Lemon grass

I'm growing lemon grass this year in our garden! This is the first year I'm growing it and I was curious what you all use lemon grass for? I know it can be cooked and it's supposed to smell really good. But that's really all I know about it.

Just the other night we made a wonderful lemongrass and garlic marinated shrimp. Cooked on the barbecue.

I grow it in containers and use it on our outdoor table to repel insects.  It helps somewhat.  We also use it in teas, curry, and stir fry dishes.

thanks! Have you tried it on chicken before? It sounds like it could be good in a chicken stir fry
