Ingredients

    filtered water, 3 cups
    fresh dill, 10-15 sprigs de-stemmed
    marinated artichoke hearts, 2-3 pieces, chopped
    parmesan cheese, shredded, 4-6 tablespoons
    organic yellow corn "quick" grits, 1 cup
    asparagus, fresh 20 spears, chopped into 2-inch pieces
    spicy tomato-infused olive oil, 2 tbsp
    butter, unsalted, 2 tbsp.
    herb salt, to taste





Tips

Save all the shrimp shells to make a shrimp stock. Use the strained shrimp stock instead of plain water to cook the grits. 100% worth the extra time; adds much flavor!

No more than 6 minutes to cook the grits. Do not overcook initially because you will be baking them, too.

Do not overcook the shrimp! They will become tough. When shrimp are opaque (around 20 minutes but YMMV) remove the skillet(s) from the oven.

For breakfast, brunch or dinner. Serve over arugula dressed in the spicy tomato olive oil.


Directions

Generously fills one ten-inch skillet or spread over two smaller skillets. Use an oven-safe skillet. No more than 6 minutes to cook the grits. Do not overcook initially because you will be baking them, too. When the grits are starting to form, add some chopped artichoke, olive oil, herb salt and parmesan cheese.

While you are cleaning the shrimp and asparagus, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Put the skillets in the cold oven. Take the hot skillets out and add 1 tbsp. butter. Let it melt and swirl it around. Then pour in the cooked grits. Layer on the shrimp, dill, asparagus and cheese.

Bake for 20 minutes (until the shrimp are opaque) at 400 degrees to cook the tart.
