Cambodian Lemongrass Shrimp

During my childbirth confinement, I missed eating seafood so much, especially my favorite shrimp. So, there was no surprise that as soon as the confinement ended, I headed straight to my favorite seafood restaurant and had a feast of seafood meal. I have also resumed cooking, albeit in a small way as I am adjusting to motherhood and my new lifestyle. Needless to say, seafood has been a big part of my diet lately. It’s great to finally return to a normal diet, but time is scarce these days as I dedicate most of my time to my baby, so cooking elaborately and everything-from-scratch will have to take a back seat for the time being…

I think you might remember my Indonesian mie goreng (fried noodles) post not too long ago. After trying out World Foods mie goreng instant paste, I like their products so much that I’ve decided to work with them on a couple of new recipes.

I made this shrimp dish with World Foods Indochina Cambodian Pineapple Lemon Grass Stir-Fry Sauce.  As it’s an instant sauce, I dressed things up a bit—some coconut milk, bird’s eye chilies, and basil leaves to complete the taste. The dish took about 30 minutes to make and fit my tight schedules perfectly, and the big plus is that the end result is quite authentic and satisfying.

    Wow, this dish looks good. Can I use regular white shrimp?

  2. Amy says:

    By the way, where can I get this product? I love Asian food but too scared to make everything from scratch.

  3. Bee, this looks absolutely delicious! And simple to make:) The basil leaves give the dish a nice touch.

    Also, glad to hear that you’re finally over the confinement period. Must be a worthwhile challenge & I bet normal food cannot taste any better.

    I tested this recipe. It’s really delicious, but as my stomach handles sea food badly I made this one with chicken. It turned out really delicious too. Time to present girlfriend some asian flavors out of the unusual.

    Bee- I missed this dish on my birthday-October 25th! And I’ve been in an Asian dish, several week binge- can’t get enough of Asian flavors.

    I think I’ll try a local Sacramento artisan lemon grass stir fry sauce from Mai Pham (Lemon Grass Restaurant). Check out a discussion of Mai and her sauces on my post here: I think Mai’s sauce will work great with your Lemon Grass Shrimp!

    Sounds yummy! I’m going to try this weekend.

    What is the serving size 4, 6, 8?? It helps to know how many servings each recipe makes.

  21. sdumler says:

    I made this, but couldn’t find the stir fry sauce. Instead, I found a “spicy pineapple sauce” and added my own crushed lemongrass. OMG. This is amazing! Thanks!!!
