From the Test Kitchen

Lemongrass is an ancient herb from Southeast Asia used for a variety of purposes the world over. Interestingly, it repels most insects but attracts bees, and is known throughout the Philippines and Indonesia as a beekeeper’s friend. In this recipe, the bright citrusy notes of this exotic herb pair beautifully with shrimp and buckwheat soba noodles.
