Shrimp skewers are a simple treat that have become a Vietnamese family standard. There are many different variations, however, which have evolved through the generations of each family. Here’s my family’s version. The shrimp paste is irresistible when wrapped in lettuce and herbs and dipped into nuoc cham. The sugarcane skewers are deliciously flavored by the shrimp and seasonings and are great for chomping after you’ve consumed the shrimp paste.
