12 chicken wings-tips removed
5 bay leaves-crumbled into bits
1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper

Place the chicken wings in boiling water for 10 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Using a mortar or pestle, grind the bay leaf, cayenne pepper, coriander, cumin, garlic, mustard, paprika, thyme and salt for about 10 minutes. Add the brandy, lemon and lime juices to the herbs mixture and stir into a paste.
