I am lucky that I live in Orange County because I can pretty much get all the ingredients I want at the many ethnic food stores here. Whenever I want to cook Chinese, there is 99 Ranch Market. When I am in the mood for Japanese food, I go to Mitsuwa or Marukai. And when I need ingredients for Malaysian, Thai, or Vietnamese, I head to Little Saigon.

Whenever I shop at Little Saigon, I tend to go hog wild on the spices and aromatics—lemongrass, turmeric, galangal, basil, fresh Thai chilies, etc. Things are cheaper, fresher at Little Saigon, so I always buy more than what I need. Case-in-point: I have 10 stalks of lemongrass in my fridge now because it was on sale! When life gives me lemongrass, I make lemongrass chicken or lemongrass shrimp, like what I have here.

Lemongrass Shrimp

This lemongrass shrimp is aromatic, mouthwatering, and extremely tasty with steamed rice, plus it’s super easy to cook (it took me only 15 minutes). My designer and developer R at Zedesino recently told me that he loves shrimp, so I wanted to dedicate this lemongrass shrimp recipe to him so he can make the dish. I also wanted to thank him for making the new design of Rasa Malaysia so gorgeous looking. He is awesome!

    4 months ago before I left my vacation home in Nevada, I threw in the left over fresh lemon grass, cilantro, shallots and asparagus + sweet basil seeds. To my surprise, they grown so well and lots of basil leaves, except the cilantro. The basil was like 2.5 feet high in spite of no one being there except the sun and the water dripping. It’s not only convenient when you need them and it’s organic too!

    Made this for dinner last night. It was super delicious and fast to make! I didn’t have bird eye chilies, so I added cayenne instead. Thanks for sharing!
