Justine made a recipe of chicken wings! 
Adapted from Smitten Kitchen
Serves 2


10 Chicken Wings
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon coarse or kosher salt, plus more to taste
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp hoisin sauce
2 tbsp mild honey
1 tsp sesame oil
2 tsp of Okazu chili oil
1 tbsp soy sauce, for coating
1 tbsp honey, for coating
1 1/2 tbsp sesame seeds, lightly toasted
1 scallion, finely chopped in slivers
2 wedges of lemon


Heat oven to 425°F. Line a large shallow baking pan with foil and lightly oil it.

Stir wings together with garlic, salt, soy, hoisin, honey, sesame oil and Okazu chili oil until coated.

Spread wings and any sauce that fell to the bottom of the bowl out on the prepared baking pan in one layer.

Roast, turning over once, until cooked through, about 30 minutes.

Lightly coat the wings with the extra soy sauce and honey.

Quickly broil for 1-2 minutes.

Transfer wings to a serving plate and top with sesame seeds and scallion. Drizzle with Okazu chili oil and serve with a squeeze of lemon.

Beet Kinpira

Do you know about kinpira-gobo? We used to make it for our orinigiri (Japanese rice ball) when we had a store front on Dupont street in Toronto. Kinpira is usually made with burdock roots and carrots.

Since I am in Japan, I sent OKAZU to my Japanese friends to see how they use it. 

This recipe is from one of my friends who make kinpira with beets instead of burdock roots and carrots. It's super easy and delicious, so I wanted to share it with you!
