoon	fish sauce
quarter cup	thinly sliced lemon grass
10-15 cloves	garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon	freshly milled black pepper
1 tablespoon	chopped red birdseye chilis (prik ki nu)
quarter cup	chopped coriander/cilantro (including roots if poss)
quarter cup 	tomato ketchup
quarter cup	whisky (preferably bourbon or rice whiskey)


Mix the marinade, stir the wings until thoroughly coated and leave to
marinade for 12-24 hours in the fridge.

They should then be barbequed or grilled over fairly high heat until
cooked through.

This is then served with a dipping sauce that consists of 4 parts
mayonnaise, 4 parts tomato ketchup to one part hot chili sauce (Tabasco
is suitable, or anything hotter than that.)

(as for the leading question, most if not all the alcohol is burned off
in the barbequeing process, so it is quite safe for children, but if you
*are* making it for the kiddies you might want to reduce or leave out
the chilis!)
