Rita, we loved these kabobs! They were easy to prepare and extremely flavorful! I made no modifications to your ingredients: I used 2 thai dragon peppers that I crushed with a mortar and pestle. I, too, used minced lemongrass from a jar. I used fish sauce, and cilantro instead of basil, as that is what I had on hand. The citrus-y tang of the lime really comes through in the heated marinade served over the kabobs. The only thing I did not do is soak the skewers, as we never do. We served the tuna over basmati rice. Thanks for this keeper!
