for the dip: 
1 cup|135 grams raw cashews
2 teaspoons grated garlic 
1 tablespoon chili crisp 
1 bunch cilantro, stems only (leaves reserved for another day)
1 bunch dill, stems only (fronds reserved for another day)
kosher salt, to taste
apple cider vinegar, to taste 
granulated sugar, to taste 

for the wings: 
1 pound|450 grams chicken wings 
1 teaspoon kosher salt 
¾ teaspoon granulated sugar, plus more to taste
¼ teaspoon ground white pepper 
vegetable oil, as needed 
2 teaspoons to 2 tablespoons white vinegar powder
fish sauce, to taste
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 scallion, minced



  1. Make the dip: Cover raw cashews with boiling water in a medium heat-proof bowl and let sit for 5 minutes, then strain. Combine the cashews with ¾ cup|177 ml hot water, the garlic, chili crisp, and cilantro and dill stems in the bowl of a blender. Puree until smooth and creamy, adding more water if needed. Season with salt, vinegar, and sugar to taste. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. 
  2. Light a grill. Pat chicken wings dry with paper towels. 
  3. In a large bowl, toss the chicken wings with salt, ½ teaspoon sugar, and the pepper. 
  4. Brush the wings all over with oil. 
  5. Working in batches, grill the chicken wings, skin-side down. Cover and cook until crisp grill marks appear, about 10 minutes. Flip the wings, cover, and continue grilling until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part reads 170°F, about 5 to 10 minutes more. 
  6. Remove the wings and toss immediately with the remaining ¼ teaspoon sugar, the white vinegar powder, fish sauce, garlic, and scallion. Serve immediately with the dipping sauce.
