"This is a recipe my Alabama mama taught me, who picked it up when she lived in New Orleans. I make it for my family in Oregon and they love it too! This is a traditional Christmas dish for our family, but could be eaten as an entree, a side, or even breakfast anytime of the year!"

  1. Bring polenta, water, and salt to a boil in a saucepan; reduce heat to low and simmer until polenta is thickened, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2.

  3. Transfer shrimp mixture and any pan juices to a large serving bowl and stir grits into the mixture. Stir Cheddar cheese into the hot mixture until melted.
