  • I made this with a Thai spice blend (couldn't find lemongrass) and omitted lime leaves (couldn't find them, either). It was incredible! - 3/17/10

    Lime leaves and lemongrass stalks can usually be found at specialty markets (ie if you have an international district or whole foods type store, you can usually at least find the lemongrass - sometimes in a tube). Glad you enjoyed!
