Number of Servings: 2


    2 cloves garlic, minced
    2 tablespoons minced shallots
    1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger root
    1 tablespoon and 1-1/2 teaspoons olive oil
    1/2 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
    3/4 cup tomato - peeled, seeded and chopped
    1 teaspoon curry powder
    1/4 teaspoon whole allspice berries
    1/4 cup chicken stock
    2 tablespoons brandy-based orange liqueur (Grand MarnierĀ®)
    1 tablespoon soy sauce
    1-1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
    1 teaspoon cornstarch
    1 tablespoon chile paste

    1/4 pound rotini pasta
    3/4 pound medium shrimp - peeled and deveined
    1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped


In a small bowl, combine garlic, shallots, ginger and oil.

In another small bowl, combine green pepper, tomato, curry powder, allspice, chicken stock, Grand Marnier, soy sauce, brown sugar, cornstarch, and chile paste. Cover and refrigerate both until ready to use.

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.

Heat a large saute pan over high. When hot, add garlic-oil mixture. Saute until garlic begins to sizzle but has not browned. Stir the tomato mixture, then pour into the saute pan. Bring to a rapid boil and cook until it begins to thicken, about 3 minutes.

Stir in the shrimp, and toss until they become pink, about 2 minutes. Immediately add the pasta. Stir and toss until well combined and pasta is heated through. Taste and adjust seasonings, especially salt.

Transfer to a heated platter and sprinkle on the cilantro. Serve at once.
