  1. Add stock to a medium saucepan or large skillet and bring to a boil. Stir in the grits and continue to stir for approximately 4 minutes, then reduce heat to a simmer. Add cream as needed to keep the grits moist.
  2. Place shrimp in a large ziplock bag with the garlic, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper and lemon zest. Make sure the spices are mixed well and coating the shrimp, then place the bag in the refrigerator to marinate for 20 minutes.
  3. After the 20 minutes are up, add butter, goat cheese, parsley and basil to the grits. Stir and add salt and pepper.
  4. Heat a saute pan to medium high heat. In a little butter, add shrimp (including the marinating mixture) and saute for 5 minutes, or until shrimp are opaque and form a C . Do not overcook the shrimp!
  5. To serve, spoon grits onto a serving plate, and add 4 shrimp and some liquid from the saute pan on top of the grits.
