My Take on Jamie Beecham's Shrimp & Grits...

I had to change a few things because I didnt have on hand some of what was in Jamies recipe, and I didnt want to run out to the store...

Im so bad at getting recipes down on paper or here because I just throw stuff in til it looks, smells and tastes right... so measuring is usually out and that's the importance of a recipe hehe... but...here goes...

How to Make My Shrimp & Polenta

Step-by-Step

  1. what I did was take about cup of white wine (plus 1/4 cup of water) and wondra to thicken it (the gravy recipe and directions are on the wondra box) You can also thicken it with flour if you dont have wondra.
  2. I sliced up some onions and lots of garlic... I started by cooking the bacon then I added the onions til they started to turn golden added some red pepper flakes and mrs dash table blend and parsley...
  3. I added the garlic and shrimp and cooked just until it was starting to turn pink and then I put in the wine/wondra mixture and just cooked til it thickened some...
  4. for the polenta I boiled the water with some granulated garlic and mrs dash table blend and when the water boiled I added the polenta as it started to thicken i added a few slices of swiss cheese cut up mixed it til it was melted and plated up our yummy dinner... (theres no butter in the polenta because I had to keep it low fat (and low sodium) for my mom who is on a heart healthy diet... but you can add if you want)
