Combine all the ingredients, except the shrimp and lemon grass, in a glass bowl. Add the shrimp. Stir to combine and refrigerate for 1 hour. Preheat the grill to medium-high. Using a sharp knife, cut points on the ends of each lemon grass stalk. Skewer each shrimp (5 per lemon grass stalk) by running the lemon grass stalk from the tail to the head so that each shrimp is in a letter "U" position. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper. Grill until the shrimp have turned pink and are cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Serve with your favorite risotto.
