For shrimp skewers
  Shrimp/Any fresh shrimp 3 Dozen (U-15 Alabama Gulf)
  Shallot 1 Medium, minced
  Extra virgin olive oil 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Lemon zest 1
  Lime zest 1
  Kosher salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Black pepper To Taste
  Flat leaf parsley 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), chopped
For creamy parmesan grits
  Water 4 Cup (64 tbs)
  White stone ground grits 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Unsalted butter 2 Tablespoon
  Grated parmesan 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (Such As Parmigiano-Reggiano)
  Salt To Taste
  Fresh ground pepper To Taste

For Shrimp Skewers
Peel and de-vein shrimp, leaving tails on or off, and place shrimp in sealed bag. Place other ingredients in small food processor and pulse/mix until it just comes together. Remove marinade and mix well with shrimp. Leave to marinate in fridge for 1 hour. Turn on grill to med-high and when ready grill shrimp on both sides for a few minutes until center is opaque. Grab some bamboo skewers, put some shrimp on the end and have fun dipping them into the parmesan grits!

For Creamy Parmesan Grits
In a medium saucepan, bring water to boil. Add the salt, then whisk in the grits in a slow, steady stream, whisking constantly to prevent clumps and thoroughly mix in the grits. Bring to a boil while whisking, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Stir occasionally with a wooden spoon until grits are thickened and tender. When finished cooking, add the butter and parmesan, stir until well combined, then add salt and pepper as desired. Remember to add a little salt and pepper -- you can always add more, but you cannot take away.
