Make peanut sauce

– Heat oil in a small saucepan. Add the onion and cook, stirring for about 2-3 minutes, until slightly golden, then add the chopped garlic and red pepper; Cook until the onion is golden brown, but remember not to let the garlic turn brown, it will be bitter.

– Add lemon juice and soy sauce to the onion mixture; Stir until the spices are evenly combined. Next, melt the peanut butter and brown sugar on the stove. Then let it cool until it reaches room temperature.

– Beat coconut milk until smooth. Then, measure the required amount and pour in the peanut sauce. Stir well until the sauce is a bit thick.

– Preheat the oven to bake with oil. Transfer shrimp from the pan to the baking rack. Rotate the skewers evenly in the sauce. Bake them for 2-3 minutes until they turn pink. Occasionally brush the sauce over the shrimp during the baking process. Continue grilling until shrimp are pink on the other side, about 2-3 minutes more.

– Place the barbecue on a plate, add a small bowl of peanut sauce attached. Squeezing some lemon juice over shrimp is also a great way to enjoy this dish.
