Europe: Lemongrass, Coriander. Olive oil? Salt. Beet sugar?

Puree everything from Africa, Asia and Europe except the olive oil, plus the
chili peppers from North America. Marinate the shrimp in half the puree for
an hour or two.in

Place the second half of the puree in a covered pan with the remaining
ingredients from the Americas. Simmer for 50 minutes.

Add the marinade and shrimp to the pan and cook on medium high until the
shrimp are done, some where around 6-8 minutes.uestio

Note the ingredients with a question mark after them are of debatable origin
and should be used both in the marinade and curry for the winter squash.

Serve with a cilantro garnish and watermelon and inexpensive and watery
pinot noir.
