Korean BBQ meets Buffalo wings. These succulent finger foods are served with crunchy Asian pear to create a unique flavour adventure. Gochujang or Korean pepper paste is made from chilli powder, glutinous rice powder, fermented soybeans and salt. It is used to flavour stews, soups and marinades, and as a condiment at the table. It is available in Asian markets and online specialty stores Chicken wings may be grilled without prebaking.
