Dr. Gott's No Flour, No Sugar(TM) Diet
by Peter H. Gott

This quick shrimp dish is surprisingly satisfying. Serve it over small scoops of steamed brown rice that will soak up the spicy broth.
Serves 4.



    • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
    • 1-inch piece of ginger, peeled and diced
    • 2 to 4 jalapeno chilies (to taste), stemmed and seeded
    • 1/2 cup (packed) fresh cilantro leaves
    • Juice and zest of 1 lime
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 14-ounce can light, unsweetened coconut milk
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1/2 cup white wine
    • 2 pounds shrimp, peeled and deveined


In a food processor, combine the garlic, ginger, chilies, cilantro, lime zest, lime juice, salt, and olive oil. Process to a coarse puree.

Place wine and coconut milk in a large pot set over high heat. Stir in cilantro mixture, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-high, and simmer broth for about 5 minutes. Add shrimp, cover, and cook until shrimp are pink and cooked through, about 4 minutes. Serve shrimp immediately. Ladle into soup bowls along with the broth.
