  1. Prepare Grits: Preheat oven to 350°. Brink milk, 1/4 cup butter, and 4 cups water to a boil in an ovenproof Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Whisk in grits; bring mixture to a boil, whisking occasionally. Cover and bake 45 minutes or until the grits are creamy, whisking every 15 minutes.

  4. Prepare Shrimp Sauce: Peel shrimp and devein. Sprinkle shrimp with 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper.
  5. Cook shrimp, in 2 batches, in 2 tablespoons hot oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat for 2 minutes on each sidem or just until the shrimp turns pink and forms a "C". Remove shrimp from the skillet.

Cook, stirring often, 5 to 7 minutes or until the tomatoes begin to break apart. Remove from heat. Stir in shrimp and 3 tablespoons butter. Serve over grits with chives.
