Add red pepper and chayote and cook 5 minutes. Add about 2/3 of the coconut milk and simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes to bring flavors together. Add shrimp back to skillet along with scallions, cilantro leaves and lime juice. Taste and adjust seasoning adding more pepper if necessary, adding more coconut milk if desired for a soupier consistency. Serve over rice.
