Gulf Coast Shrimp and Grits
True Midtown Kitchen; Mobile, AL
"I worked with a cook who had this great recipe for Italian red sauce, so I translated that into shrimp and grits. For me, this is the perfect comfort food because you have buttery Parmesan grits combined with a rich, tomato-based sauce that's both familiar and just a little different." —Wesley True
