FOR THE GRITS
FOR THE SHRIMP
FOR THE MUSHROOMS
To cook the grits, bring the cream to a boil in a large saucepan. Add the butter, jalapeno pepper, chopped garlic, salt and Vegetable Magic and grits. Cook the grits over a medium flame for about 1 hour. Then add the three cheeses and cook for another 45 minutes until a creamy texture is obtained. If the resulting mixture is too thick, thin it with cream or water.
Pre-heat the frying oil to 350 degrees. To cook the shrimp, marinate them in the hot sauce for ten minutes. In a bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, Seafood Magic, peppers and salt. Drain the shrimp. Place the shrimp, a few at a time in a sieve and liberally coat with the flour mixture, shaking them in the sieve to lose the excess flour. Fry them for about 2 minutes, until lightly golden. To cook the mushrooms, saute them in the butter, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the Tasso ham and cook another 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
To assemble the dish, ladle the grits over the surface of a serving plate, spoon the mushroom mixture on top, sprinkle the green onions over the plate and then place the shrimp on top. Serve immediately.
(Note: For the Tasso you can substitute sauteed, unsmoked ham hock.) Yield: 5 servings
