    Raquel Grinnell's Note:

    This is a combination of several recipes; I must have a creamy sauce with my shrimp and grits and created this version here.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a small bowl, combine Cajun seasoning, paprika, olive oil and pepper. Add shrimp and toss until well-combined; set aside.
    2. 2
      Bring medium saucepan to boil with 2 cups chicken broth and butter. While whisking, gradually add grits. Cook about 5 minutes, whisking often. Stir in cream and cheese; continue cooking and whisking until creamy, about 2 to 3 minutes. Set aside.
    3. 3
      Melt butter in a large skillet. Add garlic and scallions and cook, stirring for one minute. Add shrimp and cook one-and-a-half minutes per side, until shrimp are opaque. Transfer shrimp with slotted spoon to a bowl and set aside, keeping warm.
    4. 4
      Stir flour and paprika into remaining butter in the skillet the shrimp was cooked inches Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is thickened and medium-brown like peanut butter in color, 5 to 10 minutes. Whisk in combined wine, chicken stock and cream; let cook, whisking constantly, for 2 minutes. Whisk in Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce and remove from the heat. Taste and adjust seasonings to your liking.
    5. 5
      To serve, divide grits evenly among six plates. Stir shrimp into sauce and ladle over grits, sprinkling with scallions.
