split chicken wings, 20 pieces
flour (corn starch for gluten-free)
white pepper
sesame seeds
green onion, chopped
½ clove garlic
2 tbsp tamari
1 tbsp mirin (rice wine)
1 tbsp sake
2 tsp brown sugar

Salt chicken wings and leave them at room temperature for 15 minutes. Then put wings in a bowl and lightly cover each piece in flour. If using a deep-fryer, cook them at 360°F for 5 to 6 minutes. If using an oven, bake wings at 400°F for 30 to 40 minutes.

Combine the tamari soy sauce, mirin, sake and brown sugar in a pot with crushed fresh garlic and bring it to a boil. Next, put the sauce on low until it has boiled/reduced down to half.

Brush sauce on the chicken wings, then sprinkle roasted sesame seeds, white pepper and mix with chopped green onion.
