  3. Heat 1 tsp olive/coconut oil in a sauté pan over medium heat.
  4. Add your onions, garlic, ginger, lime juice, curry, salt, pepper and cayenne, allow to cook down until onions begin to soften and your spices are fragrant, about 8 minutes.
  5. Add your chopped tomatoes, stock, coconut milk and pumpkin puree, stir well and allow to simmer for another 8 minutes.
  6. Add your shrimp into the sauce and cover with a lid, allow them to cook for 5 minutes or so until opaque, pink and cooked through.
