Live from Charleston, South Carolina! Our version of The (not so) Deadliest Catch. Join my daughter Bailey and me onboard the 68-foot shrimp trawler 'Winds of Fortune' with Captain Wayne Magwood (from 'Dirty Jobs') as we catch shrimp for a classic Charleston dish - shrimp and grits.

  Large shrimp 3 Pound, cleaned, peeled and deveined
  Grits/Polenta 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Adjust Quantity As Needed)

Directions

In a large pot, saute onion in a little olive oil until translucent. Add garlic and bacon and cook until bacon is crispy. Then add tomatoes, white wine and tomato paste. Bring to a boil, lower heat and let simmer 5 - 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, make enough grits according to package directions, for 8 servings.
