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.
