Bacon Wrapped Shrimp with Grits and Spicy Dipping Sauce Preparation
Wrap the shrimp with bacon, secure with toothpick. Grill until done.
Using a deep sauce pot combine chicken stock and milk. Bring to a simmer, add butter, and allow time for it to dissolve. Slowly whisk in grits a little at a time. When grits begin to thicken, lower heat. Switch to a spatula and fold in the rest of the ingredients. Adjust for addition seasonings if needed. If grits are too thick, add more chicken stock.
For the Chipotle-Tomato Butter Sauce:
In a sauce pot, saute onions and garlic over medium heat. Next, add tomatoes, chipotle peppers and peppercorns. Continue to cook for another three minutes. Deglaze with chicken stock and lower heat. Cook for 5 minutes then place in a blender; blend till smooth. Place liquid back in sauce pot and over low heat mount with butter, whisking in a little at a time. Add cilantro and season with lemon juice and salt. Turn off heat and allow 5 minutes to steep cilantro. Strain through fine mesh strainer and reserve warm till time to serve.
Place small amount of grits in the center of a large plate. Drizzle sauce around grits. Place three pieces of shrimp around grits.
