Lemongrass Shrimp

  • 1 lb shrimp
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 stalk lemongrass minced


  • 1 package vermicelli noodles
  • 1 carrot julienned
  • 20 mint leaves
  • 1 head lettuce
  • 1 cucumber julienned


  • First prep your toppings. Boil your vermicelli noodles, slice your vegetables, and make your Vietnamese dipping sauce. Set everything aside.
  • Add vegetable oil to a pan over medium high heat. Add in the garlic, brown sugar, fish sauce, and lemongrass. Stir for 10-15 seconds. Add in the shrimp and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until the center is opaque and the outside is orange. Season with pepper to taste. Set aside.
  • Get out 4 medium bowls. Add vermicelli noodles, carrots, mint leaves, lettuce, and cucumbers to a bowl. If you would like a little less or more of an ingredient, feel free to make adjustments! Add the shrimp on top and drizzle with the dipping sauce.
