DIRECTIONS

  • Parmesan Grits:
  • Bring milk and broth to a boil.
  • (WATCH THIS VERY CAREFULLY BECAUSE THE MILK WILL OVERFLOW IF IT GETS TOO HOT).
  • Add grits and cook according to package directions.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the cheese and the Tabasco.
  • (If you prefer firmer grits: Add to the above 1 cup milk, and 2 large beaten eggs; then bake for at 350 for 30 minutes).
  • Shrimp:
  • Heat large skillet until very hot, add olive oil.
  • When oil is thoroughly heated, toss in shrimp to cover bottom of pan.
  • Before stirring, season with salt and pepper (this will season shrimp in particular, but the rest of the dish as well).
  • Stir until shrimp begin to turn pink all over (let pan return original hot temperature).
  • Stir in minced garlic and mushrooms.
  • Add lemon juice and wine, stir for 30 seconds or until everything is well coated.
  • Toss in sliced scallions and stir for about 20 seconds.
  • Serve over grits!
