I had the most amazing lunch today--Blackened Shrimp with Cajun Crème Sauce, served over
Pepper Jack Grits--at a place called The Pecan in Atlanta. Now I'm back home in Seattle and despairing of ever finding anything like it here, unless I make it myself. Does anybody have a recipe that might come close?
I'm mainly interested in the grits as a side dish--not so much the shrimp. These were spectacularly creamy and rich. I'd prefer a recipe using regular grits, not quick-cooking--most likely Bob's Red Mill will be the easiest to find here. The sauce wasn't all that spicy--wish I'd paid more attention to the flavors in it, but I was too busy swooning over the fabulousness of the whole dish.
