Homage to Lemongrass……

Found some lemongrass in the fridge that needed my immediate attention, well that is what I like to think……

My brain immediately decided that mixing some Lemongrass with shrimp, garlic, shallots and garlic would make for a delicious dinner!

So time to marinate my lovely shrimp in chopped lemongrass, garlic and shallots, also found a tad of cilantro so in it went and as well as a few thai chillies that I decided needed some attention too.

Tossed the shrimp in a bowl with all of the above, added some salt and pepper and a drizzle of my Meyer Lemon olive oil covered them with saran wrap and into the fridge they went until it was time for dinner.

Had a problem deciding if I should skewer them and cook them in my handy dandy countertop rotisserie or should I pan cook them or maybe grill them, oh so many choices……..

As you can see I went for the pan……….turned out to be a great choice!

As a side dish still on my lemongrass kick I decided to make some jasmine rice with a good grating of lemongrass and some coconut milk  to enhance the flavor of the shrimp.
