  1. Cook grits with the shrimp stock according to package instructions.

Add chili powder, paprika, Cajun seasoning, garlic and some salt and cook for 1 minute, stirring, then add the tomato paste and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add the cognac and reduce by half, then add the tomatoes and cook until they start to break down, about 5 minutes. Puree mixture in a blender and set aside.
  3. Saute the sliced andouille in a medium skillet to achieve a dark sear on both sides, about 8 minutes total. Remove cooked andouille and sear shrimp in andouille fat, about 2 minutes per side.
  4. Combine grits with tomato mixture and stir to combine. Spoon andouille and shrimp on top and serve immediately.
