The family classic – Soy braised wings

My cousin has been a big fan for soy braised wings. He loves these wings so much that grandma made a whole box (like a good 5 lbs!) of them and gave to my cousin as she said farewell to him at the airport before his flight across the Pacific back home. If you want to know the rest of the story, he finished all the wings before even boarding the plane!

Braised wings and potatoes are usually made with dark soy sauce to give it a browned look in Cantonese cooking. However as there is virtually no gluten-free dark soy sauce available in my area, so this Japanese style light colored version it is! ⁠

Isn’t soy sauce contains wheat?

Conventional soy sauce do contain wheat a lot of times as it helps with the fermentation process. However, if you need gluten-free substitutes, there are a lot of options available too!

In place of conventional soy sauce, you can use the following and I have also link where to buy for you! (Affiliate links)
