West Indies Wings

Curried Coconut Wings, Island Inspried Wings, Caribbean hot sauce wings, Habanero wings, coconut milk and ginger wings,

The title of this recipe is inspired by my love of the Caribbean and their flavors. The ingredients include Caribbean hot sauce, coconut milk, ginger, and curry powder.

This wing recipe is the result of my favorite flavor pairings coming together in a spicy yet flavorful wing sauce. The combination of coconut milk, curry spice, Caribbean hot sauce and ginger make this sauce supremely addictive, complemented with the right amount of heat. I’ve made this recipe 4 times and every time it was a hit- people were pouring the wing sauce on everything at my Superbowl party. The sauce from these wings would be great on rice or pasta as well- double the batch and you can get creative!

Ingredients: 

  • 15-20 chicken wings and/or drummettes
  • 1 8oz. can coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon curry seasoning
  • 2/3 cup Caribbean style hot sauce (habanero base). For those who don’t tolerate heat, this amount can be reduced to 1/3 cup.
  • 1 (heaping) tablespoon ginger

Directions:

Combine sauce ingredients and stir well. Reserve 1/3 cup for basting and 1/3 cup to be served with the wings as a dipping sauce.

Marinate the wings in the remaining sauce for a minimum of 30 minutes.

Grill:

Heat your grill to medium high heat at 350 degrees and create a direct and indirect cooking zone. Oil the grates of the grill so the wings do not stick. Grill the wings on indirect heat for 7-8 minutes each side. Finish the wings on direct heat to get nice char marks, basting with sauce on each side. Once the internal temp reaches 170 degrees, pull them off. Tent under foil for 10 minutes and serve with additional sauce.

Do you have a favorite wing recipe? Would love to hear about it! If you love wings, you will also love my Chipotle Sriracha Wings with blue cheese dip, my original long standing favorite wing recipe.

    Am I the only one who sees something weird on this page?

    “Ingredients:
    15-20 chicken wings and/or order viagra online drummettes”

    I checked on two different PCs and see the same thing. You might have gotten hacked and someone inserted an ad into your recipes.
