FunniBonz Barbequed Shrimp with Chipotle Bleu Cheese Grits

This weekend at the DC Metroplitan Food, Libations and Luxury Home Show, Jim Barbour from FunniBonz teamed up with Glenn Coleman of Glenn's Gourmet Goodies to demonstrate the versatility of their products.

One of the dishes that they made was Shrimp and Grits, making use of several of their products.  Here is a quick and easy meal based on their recipes.

Stuff you'll need:
1 lb Shrimp, shelled and deveined
1 box Quick Grits
1 package Bleu Cheese crumbles
SLAP Seasoning
Light Cooking Oil
1 jar FunniBonz Original
1 bottle Chipotle White BBQ Sauce

Make grits as usual (about 6 servings). 

Add about 1/4 cup crumbled bleu cheese and about 1/4 cup of Chipotle White BBQ Sauce and about 2 tablespoons of butter and salt to taste.  Turn heat to lowest setting and put lid on pot.  Be sure to stir occasionally.

Season shrimp with SLAP (Season Like A Pro) seasoning. 

Add a tablespoon of oil to a separate saucepan.  Once pan is hot, add shrimp and cook until opaque, about a minute or two on each side. 

Once shrimp are cooked through, add a couple tablespoons of FunniBonz Barbeque sauce.

Don't add too much sauce as you don't want the shrimp soggy, just gently coated in the sauce.

Once the sauce is warmed through, it's time to plate up your dish.  Place some warm grits on a plate and top with the barbequed shrimp.  Enjoy with a cold beer and the sides of your choice.

Remember that all ingredients can be adjusted to your own tastes.  If you like it more spicy, add more Chipotle BBQ Sauce and some black pepper.  You can also use goat cheese or cream cheese in place of the bleu cheese for more or a less of a tangy flavor.  Feel free to make it your own.  Enjoy!
