Cambodian Shrimp Skewers

This Month's Film: Lord Jim
Cuisine: Cambodian

This recipe was so tasty that I'm going to add it to my permanent collection to enjoy on a regular basis. The reicpe is deceptively simple and easy, needing nothing more than a pound of shrimp, some scallions, garlic, salt and pepper, and a little cornstarch to hold it all together. After shaping the shrimp paste on bamboo skewers, I grilled them to a golden brown on my electric grill. The finished appetizers were so tasty that they needed no condiment, and disappeared faster than you can say 'bamboo'.

The recipe will be posted at the end of the month along with my 'Lord Jim' film review.
