I don't think the peppers are essential. Do you know if there's a way to do satisfactory curries without (bell) peppers?

More generally, I think cooking clementine segments with just about any strong and hot spices (just getting them hot, not cooking them down) would produce pleasing results. I bet you could get something nice just with garlic, or maybe garlic and salt. Garlic and cinnamon? I was operating in the spirit of "what spices seem reasonable and interesting?".

I'm not trying to limit fat. A fairly high fat diet seems to be necessarily for my peace of mind. I get unhappy and jittery from two moderately low fat meals in a row (say, tofu stirfry with a normal amount of oil), and I think it's physiological, not neurotic.

I have nothing against cooking with chicken or duck fat, but it seems like an odd choice for this particular dish. Experimentation would be needed to whether it would make a difference-- it could be that the spices are so dominant that the type of fat wouldn't matter, or maybe shrimp and chicken fat would be more compatible than I think.

My notion about dairy, sugar, and wheat is that they're the foods that I'm dubious about in terms of my energy level and mood, so some checking should be done.

I was very interested to see someone on by flist mentioning that they'd gotten a comprehensive check on their food sensitivities, and found that chicken made them miserable.
