Expert Tips

You may have leftover sauce. Refrigerate and use later with pasta or pieces of toasted bread.

Directions

  • 1 Boil the water and add the polenta. Stir constantly until the mixture thickens.
  • 2 Let cook for approximately 30 minutes, add the cheese and set aside.
  • 3 In the meantime, prepare the sauce by toasting the almonds in a pan along with the chopped garlic and pieces of crumbled bread.
  • 4 Brown the red pepper directly over the heat of the stove, remove the skin and let cool.
  • 5 Add the almond mixture to the blender or food processor. Pulverize the ingredients to then add the roasted pepper, cup of tomato, paprika, vinegar and olive oil.
  • 6 Blend until you have a thick sauce. Set aside.
  • 7 Fry the chorizo and shrimp. Cut the chorizo into slices and set aside.
  • 8 Serve a layer of polenta in a deep dish, cover with sauce and a few pieces of chorizo.
  • 9 Add more polenta, a bit of sauce and pieces of chorizo. Finish with the shrimp on the surface.
  • 10 Serve immediately.

Shrimp recipes could easily be considered among the most coveted because it's such a versatile ingredient. This dish, for example, combines the texture of grits with an exquisite tomato and pepper sauce. The final touch is the grilled shrimp that results in a very special rustic dish. You can add other ingredients when you're ready to serve, but pieces of chorizo, manchego cheese and, of course, shrimp are a more than perfect combination.
