   * Pop frozen shrimp directly into the sauce, still frozen, and simmer
   on medium heat, covered, until they just turn opaque, 4-5 min
   depending on the size of the shrimp.
   
   Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the leeks
   and saute until softened, 8-10 min, stirring. Add the tomatoes and
   their juice, orange juice concentrate, lemon juice, dried mint (fresh
   mint is added later), chile paste, salt and pepper. Cook the sauce,
   uncovered, until slightly thickened, about 10 min, stirring
   occasionally. Stir in the coconut milk with the fresh mint and heat
   for 2 min. Add the shrimp, cover and cook until they just turn
   opaque, 2-4 min; the shrimp will continue to cook on standing, so
   avoid overcooking. Spoon the rice into individual bowls and ladle the
   shrimp and sauce on top.
