Ingredients

Truffled Grits with Aged Cheddar:
Tomato Jam:

Directions

In a hot saute pan over medium heat, add the olive oil and sweat the chorizo until the fat starts to render, about 1 1/2 minutes. Then add the garlic and shallots. Cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the cumin, smoked paprika and cayenne pepper. Deglaze with the clam juice and add the heavy cream. Allow to reduce by half. Finish with the butter and keep warm until ready to serve.

When ready to serve, add the rock shrimp and cook for about 2 minutes.

Fry the eggs according to your preference.

Serve the shrimp and chorizo over the Truffled Grits with Aged Cheddar and top with the fried eggs. Garnish with Tomato Jam and serve with crusty white bread.

Truffled Grits with Aged Cheddar:

Bring the milk, cream and butter to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Whisk in the grits vigorously. Lower the heat and continue to cook, about 10 minutes. Season with the salt and pepper. Taste the grits at this point; if they are still firm, continue to cook until softened. If grits become too thick, thin with additional milk.

Remove from the heat and stir in the cheeses and truffle shavings or truffle oil. Keep warm until ready to serve.

Tomato Jam:

On the base of each tomato, slice an X with a paring knife, piercing the skin. Drop the tomatoes in boiling water for about 30 seconds. Place tomatoes in ice water. Remove the peel from the tomatoes and slice in half, squeezing out the seeds. Roughly chop. Place in a saucepan over high heat with the sugar, sherry vinegar, soy sauce, 1/2 cup water and togarashi, and bring to a boil. Cook rapidly, stirring often, until the liquid has evaporated by 80 percent and the tomatoes have a jam-like consistency, 25 to 30 minutes. Refrigerate and use as needed.

Cook's Note

For an additional garnish, add grilled Gulf shrimp seasoned with the same spices used to make the Moroccan sauce.
