    I made these wings for a potluck. They were really good. I actually forgot to buy lime juice the first time that I made this, so I used lemon juice and it turned out great. The second time I made this I used lime juice and it was equally as good.

    Using low sodium soy sauce and leaving out the salt will reduce the sodium content of this recipe and make it much healthier.LAG

    I imagine ground ginger will work as well. Fresh ginger root does it give it a 'fresher, brighter' flavor. If using ground ginger, use half of what the recipe calls for in fresh. Also make sure you mix it in well, so no clumps are left to surprise anyone. :)
