STEPS:
Poached Shrimp:
In a 6 qt. pot on medium high heat bring wine, water, lemon juice, and salt to a boil.
Add shrimp and cook for 3-5 minutes until shrimp are done. Do Not Overcook.
Carefully remove shrimp from water and place in a bowl of ice water.
After shrimp have cooled, peel shrimp leaving head and tail on.
Then place to the side until ready to plate.

Green Chile Grit Cake: (This can be done 1 to 2 days ahead)
In a 6 qt. pot on medium high heat, bring milk and water to a boil, making sure not to scald milk.
Slowly add grits to pot while using a whisk to incorporate. 
Continue to stir until grits start to thicken.
Using a spatula, stir in cheeses, butter, salt and pepper and continue to stir until cheese is incorporated.
Taste and add more salt and pepper if needed.
Remove cheese grits from heat and stir in jalapenos.
On a small sheet pan 9 X 13 or casserole dish, carefully pour grits on to sheet pan and smooth out with spatula or spoon, edge to edge.
Let cool to room temperature, then cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for a minimum of 2 hours. Preferably overnight.
Remove pan from fridge and using a 3” cookie cutter, cut grits into discs.
Set discs to the side until assembly.

Sweet Corn Ragout:
In large sauté pan, melt butter over medium high heat, then add garlic, red onion, red bell pepper, poblano peppers, and corn. Cook for about 5-6 minutes or until peppers are tender and onion is translucent.
Reduce heat to medium and stir in spinach and cook until spinach wilts.
Remove from heat, stir in lemon zest and let cool. 
After cooling stir in cilantro and green onions

Plate Assembly:
In a medium (12”)  sauté pan, melt 4 Tbl butter over medium heat, then add 4 grit cakes and cook until cakes are golden brown on one side, then flip and do the other.
Each side should take 3-5 minutes.
Remove grit cake and place on paper towel to soak up excess butter.
On a small plate (8”) place one grit cake in center, then spoon 4 Tbl spoons of the corn ragout over the top, then place 3 shrimp on top of ragout. 
This is just a guideline, but use your imagination and do it your way.
