  • 3 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1 pound unpeeled medium shrimp
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

  1. In a large stock pot, heat the oil over moderate heat. Cook the shrimp stirring frequently. Season with 1 teaspoon of the salt and cooking, until the shrimp are pink and opaque, about 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon. Peel shrimp when they are cool enough to handle and set aside.
  2. Add the onion, cayenne, paprika, cumin, and another teaspoon of the salt to the stock pot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the dash of hot sauce, squash, cabbage, potatoes, corn, and stock to the pot. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, until the potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.
  3. Add the coconut milk and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in the peeled shrimp, the remaining teaspoon of salt, and the peas, if using. Cook until the shrimp are just heated through, about 2 minutes.
