  1. For the Grits:
  2. In a medium saucepan, bring broth and milk to a gentle boil and slowly whisk in grits. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for about 12-15 minutes stirring frequently. While the grits are cooking prepare the sausage and shrimp.
  3. When the grits are done stir in the Asiago cheese. Keep them warm and continue to stir until ready to serve. (Grits cannot be made ahead of time.)
  4. For the Sausage and Shrimp:
  5. Cook coin sliced sausage in a 12" skillet over medium heat for about 10-12 minutes until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a bowl and reserve.
  6. Add olive oil to the hot skillet and cook the shrimp, turning until cooked through about 3-4 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, red pepper, corn, green onions, garlic, seasoning and water and cook another 3-4 minutes. Add the cooked sausage and heat through.
  7. Spoon grits into individual bowls and top with sausage and shrimp mixture.

I made this with Kohr's Spanish Rice instead of the Grits. It was amazing! Delicious! I would definitely make this dish again.

Very tasty - I omitted the corn and tomatoes, but otherwise it's a very easy recipe.

This is very good. We are not fond of grits so I did this with Polenta. I doubled the cheese & the garlic for additional flavor. This was a company worthy dish. Thanks for sharing!

This turned out very good. The only thing I did was cut the recipe in half. I loved the Asiago cheese in the grits. This was pretty easy to make also. I didn't realize it but I had bought qu...

Really good--I used Johnsonville chorizo instead of hot Italian sausage and it went so well with the shrimp! Next time, I think I'll make a sauce out of sausage drippings, a little flour, half ...
