Ingredients
  • Crawfish Grits:
  • 4 ounces butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 pound quick grits
  • 1 pound cleaned crawfish tail meat
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan
  • Salt and pepper
  • Blackened Shrimp:
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil or butter
  • 8 ounces jumbo shrimp (16/20)
  • 1/4 cup Cajun seasoning
Directions
  • For the grits: Bring 7 cups water to a boil, then add the butter and heavy cream. Simmer for 2 minutes on medium heat. Stir in the grits while whipping until smooth (not grainy). Add the crawfish, while whipping, then add the Parmesan. Add salt and pepper to taste.

  • For the shrimp: Heat a saute pan on medium-low heat with the olive oil. Lightly dust the shrimp in the Cajun seasoning on both sides. Sear for until tender, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Remove from the heat and place 1 or 2 shrimp on top of each serving of grits.
