    Rinshinomori's Note:

    Lemongrass is used as skewers in this recipe, but it's optional and you can certainly use bamboo sticks instead. The recipe is ideal for outdoor grill, indoor grill, or under the broiler and makes 1 skewer with 3 shrimp per person as appetizer for 4 servings. If you want to make this as main dish, make 2-3 skewers per person.
