Lime Chili Wings, starring Sosu Srirachup

Indulge Local with Sosu Srirachup, an addictingly bold, sweet and spicy sauce made in Oakland.


Sosu founder and chief sauce maker, Lisa, was inspired to create a more flavorful, more interesting ketchup during her culinary travels through Southeast Asia. Through much experimentation, she developed the perfect small-batch recipe using fresh, organic Early Girl tomatoes, fiery housemade sriracha, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, sea salt and garlic. A long, slow simmer gives the sauce its rich, luxurious taste and texture without the use of high fructose corn syrup or tomato paste.

We knew Srirachup would be an shine as a condiment for burgers and hot dogs, but its versatility in recipes has made it a “must have.” It’s a great ingredient to punch up a simple stirfry or egg dish; make mac ‘n cheese more interesting; gussy up guacamole; or even add a kick to Bloody Marys.

The natural sweetness of tomatoes in Srirachup creates a lovely golden brown caramelization in grilling and roasting recipes. Give it a try with these Thai-inspired Lime Chili Chicken Wings. Sosu is the key ingredient in an easy glaze that combines sweet, spicy, sour and savory flavors.

Chili Lime Wings

Serves 2-4
Recipe adapted from Sosu


  • 1 lb chicken wings, separated
  • 1/4 cup Sosu Srirachup
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 tbsp Thai fish sauce (nam pla) (optional to boost savory flavor)
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro (optional)


Clean and dry wings thoroughly. Combine Sosu Srirachup, lime juice, fish sauce and soy sauce in a small bowl. Toss chicken wings with half the sauce reserving the rest. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.

When ready to cook, preheat oven to 450F. Line a baking sheet with heavy duty foil. Arrange the wings on the baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes. Flip and bake on the other side for 10-15 minutes, or until wings are thoroughly cooked and caramelized.

Remove wings from the pan and toss with the reserved sauce and cilantro. Serve and enjoy!
