Shrimp & Grit Hushpuppies Recipe:

4 Cups Water

2 Cups Heavy Cream

3 Cups Grits

1/2 pound Butter

1 Tbl Salt

1 Tbl White Pepper

1 Tbl Chipolte Purée

1/2 Pound Shrimp Chopped

1 Tbl Green Onion (chopped)

11/2 Cup Whole Corn

1 Cup Diced Red Bell Pepper

1 Tbl Chopped Parsley

Put first 2 ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Stir in grits and simmer for 10 minutes. Slowly stir in the remaining ingredients. Once the shrimp turns pink pour the mixture onto a pan to cool. Once mixture is cooled prepare to fry. You will need plain flour, a few beaten eggs and yellow cornmeal. Using a small spoon or scoop, roll the mixture into small hushpuppy size balls. Dip into the flour, egg wash and then the cornmeal. At this time you can place them into a 365 degree fryer or skillet with oil. The Hushpuppies will fry for about 2:30 or until golden brown.
