Shrimp Vindaloo

Although most people know this fiery stew as an Indian dish, it actually was created in the Portuguese-Indian colony of Goa. The name comes from two of the curry's key ingredients—vinho, which refers to wine vinegar, and alhos, which means garlic. The original Goan version was not as spicy, but as India adopted the dish as its own, the seasonings became hotter. Vindaloos are often made with meat, but this seafood version is pleasantly light. Serve over white or brown rice to cut the heat.
