Coconut Tempeh Skewers with Sweet Chili Dipping Sauce

These skewers are quick to make and would be great finger food or passed appetizers. Coconut is not only in the coating but coconut milk is also utilized in the dredge.

Panko and coconut breaded tempeh skewers served with a cooling, sweet chili dipping sauce.
