Crawfish Smothered Grits
1 pound peeled crawfish tails
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup chopped onions
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
2 cups beef stock
3 cups half-and-half
1 1/2 cups quick-cooking white grits
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiana-Reggiano cheese
In a mixing bowl, toss the crawfish tails with salt and cayenne.
In a 3-quart saucepan, over medium heat, add the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the onions. Season the onions with salt and cayenne. Sauté for 2 minutes, or until the onions are soft.
Add the crawfish and garlic. Continue to cook for 2 minutes.
Add the stock and half-and-half to the pan. Season with salt and cayenne. Bring the liquid to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 2 minutes.
Add the grits and stir constantly until they are very tender, about 10 minutes.
Add the cheese and stir to mix and melt it.
