Shrimp and Grits

This is simply one of my favorite meals.  There is nothing quite like good bowl of shrimp and grits.
 I use stone ground grits and make them in milk with salt, pepper and butter.

 You just whisk the grits into the boiling milk and then let them simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 30 minutes.  I mixed in some shredded white cheddar too.

 I sauteed some tasso, onions, garlic and green and red peppers in some butter just until they began to soften.  Then I just scoot them to the side and throw in some shrimp and add a cup of chicken bouillon.  I added S&P, some Cajun seasoning and a shot of hot sauce.  Cook, tossing the shrimp until the shrimp turn pink.

 Place a big scoop of the grits in the middle of a bowl and surround them with some of the shrimp and sauce.  Sprinkle some sliced green onions over the top.
