Shrimp Skewers with Peanut Dipping Sauce


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. If using wooden skewers, soak 8 skewers in cold water for 10 minutes.
2. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray. When skewers have finished soaking, thread 4 shrimp onto each skewer, placing the skewer through each shrimp in two places, almost turning the shrimp into a C shape. Place skewers on baking sheet, and season with salt, pepper, and paprika if using. Cook until shrimp are pink and fully cooked, about 7 minutes.
3. While shrimp cook, in a food processor combine peanut butter, honey, vinegar, coconut milk, sesame oil, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, and cayenne if using. Puree until mixture is smooth, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Taste and add additional seasoning if desired. Alternatively, combine ingredients in a bowl and use an immersion blender to blend.
4. Arrange spinach if using on a platter. Place shrimp skewers atop spinach and serve peanut sauce in a bowl on the side.
