Prepare the salmon skewers to your liking, place your favorite vegetable between the salmon pieces, today we have used red onion.
Next, take the marinade that you set aside and brush it over the skewers.
Then it’s time to cook them on the grill.
Serve the skewers with the peanut sauce and sprinkle them with some of the toasted peanuts. You can crush them by hand or with the help of a mortar.
Place the milk, soy sauce, Peanut Butter, and brown sugar into a food processor. Once all the ingredients are mixed together well, cook the sauce until it thickens a little.
This time we chose to pair some red onion with the salmon but you can use other vegetables such as peppers (red, green and / or yellow), mushrooms, tomatoes, or any of your favorite veggies.
