  1. 1

    Trim each lemongrass stalk to about 10cm long, then slice each stalk in half lengthwise to create 8 x 10cm skewers.

  2. 2

    To make the marinade, combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Check for seasoning.

  3. 3

    Cut salmon into 24 equal-sized cubes and add to the marinade. Toss well to combine and cover with plastic wrap. Set aside for 30 minutes.

  4. 4

    Thread three pieces of salmon onto each piece of lemongrass to make 8 skewers.

  5. 5

    Heat an oiled barbecue or char-grill plate to medium-high and cook skewers for about a minute on each of the 4 sides, until nicely charred.

  6. 6

    Pile onto a platter and nestle the cucumber alongside the skewers. Then scatter fresh mint and crispy shallots over the top and serve with lime wedges on the side.
