Default Spicy Low-Country Shrimp and Grits

Special thanks goes out to Cajun Blake for helping me secure a bag of Louisiana's finest groceries and spices. Having the right ingredients always helps make a recipe great. Hope everyone gets to try this one as it is one of our family's favorite dishes - if you like it a little spice in your life....

4 cups milk

1 1/2 pounds (21 count) shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 tablespoons Cajun seasoning
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 small chopped piquillo peppers
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 c cream to finish

Made this tonight, and it is freakin awesome. I could not find regular yellow grits, so I used instant. It was still great. I have never liked grits, but this will be a regular at my house from now on.

Andouille sausage is one of the wonders of the Louisiana cuisine heritage and is worth the effort to find it. To me it has the same effect as saffron in a dish. Find it if you can and use it in your next batch. Worth the google search or ask your local specialty food store.

Made this last night. Could not find the piquillo peppers. It was plenty spicy and flavorful without them, My friends and family thought this was an outstanding recipe. I will be making this again; although it is very rich, so it will be for special occassions. My wife just returned from New Orleans and heated up some of the left overs. Her words "that is as good as anything I ate in New Orleans".

Kudos to TD2000 for providing this recipe.

Lowfence,

You have that recipe down. Looks just like it should. You have me hungry even if it is breakfast time. It's on our menu for dinner tonight.

As a fyi, the piquillo peppers are like and can be substituted with some roasted red bell peppers which you can do yourself or buy in small containers.


Piquillo peppers

Other names: Piquillo chile

The name piquillo means "little beak". Traditionally piquillo peppers are grown in Northern Spain and are hand picked then roasted over open fires. The peppers are then peeled, all by hand then packed in jars or tins. The roasting of the pepper gives it a rich, spicy-sweet flavor.
