Shrimp and "Grits"

Ok, so those aren't real grits. This isn't exactly prepared in the typical southern fashion, either, but the idea behind it is similar.

*Serves 2*


1 Head cauliflower
8 oz Large shrimp
1/2 Yellow onion, chopped
2 Vine ripened tomatoes, chopped
1 Tbsp Light olive oil
1 Tbsp Parsley
2 Tbsp Unsalted butter
2 Tbsp Heavy whipping cream
1 tsp Garlic powder
Coarse salt and pepper to taste


Boil the cauliflower until tender. While this is boiling, heat the oil on medium in a large pan. Add the onions, tomatoes, shrimp, parsley, garlic powder, and salt and pepper to the oil and stir. Simmer for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain the cauliflower and break into pieces small enough to fit neatly into the basin of a food processor. Combine the cauliflower, butter, cream, and a little salt in the food processor until smooth. Spoon onto two plates and make a pocket on top. Spoon the shrimp mixture into these pockets and serve.
