by Chef Sami Udell


1/4 cup tamarind 

1/4 cup fish sauce 

1/4 c brown sugar 

1 lime, juice and zest 

1 small knob ginger, chopped 

1 Serrano chili 

2 garlic cloves 

1 tbsp vinegar (rice wine or white) 

Salt to taste 

2 squeezes Drizzle

Garnish to your liking with thinly sliced shallots, sliced Serrano chilis, and cilantro leaves


Active Time: 10 minutes

Full Time: 1 hour

Serves 4

Make your wings with this Sami Udell recipe (for the guaranteed tastiest, crispiest chicken possible).


Blend all ingredients besides your Drizzle in a blender or with a hand blender.


Then transfer the sauce to a non stick pan on medium heat, constantly stirring. When it bubbles, just 2 minutes, remove from heat for your perfect yummy tamarind caramel sauce. 


Cool it down on a low heat and add your 2 squeezes of Drizzle, whisking together until completely combined. Toss hot wings in sauce until fully coated.


Garnish with sliced shallots, Serrano, cilantro stems & leaves.
