Deepfried Nam Yue Chicken Wings Recipe 南乳雞翼

Sunday, August 31, 2008 | Labels: , , , |

Everyone loves chicken wings right? I have featured chicken wings before but this time these chicken wings were marinated in red fermented beancurd (Nam Yue- 南乳). The latter is quite pungent and is a cousin of the other plain fermented beancurd or Fu Yue (in Cantonese). See my Kangkung with Fu Yue. Due to Nam Yue's distinctly pungent flavour, you will either love it or hate it but do give it a try. Think of Nam Yue as a much stronger version of miso or as some red Chinese cheese. These chicken wings can be served on its' own as a snack or served as a dish with some rice. I included some pictures of the Nam Yue for reference purposes. With chicken wings, as long as you have a decent marinade, it's pretty hard to mess them up! Oh, and of course you have to make sure they are cooked throughly as well....


8 chicken wings/ drummettes
Enough oil for deep-frying
Corn flour for dredging

3 cubes of Nam Yue
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp Chinese Rice Wine (Shaoxing Wine)
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 tbsp fresh ginger juice


Marinade the wings and drummettes for at least 1 hour or as long as you can (max=overnight). Heat enough oil for deep-frying. Dredge the wings in some corn flour and fry till golden brown. Serve.

Nam Yue - the star of this recipe
