  • 1 14-ounce can full-fat or light coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoons chili garlic sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice from 1 lime
  • pounds large shrimp peeled, deveined, tails on
  • Vegetable oil
  • ½ cup coconut flakes toasted


  • Combine the coconut milk, chili garlic sauce, and lime juice in a mixing bowl. Pour about ⅓ of the marinade into a large food storage bag. Close the bag and shake to mix. Add the shrimp, toss well to coat, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Prepare the grill for direct heat and preheat to medium-high.
  • While the shrimp marinates, pour the remaining marinade into a saucepan and cook on the grill until thickened and reduced by half. Let cool and pour into a small serving bowl.
  • Remove the shrimp from the bag and discard the marinade. Thread the shrimp onto 6-8 skewers. (Two-prong metal skewers work best, but you can use what you have. If using wooden skewers, soak in water for 30 minutes before using.)
  • Brush the grill grates with oil and cook the shrimp 3 minutes per side with the lid closed. Place the shrimp on a platter, top with the coconut, and serve with the sauce.
