Korean Hot Chicken Wings with Peanuts & Scallions

Yields 3-4 portions

In a bowl mix the rice flour, all-purpose flour, and cornstarch.  Set aside.
In a separate bowl mix the buttermilk, garlic, tobasco, salt, and pepper. Add wings and allow to marinate in the refrigerator overnight.

In a medium size pot combine the Gochujang, soy, mango, vinegar, honey, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, a lime juice, and toasted benne seeds.  Mix well.  Place over medium and heat and allow to simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.  After 15 minutes remove from heat and add butter.  Mix until incorporated.

Heat deep fryer to 350 degrees.  Remove wings from marinade shaking to remove excess buttermilk.  Roll down in the flour mixture and place in the fryer for 6-8 minutes until cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees.  Remove from fryer and place on a sheet pan.  Using a pastry brush, brush wings with the sauce and sprinkle crumbled peanuts and scallion over the top.
