Kara age, Japanese style fried chicken, in this case wings, make a great bar food or appetizer. The slightly sweet and savory flavor combined with the crunchy exterior lends itself to the flavor of a good sake or ale. My favorite with this kind of snack is a pale ale with a nice crisp texture and mild flavor. It just makes for a good football snack or something to munch on while waiting for the smoker to do it's job.
I make mine by using my standard teriyaki marinade, 'amping' it up with a bit more garlic and ginger and letting the wings marinade for a couple of hours at least. Then dredge in a mix of corn starch and fine flour, which gives it an exceptional crunch and pan-frying until done. No sauce necessary, these were packed with flavor.
