Ingredients

Polenta

Instructions

  • 1. To make the chimichurri. In a medium bowl, combine the cilantro, parsley, jalapeño, garlic, red wine vinegar, olive oil, lime juice, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt. Stir in the corn.
    2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the shrimp and season lightly with salt and pepper. Cook until pink, about 2-3 minutes per side and cooked through. Add a few spoonfuls of the chimichurri and cook another minute or two. Remove from the heat. 
    3. To serve, divide the polenta between bowls and top with shrimp. Spoon over the remaining chimichurri. Enjoy!

Polenta

  • 1. In a medium saucepan bring 2 cups of water and the milk to a boil over medium heat. Slowly whisk in the polenta, stirring, until the polenta is soft and thick, about 5 minutes. Stir in the butter until melted. Season with salt and pepper.
