From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. A Panama Canal specialty using fresh shrimp, but any fish or seafood can be used with this sauce. The word Panama means "abundance of fish", such as jumbo shrimp, lobster, calamari, crab, octopus, red snapper, and sea bass. This is traditionally served with cooked rice or cooked lentils, beans, etc.

Shell and devein the shrimp, set the shrimp aside. In a saucepan, heat the water with the shells and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer and cook several minutes. Strain and discard the shells, reserving 1 cup of the stock. In meantime, make the sauce using a food processor or a blender to puree the pumpkin seeds and then add the tomatoes, onion, garlic, pimientos, chili powder, coriander and coriander seeds, sugar, and pepper.
