Shrimp Curry
------------
 2      lbs    medium shrimp -- 18 to 24 shrimp peeled, and set aside
   1/4  cup    olive oil
 2      tbls   minced garlic
   1/2  cup    water chestnuts, sliced, rinsed, and drained on paper towel
 1      can    unsweetened coconut milk
 1      cup    clam juice
   1/2  teas   crushed red pepper flakes
   1/2  cup    green onion -- minced
 2             green onions, cut in thin slices on a diagonal
 4      tbls   lime juice
 1 1/2  teas   Garam Masala Curry Paste
 2      tbls   arrowroot mixed with 3 tbsp. water
   1/4  cup    chopped fresh cilantro

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat, until it is hot
but not smoking. Add shrimp, and saute for 3 minutes, moving the pan
continuously to avoid sticking or burning. With a slotted spoon, remove
cooked shrimp and set aside. Turn heat down to medium low and add garlic,
chestnuts, coconut milk, fish sauce, pepper flakes, minced onion, lime
juice, and curry mix. Simmer for 6-8 minutes. Add arrowroot paste and
simmer for 5 more minutes, until mixture thickens. Put shrimp back into the
sauce along with cilantro and half the sliced green onion. Simmer for 3
more minutes. Transfer to a heated serving bowl and garnish with remaining
sliced green onion. Yield: 5 servings.
