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.
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.
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!
