If using frozen, thaw, wash, and dry the Shrimp. Remove shells. Place the measure of Ghana Sauce in a glass bowl; add Shrimp and toss to coat well. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes. Heat the WOK; spray with a little oil; add the Shrimp and cook till hot; no more than 5 minutes. Serve at once with a black bean salad, like Texas Caviar (or Crowder Bean salsa).

Place all ingredients except the paprika in a small glass bowl. Stir well. Heat paprika in a 1-quart saucepan over medium heat 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually stir in the spice mixture until the paste is smooth. Heat about 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until hot. Cool for a dipping sauce. Cool for a marinade. Freeze for future use.

Alternative: Heat paprika, cumin and ground coriander in a dry pan over low to medium-low heat to "toast" and renew the dried spices. Remove from the heat and transfer to a 1-cup pyrex measure for further blending. Add the other spices to the pan. Stirring constantly, add the wine and make a paste.
