  5. Meanwhile, simmer the stock, lemon grass, and reserved shrimp shells in a large pot over moderate heat for 15 minutes.
  6. Add the hot chile and simmer for 5 minutes.
  7. Strain, discard the solids, and return the stock to the pot.
  8. Immediately before serving, bring the stock to a simmer and add the shrimp, lime juice, salt, and pepper and cook just until the shrimp are firm and opaque, about 2 minutes.
