How to make it

  • Grits:
  • Place a 3 quart pot over medium-high heat.
  • Add the milk and cream
  • Slowly whisk in the cornmeal. When the grits begin to bubble, turn the heat down to medium low and simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring frequently (preferrably with wooden spoon)
  • Remove from heat and stir in the butter (thin it out with a little extra cream)
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste
  • For the shrimp:
  • Place a deep skillet over medum heat and coat with the olive oil. Add the onion and garlic and saute for 2 minutes (until soft)
  • Add the sausage and cook. Stire until there is a good amount of fat in the pan (sausage will be brown)
  • Sprinkle in the flour and stir with a wooden spoon to create the roux
  • Slowly pour in the chicken stock (keep stirring to avoid lumps)
  • Toss in the bay leaves
  • When the liquid comes to a simmer, add the shrimp.
  • Poach the shrimp for 2-3 minutes, until they are firm and pink and the gravy is smooth and thick.
  • Add cayenne, tabasco and lemon juice
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste; stir in parsley and green onions
  • Spoon the grits into a serving bowl. Top with the shrimp mixture and serve immediately.

    It not only sounds awesome, it tastes awesome! I fixed this tonight and it was delicious. I had some leftover, so tomorrow I'm taking it to work for lunch. Got to say, the shrimp and sausage would also go well over rice. May try it that way next time - just for kicks.

    Thanks for the upload. Great recipe.
