Lemongrass Shrimp recipe(s)?

I searched the recipes section and didn't find a recipe for Lemongrass Shrimp. It seems like a natural pairing. Perhaps a nice marinade with the lemongrass then perhaps grilling the shrimp and serving with rice or noodles? Going to have snow pea tips with garlic on the side. Thanks in advance!

Sounds lovely! Maybe add some lime juice and sesame oil to the marinade.

I've done this:

1lb shrimp, shells off deveined
3 stalks lemongrass, trimmed, pounded a bit, sliced thin
2 cloves garlic crushed
1 shallot thinly sliced if I have one
2-3tbs fish sauce
Juice of 1/2 lime or so
Some heat -- dried chilis or cayenne, to taste
A few drops sesame oil.
Grated ginger too, maybe

Marinate 2hrs or so, grill on skewers, serve over rice or noodles. Better yet serve as part of Vietnamese vermicelli-type salad (bun).

I've done this too using sugar cane skewers, which turned out fantastic. I bought a piece of sugar cane and whittled it into skewers.
