Soak skewers in cold water for 1 to 2 hours before grilling.
Cut meat into 3/4 inch pieces.
Place in a medium sized bowl.
In a food processor or blender whirl together shallots, garlic, coconut milk, lemon juice, sugar, coriander, salt, cumin and turmeric to form a smooth paste.
Combine with meat and marinate, covered in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours.
Thread onto skewers without crowding, about 4 pieces per skewer.
Grill or broil until crisp and browned, but still juicy, about 3 to 6 minutes, turning to cook evenly.

“I made this last night for dinnerand everyone loved it!The marinade ingredients were all in perfect proportion; I thought the garlic might overpower the delicate and sweet taste of the coconut milk, but it didn’t.I had never made a marinade before using coconut milk so I’m really glad I tried this recipe because it’s fantastic.Thanks for posting!”
