BBQ Shrimp & Grits

Source: Chef/owner Howie Kleinberg, Bulldog Barbecue

Howie “Bulldog” Kleinberg got his nickname from the bold attitude he projected as a contestant on TV’s Top Chef.  He fell in love with barbeque after spending summers in North Carolina as a boy. Now Kleinberg is cooking up hunks of meat at his very own BBQ restaurant—along with this southern comfort shrimp dish. It’s a classic “shrimp and grits” with a kick of Bulldog’s Best barbecue sauce and white cheddar cheese.

3 oz. extra virgin olive oil, divided
1 oz. Bulldog’s Best barbecue sauce (or favorite of the house)

1 oz. heavy cream
1 oz. butter
3 oz. white cheddar cheese, shredded
