  1. Hello Sal,

    Um yummy, am I glad I found your site and especially this wonderful recipe. I have enjoyed shrimp since I grabbing the jumbo Guaymas shrimp every day while living in Guaymas Mexico.

    This recipe will fit quite nicely with my meal plans.

    I will be back again to read more. Your story is inspiring.

    • Hey Sophie….Hope all is well in your part of the world! Absolutely amazing how we can communicate today! In any regard Arrowroot powder is similar to corn starch. Used primarily in cooking & baking. It has no taste and is often used a thickener. Also, I might suggest you give a try tp Almond or Coconut milk….I do believe you will enjoy it!! Available in your local supermarket as well!

      Be well my friend!
