Crispy oven baked Prawn paste wings

This yummy recipe is shared by my baking group Ms Yvonne Mah. I am so curious to try out this oven baked prawn paste wings shared by her. The results are so crispy and most importantly is baked in the oven. Thus no oily pot and oily kitchen to clean up after cooking. You can always change the flavor of the wings as the critical part is the coating of flour and olive oil before baking to get the crispness of the wings.

I had modified this recipe to suit my family taste as we like less salty but we did not compromise on the crispness of the wings. Yummy .

Recipe :

18-20 chicken wings or drumettes
Prawn paste powder by Chef ( 1/2 pack - 50g)
1 tbsp. of oyster sauce
1 tbsp. of shaoxing wine

Flour mixture for coating before baking:

1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda

Mix all together and set aside.


~ Wash clean the wings and pat dry
~ Put all the marinate and leave in fridge for few hours or overnight
~ An hour before baking, coat the marinated chicken wings with the flour mixture on both sides of the wings.
~ Leave to air dry on the baking sheet about 10 mins
~ Brush some olive oil on the wings before baking. ( one side will do)
~ Bake at 200 degree for 20-25 mins on grill mode.
~ Please turn over in between the baking time when one side turn golden brown and crispy to bake the other side till golden brown too.
~ Enjoy when warm.


~ If you are not able to get hold of this prawn paste powder as I bought from a friend whom she got it from Malaysia, you can also use Lee Kum Kee Shrimp sauce available in any supermarkets.
~ Add about 1 to  1.5 tbsp of sauce to the wings as this sauce is quite salty.
~ Add 1 tbsp of sugar or more to even out the saltiness.
~ Chicken wings can be substituted to fish like black pomfret or spring chicken.
