How to Make It

Step 1    

In a food processor, combine the garlic, chiles, lemongrass, shallot and ginger and process to a paste. Scrape the paste into a bowl and stir in the fish sauce, sugar, lime juice, cilantro, coriander and pepper.

Step 2    

Light a grill. Coat the shrimp with 2/3 cup of the marinade and let sit for 15 minutes. Thread the shrimp onto skewers and cook over a hot fire for about 2 minutes per side, using the remaining marinade for basting.

Chef's Notes

Fish sauce, which is made from pickled anchovies, is available at Asian markets and specialty shops. In a pinch, you could substitute soy sauce.
