This is a super simple meal that has wonderful flavour and can either be made for a main meal or as a light meal depending on the amount of rice cooked. As we are trying not to eat too many carbs at the moment and this was for a main meal I served ours with less rice and some sauced bok choy which paired really well. As you can only buy lemon grass in such large quantities here I have found a brand that is already made into a paste. I used to always use fresh but ended up throwing half of it away before I could use it, so I asked at my local Asian grocery store once what she had and she told me about the paste. It tastes just as good but to me it is more concentrated than fresh so I used 1 Teaspoon in this recipe, I would use 1 Tablespoon if using fresh.
