Add to melted butter (in Africa, usually clarified butler) with paprika and chile powder. Add lime or lemon juice to taste (lime will be better for this one). Mix well. For chicken wings, or breasts, or fish, or prawns, marinate meat for 5-10 minutes, baste with sauce while cooking and spoon sauce over before serving.

Veal Stock

White Veal Stock

2 lbs veal shanks
3 lbs veal knucklebones
2 med onions, peeled and halved
2 med carrots, peeled and halved
1 celery stock
1 large bouquet garni
5 quarts cold water

Place all the ingreients except the water in a 15 quart stockpot. Make sure the vegetables and the bouquet garni are secured beneath bones or meat so they do not float to the top and interfere with skimming.
Cover the ingredients with the cold water. Add enough water to come about 4 inches above the top of the meat and bones.
Bring the stock slwowly to a simmer (this could tak at least 45 minutes). Skim off any froth, fat, and scum that floats to the surface. Cook the stock at a very low simmer for 6 hours more, skimming about evry 30 minutes.
Carefully strain the stock, first through a coarse chinois and then through a fine chinois. If a perfectly clear stock is needed, it can be strained a third time through cheesecloth.

Brown Veal Stcok

Roast all the ingredients for white veal stock, except the bouquet garni and water, in a 400°F (200°C) oven. Turn the meat, bones, and vegetables from time to time until they are evenly browned. Avoid burning any of the ingredients or letting the juices burn on the bottom of the roasting pan. Transfer the ingredients to a stockpot and add the bouquet garni. Deglaze the roasting pan with water. When all the juices have dissolved, add the deglazing liquid to the ingredients in the stockpot. Moisten, cook, and strain the stock as for white veal stock.
