panNan, the gravy is supposed to be very thick. translated it means "smothered". glad you liked the taste

Chia, this had very good flavor. We found we wanted a bit more "gravy" for 2 lbs of shrimp. It was a little thick, so we added some more water, but we still didn't have enough gravy for our taste. I will double that part of the recipe next time. Thanks for sharing this one.
