Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I am from South Africa. With spicy sea salt seasoning, fry a large chopped onion, add to polenta with cupful of biltong (jerky for America, of course) and 1 x 410 g tin creamed sweetcorn, sweet chilli sauce - add lotsa cheddar just before serving - plus mixed salad. Yummy!! Nutritionwise? No idea! Submitted by:

Polenta is Italian for grits. Shrimp and cheese grits is a Louisiana staple. Corn is a grain and a low glycemic carbohydrate and excluding carbohydrates from the diet unbalances the macro nutrients.. Submitted by:

I really liked the recipe. I wouldn't add the milk or Parmesan to the polenta since you can't really taste it. I would add a reduced fat cheddar on the veggie mix afterwards. Submitted by:

Quite nice and easy to make. Since I low-carb, I substituted spaghetti squash for the polenta. Submitted by:

I eat shrimp at last once a week, so I will gladly give this a try Plus love polenta, being Italian. Might try with chicken. I will use my own BBQ sauce. As I try to stay away from products with preservatives and too much sodium. All the other flavors I like are there. Submitted by:
