Make the moqueca
Pat the shrimp dry with paper towel (remove the shells from the tails if desired). In a large pot, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the onions and garlic. Sauté, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant. Add the zucchini and tomato. Sauté, 1 to 2 min., until beginning to soften. Add the coconut milk, shrimp, ½ the spices and S&P; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer and cook, stirring frequently, 5 to 6 min., until the shrimp* are opaque and cooked through and the sauce has thickened.
