Barbecued Shrimp on Lemongrass

the aromas in the food markets in Thailand are intoxicating. Such heedy fragrances likes Lemongrass and Kaffir limes,plus the delicious aroma of grilling. This is a recipe from Vatcharin Bhumichitir,one of my all time favorite food writers and restaurant owners. Plus I just love how quickly this all comes together.

11/4 lbs medium-size raw shrimp,peeled and deveined

4 garlic cloves,crushed

4 scallions,chopped

2 teaspoons sugar

2 teaspoons fish sauce

2 teaspoons cornstarch

1 strip of bacon ,finely chopped

10 fresh lemon grass stalks,about 51/2 inches long

Plum sauce,for serving

Put the shrimp,garlic,scallions,sugar,fish sauce,cornstarch and bacon in a food processor and blend until fine and pasty. with lightly oiled hands,mold level tablespoons of the shrimp mixture around the center of each lemongrass stalk.

Heat a barbecue ,grill pan or broiler until hot and cook the stalks until the shrimp mixture is cooked through,turning occasionally during cooking. Serve with plum sauce.
