kell's (spiiiicy) shrimp & grits

whatever seasonings you have in your cabinet

i used wayyy too much spice. i was going for that red, blackened crunchy creole look. ya know?
i added a tiny bit of chicken stock and olive oil to a pan to sauté my shrimp and added all the seasoning. (black pepper, crushed red pepper, red pepper flakes, paprika, chili powder, parsley, garlic salt)
the shrimp weren't getting crispy at all so i separated the sauce into another pan and "dry-fried" the shrimp. 
i added a pinch or two of flour to thicken up the sauce and put it on top of the grits for the shrimp to sit on.

this was my first time making grits, so i was really nervous. the grits themselves took about 10 minutes & the process was like boiling rice. i added a couple handfuls of shredded cheese to them after they were done cooking. 
i gotta say, this dinner was fabulous! and jeremy was lovin' it, too. i was pretty nervous about making it, but i will definitely make it again. it was so easy!!
