Spicy Coconut Milk Herb Turkey

Spicy Coconut Milk Herb Turkey - Adun

Exactly 30 minutes ago, I served up this Spicy Coconut milk herb turkey dish, and I told myself I would only eat half of it.

You guessed right, I ate all of it. It was so damn good, this was me after the first bite.

For the first time in forever, I found turkey wings at Walmart. I looked at them like a kid looks at a bicycle he's always wanted, wrapped, under the Christmas tree.

Well, I saw them and I swore I was going to make the best out of it. I was thinking about what to do with it. I knew I wanted it packed with flavour, fresh, spicy, sweet and in a sauce.

So I thought, marinate it exactly that way. That blend of coconut milk, cilantro and pepper needs to be studied in school. And I added some brown sugar for that sweetness. When I tell you this was perfection I promise you I am not lying at all!


  • Salt
  • Thyme
  • Green Onions
  • 2 Red Onions
  • 2 tsp of Curry
  • 4 Garlic Cloves
  • 4 Turkey Wings
  • 4 Red Habaneros
  • A Thumb of Ginger
  • A Bunch of Cilantro
  • 2 Red Bell Peppers
  • 2 tsp of Black Garlic
  • 1 Can of Coconut Milk
  • 2 tbsp of Brown Sugar
  • 2 tsp of Cayenne Pepper

Made the marinade and left marinating overnight, had sweet dreams about it, daydreams at work and on the way home and when I finally got to it.

It was a WRAP!

The beautiful thing about these Coconut Milk Herb Turkey wings is, that you only season the marinade and that's it. Without further ado, I will get to it and save you the tales about how I finished one of the wings before I got it in the sauce, some other day!

But yes,  this recipe for the Coconut Milk Herb Turkey is super easy because I used the marinade the wings baked in to make the sauce. Easy peasy! Also, here is a link to a newbie chicken wing recipe I made years back! Look at the growth!

That is it, for everything. It did take me two days because, honestly, I was trying to figure out what to do with it. Spicy Coconut Milk Herb Turkey with Rice - Adun
