Put all ingredients except wings in a food processor and process into a thick paste. Spoon paste into a zip top bag and add wings to coat thoroughly. Let sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
Heat 1" oil in a saucepan until very hot. Shake off excess paste and carefully drop in the wings, in one layer only. Cover immediately and let fry for 7-8 minutes. Turn the wings in the oil, cover, and fry for another 7-8 minutes. Drain and serve with pickled ginger.
