We love food on skewers. The taste of sweet tender meat char grilled to perfection and still very juicy in center. But, what holds us back is quite tedious to do it at home. We came up with this super easy grilled shrimp lemongrass skewers that you can be replicate at home in a jiffy using Knife brand Thai Dipping sauce. The spicy sour sweet flavour of the sauce enhances the sweetness of the prawn meat. The lemongrass skewers imparts its subtle fragrance to another level. Serve it with a small bowl of the Thai Dipping sauce. Delish to the max!

This assam fish head is an Indian curry with Chinese influence that is popular both in Singapore and Malaysia. The curry uses Indian spices but made lighter and sourish with the addition of tamarind paste and pineapple. Fresh herbs like laksa leaves and torch ginger flower heightens the ‘assam’ flavour. The curry is light, spicy sour that goes well with a hot bowl of steaming rice. A little tip, you can make extra portion of the sambal and freeze. It keeps well in the freezer for 3 months. This reduces the prepping time for the next Assam Fish Head meal.
