These air fried Vietnamese Sweet & Savory Wings are sweet, sticky and garlicky – the secret ingredient, Red Boat Fish Sauce is an umami bomb for these wings!

I use an Instant Omni Plus Oven (check current price here), but this recipe should work well in any Air Fryer Oven.

Ingredients

  • 2.25 Pounds Wings (18 Flats and Drumettes)
  • 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
  • ¼ Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • ¼ Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ¼ Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper

SAUCE

  • 3 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Red Boat Fish Sauce
  • ¼ Cup Granulated Sugar
  • ¼ Teaspoon White Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Water
  • 2 Scallions, chopped

Method

  • 1)

    In a large bowl, combine 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder, 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch, ¼ Teaspoon Garlic Powder, ¼ Teaspoon Kosher Salt, ¼ Ground Black Pepper and stir to combine. Toss the wings to coat evenly. Brush the basket with a little bit of oil so the wings don’t stick and place the wings into the airfry basket.

    **Make sure you are using Baking Powder and NOT Baking Soda – baking soda will make the wings inedible.

  • 2)

    Choose Air Fry at 400°F for 30 Minutes, flip half way through. When the wings are almost done cooking, make the sauce. Use a large non-stick pan and heat 2 Tablespoons of Oil on medium-high heat, add 3 Minced Garlic Cloves and shake the pan constantly to keep the garlic moving, when it starts to brown a little, drain the garlic onto a colander lined with a paper towel and set aside. Use the same pan and add 1 Tablespoons Red Boat Fish Sauce, ¼ Cup Granulated Sugar, ¼ Teaspoon White Vinegar and 1 Tablespoon Water, use medium heat and let the sauce simmer for about 2-3 minutes, the sugar should be melted and the sauce should look like syrup – toss in the chopped Scallions and turn off the heat. Add the wings and fried garlic and toss to evenly coat the wings in the sauce. Garnish with sliced Thai chilis if you like them spicy. Enjoy!
