  1. In a large bowl, mix together the sriracha, garlic, ginger, lemon juice, sesame oil, soy sauce and sugar. Add the wings and turn to coat well.
  2. When the barbecue is hot, cook the wings for 25-30 mins, turning regularly and brushing with any excess marinade left in the bowl.
  3. Once the wings are cooked through and golden, and no pink meat remains, put on a plate and sprinkle with the sesame seeds and spring onions to serve.

Tip: To get ahead, prepare the chicken wings the night before. Complete step 1, then cover the bowl of marinated wings with clingfilm and leave in the fridge until you are ready to barbecue.
