Lafayette Shrimp & Grits
A favorite dining room entre at the Inn.

8 21/25 Shrimp
C Purple Onion Sliced
C Yellow & Green Bell Pepper Strips
1 oz. Southern Comfort
C Barbecue Sauce
C Prepared fresh stone ground grits (see separate recipe)
1 tbsp. Clarified butter

Place pan on high heat, then add clarified butter. Toss in shrimp and saut. When shrimp begin to turn opaque, add peppers and onion and toss. As the vegetables begin to melt, remove from heat and add Southern Comfort. Return to heat and flamb. As flamb dies down, add BBQ sauce and simmer for 1 minute.

Place a scoop of grits in the center of a soup plate; arrange shrimp (tails up) on grits. Place onions & peppers in the center. Drizzle sauce along outside.

Serves one hungry person!
