* If you don't have fish sauce, soy sauce is an acceptable subtitute.


  1. Preheat oven to 300'F.
  2. Cut off the end piece (tip) and then separate the wing into two parts: drumette and the flat piece
  3. In a small bowl mix together fish sauce, vinegar, sriracha, and lime juice.
  4. In another small bowl, stir together brown sugar, salt, and cayenne pepper.
  5. Heat oil in a small sauce pan and saute the onion and garlic until translucent. Add in the water and the fish sauce mixture. Stir until well blended. Mix in the brown sugar mixture. Bring to a boil. Add the lemongrass, cilantro and Thai basil.
  6. Turn down heat to medium and cook sauce for 20 minutes.
  7. Allow sauce to cool to room temperature.
  8. Place in a heat proof container and use an immersion blender to chop up the solids.
  9. Pour half the sauce into a separate container. This is what you will use to toss the wings after they are grilled.
  10. Arrange wings in an oven safe glass baking dish. Drizzle with half of the sauce. Cover with aluminium foil and bake for one hour.
  11. Preheat grill to 500'F.
  12. Grill wings, turning them frequently until they are golden brown and crispy. This will take about 15 minutes.
  13. Place wings in a large bowl. Pour sauce over the wings and toss to coat evenly.
  14. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  15. Garnish with green onions.
