"Do not overcook this dish. Most seafoods...should be simply threatened with heat and then celebrated with joy."--Jeff Smith, The Frugal Gourmet

1 pound peeled, medium-size raw shrimp
3 cups chicken broth
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground red pepper
1 cup uncooked regular grits
1/2 cup butter
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 cup fine, dry breadcrumbs
1 cup chopped green onions
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

Bring broth, salt and ground red pepper to a boil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat

Whisk in grits, and return to a boil; reduce heat to low, and stir in butter

Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes or until liquid is absorbed

Remove from heat

Stir together eggs, red bell pepper, breadcrumbs, green onions, and Parmesan cheese in a large bowl

Gradually stir about one-fourth of hot grits mixture into egg mixture; add egg mixture to remaining hot grits mixture, stirring constantly

Stir in shrimp until well blended

Pour grits mixture into a lightly greased 11-x 7-inch baking dish

Bake at 325 degrees for 55 minutes to 1 hour or until mixture is set. Let stand 10 minutes
