This sauce gives wings a bold flavor (and color!), along with a touch of heat that will have you reaching for more.

- 2 shallots, chopped
- 1 (1-inch) piece of ginger, peeled and minced
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 3 tablespoons yellow curry paste
- 1 (13.5-ounce) can coconut milk

To a large pan over medium heat, add the oil and warm. Add the shallots, ginger, and garlic and sauté until soft. Season with salt and add the curry paste, coconut milk, and curry powder.
