      Pour all liquid ingredients into a large pot and bring to a boil.

      Add all spices. Boil for 8-10 minutes then add the shrimp. Boil for 15 minutes then add all of the other ingredients.

      Boil for 3-5 minutes then turn to low heat for 10 minutes. Turn down to simmer for 20-30 minutes. Serve over white or brown rice.

      Excellent with a good fruit salad and lots of hot, buttered French bread!
