3 lbs (1.5 kg) chicken wings, about 18 pieces
1 tbsp (15 ml) red curry paste
2 tbsp (25 ml) fish sauce or 3 pounded anchovies
1 tbsp (15 ml) soya sauce
3 tbsp (45 ml) lime juice
1 tsp (5 ml) sugar
1 tbsp (15 ml) finely chopped coriander (cilantro), leaves and stems
2 tsp (10 ml) minced ginger
1 tsp (5 ml) finely chopped, deveined lime leaf (optional)
1 tbsp (15 ml) oil
¼ cup (50 ml) honey
1 tbsp (15 ml) minced garlic
1 to 2 tsp (5 to 10 ml) finely chopped chili peppers, preferably bird-eye chilies
Lime wedges for garnish
18 long bamboo skewers, soaked in water
Marinate wings for at least 2 hours in a mixture of curry paste, 1 tbsp (15 ml) fish sauce, 1 tbsp (15 ml) lime juice, sugar, coriander, ginger, lime leaf (if available), and oil.
In a small saucepan over very low heat, stir in the honey, 1 tbsp (15 ml) fish sauce, remaining 2 tbsp (25 ml) lime juice and garlic until it reaches a simmer and is well mixed; set aside.
Thread each wing onto a skewer, starting at the tip of the drumette through the 3 sections so the wing tip is at the tip of the skewer and the wing is stretched straight. Grill over hot charcoal or under a broiler until cooked through and nicely browned; brush with the garlic glaze, turning each wing 2 or 3 times and glazing each time. On the last turn, sprinkle with the chopped chilies to taste (they should stick to the glaze). Serve garnished with lime wedges.
