Signature Series: Seafood, part two
Shrimp & Grits - WakeMed Health & Hospitals, Raleigh, N.C.
This signature dish is a favorite at the chef’s station at WakeMed Health & Hospitals. Jessica Marchand, R.D., director of food and nutrition services, says: “Chef Antonio substitutes nonfat milk for heavy cream to lower the fat content. He poaches the shrimp and incorporates the flavorful broth instead of creating a butter sauce that comes with the classic preparation. This dish is served with fresh vegetables like baby spinach and fresh-diced tomatoes, giving this meal a healthier, yet delicious and unexpected balance.”
