Cajun Shrimp with Cheese Grits
1 lb of shrimp ( Peeled and Deveined )
Your favorite seasoning for the shrimp... ( Tony Chachere's/Old Bay, etc )
2 cups of grits (quick are okay, my preference are white grits for this dish)
12 oz of your favorite cheese (not mozzarella or provolone) I used Habanero jack
In a sauce pan begin getting the water to a boil, in a large sauté pan begin melting some butter. season the shrimp and begin cooking them in the butter on med heat. Cook the grits. While both are cooking grate the cheese using a frozen Kitchen Aid box grater. Why frozen?? Glad you asked, the friction from grating the cheese causes heat and will make the cheese crumble but not grate. When the grits are done add the cheese stirring to incorporate. Cover till the shrimp are done. Place a big heaping pile of grits in the middle of plate and top with the shrimp. Serve with a sourdough bread.
