Lemongrass is used throughout Southeast Asian cuisine, but it’s usually hidden and blends in with other aromatics and seasonings. Here, however, it’s hard to ignore because the reedy stalks are used to skewer ground turkey in a riff on a traditional Cambodian recipe, and their citrusy perfume infuses the meat. With coconut rice and a carrot cucumber slaw on the side, this dish sings out with enticing, enrapturing aromas and flavors.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Shake coconut milk in can to get rid of any separation. Add ¾ cup coconut milk (we sent more), ¾ cup water, rice, and a pinch of salt to a medium pot. Bring to a boil, then lower heat, reduce to a simmer, and cover. Cook until rice is tender, 15-20 minutes.

Wash and dry all produce. Halve, peel, and dice onion. Set aside 3 TBSP in a medium bowl. Finely chop cilantro. Remove tough outer layers from lemongrass. Using the back of your knife, lightly smash lemongrass to release aromatics. Halve stalks lengthwise to create four long skewers.

In a large bowl, combine turkey, cooked onion, panko, and 1 tsp sriracha (use less to taste). Season with salt and pepper. Shape turkey mixture into four large meatballs, then press each meatball around the root ends of the lemongrass skewers to form kebabs. Place on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Bake in oven until cooked through, about 12 minutes.
