   This is from Narsai David, a cosmopolitan Lebanese restauranteur, food
   writer and all-around nice guy from the Bay Area.
   Clean, peel and devein the shrimp.  Set aside.
   To make the sauce, prepare the pumpkin seeds first.  If they are
   unroasted, put them in a heavy skillet with out oil or butter and
   toast them for a few minutes until they are crackly but not browned.
   Put them in a food processor or blender and reduce to a fine powder.
   Add the onion, garlic, cilantro, tomato, chiles, bell pepper,
   coriander seeds, and salt and pepper.  Puree until smooth.
   Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a skillet, add the pureed
   pumpkin seed mixture, and cook gently for a few minutes, stirring
   from time to time, until it is well blended.  If too thick, stir in a
   little clam juice; if too thin, continue to cook until it is reduced
   to the desired consistency.
   Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet, add the
   shrimp, and saute over moderate heat until just beginning to turn
   pink. Using a slotted spoon, remove from the pan to a heated platter.
   Add the sauce to the pan.  Add the lemon juice and adjust the
   seasoning. Return the shrimp to the pan, turning to coat them with
   the sauce.  Serve immediately.
   Serves 6.
