    A. Deume's Note:

    I made this recipe after reading a number of shrimp & grits recipes, and not finding one that incorporated all the flavors I wanted, made my own. It turned out quite nicely, so I'm sharing. The sauce is light in terms of volume, rather than being like a soup, and has a lot of different flavors packed into it.

      Used canned San Marzano tomatoes (2 or 3 with some of the sauce in the can), folded a little Gouda into the grits at the end, one shallot 'toe' instead of onion or green onion. Nice!!

      Easy enough to make for breakfast (had the shrimp peeled & deveined in the fridge). Used about 3 T butter instead of the 1/2 cup & added cream to grits for creaminess. Used 8 pieces of bacon & the resultant fat (about 3 T instead of the olive oil - it is breakfast! LOL). Otherwise made as directed using 1/4 t white pepper, 1/4 t black pepper, 1/2 t cayenne pepper & the paprika. Whoooeee! It was fantastic & on the table in under 20 minutes!

      Wonderful flavor combination. I peeled and seeded the tomato before dicing. Simmered the sauce uncovered after adding the 1/4 cup cream til the cream was reduced and sauce thickened. Thanks for sharing.
