Polenta with Chipotle Shrimp

Polenta with Chipotle Shrimp

This recipe was created out of our love of Polenta in my home.  Polenta is a versatile accompaniment for chicken or seafood.  This is a great and yummy recipe. Any leftover Polenta can be used the next day by cutting them in strips and fried in a little bit of olive oil and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.  

Chipotle Shrimp (Makes 4 Servings)


  1. 2 cups of Polenta
  2. 4 cups of water (this can be substituted with milk)
  3. 1 tablespoon of Olive Oil
  4. ½ cup of Fontina cheese (grated)
  5. 1/3 cup of Parmesan cheese
  6. 1 teaspoon of Salt
  7. 1 teaspoon of freshly ground pepper
  8. 1 lb of Xtra-Large shrimps (cleaned and deveined)
  9. 2 chipotles in Adobo Sauce
  10. 1 large sweet onion
  11. 1 large red pepper
  12. 2 tablespoons of Olive Oil
  13. Salt, pepper to taste


Add the olive oil in a skillet.Add the water and salt, then bring to a boil. Add the Polenta while whisking to avoid getting lumps in your polenta. Lower the heat and allow the polenta to cook. This take about 7-8 minutes. Add the fontina cheese and allow it to melt. Then, add the Parmesan cheese.
