Preparation:
Soak grits in 4 cups of water for a minimum of 6 hours prior to cooking.

Bring water, butter, milk, and 1 tsp. of kosher salt to a light boil. Slowly stir in grits and reduce to a light simmer. Cook for about an hour, stirring frequently. Taste every 15 minutes for texture change. When grits are finished cooling, stir in cheese. Remove from heat when cheese has melted. Grits should be semi stiff and held for other components of the dish.

Rinse shrimp with cold water and place in a bowl big enough to season equally with salt, black pepper, 1 tbsp. olive oil, and ½ tsp. minced garlic. Heat a skillet and 1 tbsp. of olive oil to a white smoke. Add shrimp, one at a time, and cook for about 1 minute or until golden brown. Turn shrimp over and repeat process. Final texture of the shrimp should be firm.

Heat a skillet and 2 tbsp. of olive oil to a white smoke. Add mushrooms, let sit until they start to caramelize or get slightly golden brown. Add garlic, shallots, and thyme. Be careful not to let burn. Reduce heat and finish with 1 tbsp. of unsalted butter. Season and remove from heat.

Plating: Place 3 oz. of grits, 3 jumbo shrimp, 2 tbsp. of mushrooms, and 1 tsp. of warm pancetta vinaigrette over shrimp. Enjoy.
