Crawfish smothered grits

Yield: 8 servings

Measure Ingredient
1.00 pounds peeled crawfish tails
1 salt; to taste
1 cayenne pepper; to taste
2.00 tablespoon olive oil
1.00 cup chopped onions
1.00 tablespoon chopped garlic
2.00 cup beef stock
3.00 cup half-and-half
1½ cup quick-cooking white grits
½ cup freshly-grated parmigiano-reggiano; cheese

In a mixing bowl, toss the crawfish tails with salt and cayenne. In a 3-quart saucepan, over medium heat, add the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the onions. Season the onions with salt and cayenne.

Saute for 2 minutes, or until the onions are soft. Add the crawfish and garlic. Continue to cook for 2 minutes. Add the stock and half-and-half to the pan. Season with salt and cayenne. Bring the liquid to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 2 minutes. Add the grits and stir constantly until they are very tender, about 10 minutes. Add the cheese and stir to mix and melt it.

Serve warm. This recipe yields 8 to 10 servings.
