Ginataang Shrimp with Pumpkin and Snow Peas

Saute garlic, ginger and white onions in olive oil for 2min over med heat (No. 3 in electric gas stoves).  Add shelled shrimps and cover for about 1min. Season with sea salt and pepper. Pour in the coconut milk (canned coco milk is available from Asian shops).  No need to add water because the coco milk is enough as base.  Put in next the pumpkin slices, cover and simmer for 5min (or until about the pumpkin 'smells' which means it's already cooked). Lastly, add the snow peas (chicharo) but simmer now for only 1min to keep it crispy. Remove immediately from heat to not overcook the pumpkin.C'mon, let's eat!
