Best ever lemongrass recipes

The unique flavour of lemongrass adds a fragrant touch to Asian dishes. We've pulled together a collection of our favourite South East Asian dishes using lemongrass, including Thai-style mussels, Vietnamese lemongrass beef platter and BBQ tamarind salmon with lemongrass, chilli and ginger.

Thai carrot and lemongrass soup

Thai cuisine uses fragrant flavours to create warming and comforting dishes. Our thai carrot and lemongrass soup is an easy vegetarian option with plenty of zing from the lemongrass and ginger, plus the coconut milk makes the soup really creamy.

Asian chicken burgers with pickled red cabbage

These Asian-inspired chicken burgers make a great, healthier alternative to the usual beef. Pickled red cabbage on the side adds an extra kick. Serve on round lettuce leaves instead of buns.


Thai-style mussels

This has to be our best, most moreish mussel recipe. A deceptively simple one-pot-meal, succulent mussels are combined with red and green chillies, lemongrass and ginger. You won’t be able to get enough of them.


Vietnamese lemongrass beef platter

Tender and fragrant marinated beef is barbecued or grilled and served with rice noodles and a chilli lime dipping sauce. Great as an appetiser or light main course.


Hot-and-sour fish soup

This quick and easy Asian-inspired hot-and-sour fish soup is full of big flavours like ginger, chilli and lemongrass but is ready in just 20 minutes. 


Lemongrass pork skewers with green bean salad

Wrap pork mince around lemongrass skewers before cooking for serving in lettuce leaf cups. Make an easy salad with finely chopped green beans to serve on top.


BBQ tamarind salmon with lemongrass, chilli and ginger

Sour tamarind counters salmon’s rich, oily flavour and gives this Thai-inspired dish a real wow factor. Find tamarind purée in the spice or Asian section of most major supermarkets.


Blackcurrant and lemongrass cordial

Rather than overpowering the fruit, lemongrass adds a subtle citrus note to this intense drink. Serve the cordial diluted over plenty of ice or use to make a summery blackcurrant mojito cocktail.
