Recipe for Shrimp with Fresh Corn Grits
Ingredients

3 ears of corn (husked)

2 cups low-sodium chicken broth

1 cup whole milk

3/4 cup grits (not instant)

2 tbsp unsalted butter

kosher salt

freshly ground pepper

1/4 cup olive oil

2 garlic cloves (thinly sliced)

1/2 tsp dried oregano

1/2 tsp hot smoked Spanish paprika or 1/2 tsp smoked paprika and a pinch of cayenne pepper

1 1/2 lbs large shrimp (peeled, deveined, tails left intact)

Chopped fresh chives (for serving)

Preparation Method

Grate 2 ears of corn on the large holes of a box grater over a medium bowl, catching as much juice as possible; set aside. Cut kernels from remaining ear of corn into another medium bowl; set aside.

In a medium saucepan, bring to boil the broth, milk, and 1 1/2 cups water. Reduce heat so liquid is at a simmer and gradually whisk in grits. Simmer, whisking often, until grits are very tender, 20–25 minutes. Mix in butter and reserved grated corn; season with salt and pepper.

Fifteen minutes after you have added grits to saucepan, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook garlic, oregano, and paprika, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add reserved kernels and cook,stirring occasionally, until golden brown and beginning to pop, about 3 minutes. Add shrimp and cook, tossing occasionally, until cooked through, about 4 minutes.

Serve shrimp and corn over grits topped with chives.
