  1. In a large bowl, combine the Omsom starter, coconut milk, grated garlic and ginger, lime zest, juice of ½ a lime, and salt. 
  2. Add chicken thighs to the mixture and toss to fully coat. Cover and let marinate for at least 1 hour at room temperature or overnight in the fridge for even bolder flavor.
  3. For the salad, place thinly sliced scallions in an ice bath for 10 minutes to allow them to curl. Remove from ice bath, pat dry, then add scallions to a medium bowl with cucumbers, jalapenos and cilantro. 
  4. In a separate small bowl, whisk oil, rice wine vinegar, and honey to combine. Season with salt to taste. Set aside until ready to serve. 
  5. Prepare grill for medium-high heat, about 425 degrees. Thread 6-8 pieces of chicken onto each skewer. Grill, turning occasionally until chicken is fully cooked, 8-10 minutes. 
  6. Cut remaining ½ of lime into wedges. Toss the salad in dressing and serve immediately with chicken skewers (be careful: they’re hot!) and lime wedges. Enjoy!
