    FlemishMinx's Note:

    This is a dish with layered flavors; a complex taste yet so easy to prepare. I use a light Belgian beer (Hoegaarden) for this one but any light (not necessarily LITE) beer should do (if I was in the US, I might try Corona?). I like to serve these with sesame noodles on the side. Preparation time DOES include 30 minutes marination.

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a bowl large enough to hold the shrimp, mix the garlic, sugar, fish sauce and lime zest.
    2. 2
      Peel away and discard the tough outer layers of the lemongrass stalks, till you reach the tender centers; finely mince these and add to the marinade.
    3. 3
      Add shrimp, mix well and allow to stand 30 minutes, refrigerated.
    4. 4
      When ready to cook, heat the oil in a wok; when smoking add the shrimps with marinade and cook until they are just pink on both sides (2-3 minutes, stirring all the while.
    5. 5
      Add the beer, cover and "steam" on a high heat for 6-8 minutes (depending on the size of your shrimp).
    6. 6
      You probably will have a quantity of liquid remaining in the wok, so remove the shrimps with a slotted spoon.
    7. 7
      Serve immediately with lemon or lime halves if desired.

      In my opinion all healthy food is expensive, and this is not only healthy, but very simple to prepare. I found everything I needed and trust me, I live in "the hicks". I made this for my family, including my four and six year old, over a bed of rice, and there was nothing left. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

      This ending up being an expensive recipe. If you don't have lemongrass, fish oil, and Belgium beer it's rather pricey to buy these ingredients. I didn't think the flavor matched the time and money I spent.

      I used extra large shrimp in this fresh tasting dish. I stirred the shrimp for barely 1 minute then steamed it with Miller lite beer for 5 minutes which left no beer taste. Removed the shrimp and cooked down the liquid to serve with the shrimp. Or you can save the liquid to spoon over rice. I enjoyed the texture and freshness of the lemongrass! Very Good and Very Easy!
