In 2006 I vacationed with my cousin Laure at her condo on the beach, where we made this dish. Garlic, green onions, and fresh thyme are sautéed in butter and then simmered with the grits, chicken broth, and a bit of heavy cream. Roasted bell peppers, feta cheese, and shrimp finish the dish. That day we used Royal Reds, a deep-water variety of shrimp found in the Gulf.
This is one of my favorite recipes, one that I used to make often for family and friends. Rice noodles, lime juice, ground peanuts, and fish sauce are a delicious combination. I typically omit the bean sprouts. And yes, you really use a whole tablespoon of red pepper flakes. Trust me.
