Cooking Tip Icon

Cooking Tip: Fresh lemongrass can be hard to find and a bit of a pain to chop. A better way around this is to look for frozen chopped lemongrass in the freezer section of Asian markets. This is a great option to keep on hand to jazz up proteins like chicken, pork, and fish. Dehydrated lemongrass is also available in some spice aisles and on Amazon.com. 

Keep it Healthy Icon

Keep it Healthy: Consider mixing the shrimp and pea salad together and chill; bring as a nutritious work lunch or even to a potluck.

Tip Icon

Tip: Mint tends to discolor quickly when puréed or chopped, although the taste remains exactly the same.
