    Hey Jude's Note:

    Crook's Corner is a restaurant in Chapel Hill, NC. This is a dish served at the restaurant and I found the recipe in the latest Southern Living magazine. I made this last night for dinner and my husband and I went nuts for it, it's the ultimate comfort food. Don't let the long list of ingredients throw you off, this goes together quickly and easily.

      I will be making this again soon because it's yummy! I used black instead of white pepper and Chalula instead of Tabasco. The two of us ate all the shrimp mostly because shrimp leftovers are not so good and I'm excited to have the leftover cheese grits in the morning. One tip would be to make sure and have all of your ingredients ready and measured out because of the timing required in this recipe. Thanks!

      I hadn't had any shrimp at all since the disaster in the gulf, but decided it was finally time to venture out into those murky waters once more.

      My son commented that the dish tasted "pro", and I must agree. Even so, or rather better yet, the dish was actually pretty quick to put together, but then again I also used quick grits (Albers) because that's what they had in the market.

      My subs: Sauteed 1/2 each of yellow onion, red pepper, and serrano before adding in the mushrooms; doubled the black pepper and added garlic salt to the shrimp seasoning which I tossed about 30 minutes in advance and allowed to marinade in the fridge; deglazed the pan with a moscato; skipped adding the broth to the shrimp, but did use just a little water to smooth things out. I liked sharkdoc01's idea of the rice flour and will try that next time. Served with collard greens.

      I would make half the grits but the entire recipe of shrimp for two. We had lots of the grits leftover.
      DH loved it and ate all of the shrimp.
