Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat until hot and add the oil. Stir in the chopped garlic and diced onion and cook until aromatic, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Stir in the shrimp, then add the beer, Sazon, butter, a few dashes of hot sauce (or to taste), lemon juice and coconut milk. Poach the shrimp in sauce, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp are cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes. Taste and season with a pinch of salt, or as desired. Divide the shrimp and sauce in two wide, shallow bowls, and sprinkle over the cilantro. Serve immediately.
