What I Cooked Today… Lemon Grass Skewered Shrimp

Serves 4

  1. 2 lemon grass skewers
  2. ½ pound large shrimp (make it easy and buy peeled)
  3. 1 bunch chopped cilantro
  4. 1 bunch chopped garlic
  5. ¼ cup oil
  6. zest from 1 lemon
  7. 2 tsp red chili flakes
  8. 2 cloves garlic minced


Mix together garlic, chili flakes, lemon zest, chopped cilantro and parsley, and shrimp. Let sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Cut the lemon grass into pieces a little larger than your shrimp, and skewer your shrimp. Either grill the shrimp or broil them in an oven with a little bit of oil. Top with additional parsley and squeeze a little lemon juice on top. Delicious!

Happy Cooking!
