Thank you for all the nice responses friends.

Eric and Snip, I sure don't see why Polenta couldn't be excellent for this recipe! I'm a big believer in using what you have and for Polenta I'd use Italian cheeses and maybe Pancetta instead of bacon? Buon Appetito!
Now it's Italian.

Just did a search on Google, seems grits are basically the same thing as Pap our traditional corn meal! I could use that

I went to Wiki and learned all about Pap also Snip!

Kylie I wonder why such a simple corn product is so hard to find down under?
I found this conversation you may find interesting though....

Corn meal - Australia/New Zealand - Chowhound

The thick or thin of the grits depends on the amount of liquid used to cook them. Polenta is a good sub and so is cornmeal.

I just looked up pap in Wikipedia. It says that it is also called mieliepap. Back in the '70s, I had a South African boyfriend. When I served him cornmeal mush for breakfast, he said, "That's mieliepap" I had completely forgotten about that.

So many different names for what is basically the same thing
I thought the same thing when I tasted white polenta for the first time, this is mieliepap

Thanks so much for the conversion Kayelle

recipe, shrimp

Kayelle's Shrimp and Glorified Grits [B]Shrimp and Glorified Grits......:chef: 1 Tbs. butter 1 Tbs. olive oil 1 white onion, finely diced 1 cloves garlic, grated 2 cups milk 3 cups water (a little less for firmer grits) 1/2 tsp. Kosher salt 1 cup Stone Ground or long cooking Grits 1 cup grated cheddar cheese 1/2 lb. bacon, rough chop 20 med. to large raw shrimp, peeled and cleaned 1/4 cup green onion, sliced In a large skillet, cook the bacon to your liking and remove and drain, reserving the bacon fat in the skillet. In a large heavy saucepan, combine the butter and oil to wilt the onion, then add the garlic being careful not to color the garlic. Turn the heat to high and add the milk and water and salt. When it boils, whisk in the grits and turn the heat to low, siring now and then to keep them from sticking and cook for 15 to 20 minutes. Stir the bacon and cheese into the grits, cover and set aside while you cook the shrimp. Salt the shrimp (I like Old Bay seasoning on them). Get your bacon grease nearly smoking in the skillet and depending on the size of your skillet, you may need to cook the shrimp in two batches so they don't touch. Add the shrimp and it will take just seconds to cook on each side. Serve the grits with shrimp on top in large flat bowls, and garnish with sliced green onions. [/B] 3 stars 1 reviews
