Spicy Shrimp in Coconut Sauce

This is a Brazilian favorite from the state of Bahia. If you can't find dende oil, a Brazilian staple palm oil, you can substitute annato or peanut oil, but the flavor won't be quite as authentic. Still delicious, though, this dish is a flavorful stir fry addition to your menu.
