3 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp Chinese cooking wine or dry sherry (Note 1)
2 tsp sriracha or 1 ½ tsp dried chili flakes (optional)
1 tsp sesame oil (optional)
1 tsp white sugar
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 ½ tsp fresh ginger, finely grated

Cook half the skewers for 3 to 5 minutes on each side until deep golden brown, using spatula to press them so they cook through evenly. Repeat with remaining skewers.

NOTES
1. You could also use Mirin (Japanese cooking sake) but if you do, do not use the 1 tsp of sugar as Mirin is sweeter than Chinese cooking wine.
2. These can also be cooked on the BBQ or broiled. To broil, heat the broiler on high, place the skewers on a tray and cook each side for 5 minutes or until dark golden brown and cooked through.
