Anyone ever cook with lemon leaves?

I'm wanting to make the Spicy Shrimp Soup that Nick Kindelsperger posted in April, and the guy is having trouble finding lemongrass. However, I have a lemon tree with very fragrant leaves.

The recipe calls for 4 stalks of lemongrass. And yes, I always have lemons.

Any thoughts or suggestions?
