I made shrimp and grits for the first time about 2-weeks ago, it was darn good.

Firecracker Shrimp:
1/2 lb shrimp shelled & deveined
2-3 tbls olive oil
1 tsp garlic chili paste or sambal
2 tbls sriracha
1/2 tsp garlic jelly (optional, can be replaced with 1tsp cider vinegar and 1 clove minced garlic)
Pinch of salt & pepper

Mix the wet ingredients + S & P together and pour into a ziploc bag, place shrimp in bag to marinate 15-30 minutes.

Heat a non stick skillet over med-high heat, add shrimp and marinade and cook until shrimp are just pink and opaque. Serve over grits.

For my grits I used the direction on the back of the bag but replaced the water with milk, chicken stock would be good here as well. After liquid is absorbed stir in 1/2 C or so of shredded cheddar cheese.
