Deep fried

Inspired by Glad's Fish Paste Wanton, and since I have already got some sotong paste in the fridge. I turned it into Sotong Paste Wanton instead.

Verdict: Good


For a long time, we didn't have Fried Prawn Paste Chicken Wings (暇酱鸡). This is a hot favourite with my family and it is so easy to prepare. The trick is to marinate it over night.


What you need

1 tbsp fine shrimp paste
1 kg chicken wing
Rice flour for coating


Marinate it over night.

Deep fried till golden brown.

Note: Per some enquiry, here is the fine shrimp paste that I used. This paste sometime is also known as prawn paste. This is different from those used in rojak.

Mine version is Cantonese Style.

  1. Edith,

    I was so muddle-headed that I didn't know your romantic pic wouldn't show on the forum once I re-shuffled my album. Just realised when I went in to check, hence have reposted the pic on the thread.



  2. Chicken wings look good...the ingredients are so simple, guess I shd give it a try!

  3. Fried Food Heaven! Love deep-fried foos :D
    Great job, Edith.

    Tried it yesterday. It was THE quick and simple to cook and prepare recipe ever. Really tasty and yummy. I used drumlettes instead, only thing, the skin just isn't crispy enough.


  5. Bee, try frying it at low heat and when the wings are cooked, increase the heat to brown it.

  6. Edith,

    The prawn paste is rojak paste??

  7. no. I used Lee Kum Kee Fine Shrimp Paste also known as prawn paste to some.

  9. oh dear...what am i gonna do with the bottle of rojak paste I bought for this!!! So E, the chicken skin is suppose to be crispy then? hope to try it out this weekend. tks _k

  10. Sorry that my recipe wasn't clear. You can use your prawn paste for royak. Mine was crispy when eaten hot. If not, you can coat it with a little corn flour.

  11. E, I went to the supermarket and wasn't able to get the LKK prawn paste. Funny huh? When u have time do u think u could take a picture of the bottle please. TKS _k

  12. K, I have bought a bottle for you to see. Hopefully you can get it.

  13. You know, its funny - they dont have in any of the supermarkets here! Either that or I haven't been looking at the right one. Hm, looks like I'll have to try this some other time when I can get my hands on some.

    Btw, tks so much for the pix :x_k

  14. Hi,
    Do we need to add sugar or water with the paste?

  15. Kitchen Junior,
    After you cleaned and washed the chicken, just add the paste. Dun need others stuff.
    Let me know whether you like it.
