    Just an iphone pic, so no comment on the image itself.

    This was made all by me (I am a better cook than a photographer )

    Gourmet garlic grits with Gouda and Parm cheese, oven roasted shrimp and a light drizzle of etouffe sauce



    here is the recipe if interested (sorry for the US measurements)

    Makes four servings

    2 clove chopped garlic
    4 tbls of butter
    1 cup 1/2 & 1/2
    3 cup water
    dash of ground thyme
    Salt & pepper
    1 cup stone ground white grits
    4oz smoked Gouda
    4oz Parmesan cheese (I used plain old grated)

    Put butter and garlic in sauce pan, heat over low heat until butter melts and sautee garlic for a few seconds. Add thyme, salt and pepper, continue stirring, so not to burn. Add cream. Heat on low, make sure not to boil or burn the cream, stir until mixed well, nicely heated.

    Add the water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add grits, constantly stirring and reduce heat. Stir until it comes thick. Remove from heat and add gouda and parm cheese, stir until melted and creamy.

    Clean 1 pound shrimp (16-20) toss in olive oil, salt/pepper, garlic powder)

    Roast on cookie sheet for about 8 minutes at 375 deg

    The etouffe sauce was just a McCormicks packet, i didn't feel like messing with it. Follow instruction, boil a little longer to reduce. I only put a few spoon fulls on each serving.
