Grits are a coarsely ground grain that have been enjoyed by many for thousands of years. What used to be considered a breakfast staple has now become a showcased entree in the finest of restaurants, often featured with a delicious shrimp pairing. When you order Executive Chef Tommy D’Ambrosio’s latest concoction, you can enjoy the exquisite taste of Shrimp and Grits, made with the finest of ingredients and flavor fusions, all from the comfort of your very own home.
Chef Tommy is a graduate from the Culinary Institute of America and when you taste his rendition of this quintessential southern cuisine, you’ll be extremely grateful you had to foresight to plan your meals with a professional. Our Shrimp and Grits entree is a concoction of five perfectly prepared shrimp served over creamy cheddar cheese grits and fused with the diverse flavors of bacon, tomatoes, garlic, red pepper flakes, and scallions.
For our customers considering special diets, this meal is naturally gluten free and can also be prepared vegetarian. For those of you monitoring your food servings, this meal consists of: 5 shrimp, 1 cup of grits, 1/2 cup cream, 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, 1 tbsp shallot, 1 tbsp bacon and 5 fresh cherry tomatoes.
Here in the southwest, most of us aren’t as accustomed to preparing grits as our neighbors to the east. While it doesn’t take an engineering degree to figure out, creating the perfect consistency of creamy, cheddar-infused grits can be a process of trial and error. Topping it with savory shrimp that have been prepared with a perfect selection of ingredients to maximize the flavor combination is no easy task. It’s a long list of ingredients and requires the management of more than a few pots on the stove going at once. To put it simply, a meal like this requires time and money.
This is exactly what inspired Chef Tommy to develop Fresh Taste Meal Prep. People should have access to delicious, gourmet food without the fuss of assembling a long list of ingredients, preparing the meal, and dealing with a horrendous cleanup when it’s all said and done.
