Grilled Tomato Coconut BBQ Sauce

Meat, meet sauce. Inspired by Brazil’s vibrant sauces, this BBQ sauce is the perfect partner for grilled skewered meats, ribs, chicken, chops, and more. Crushed red pepper and fresh jalapeño bring serious heat, with a punch of added flavor from ground ginger and garlic. Creamy coconut milk cools it off. See you at the grill.
