Picture it...we're taking all of the traditional flavors from a classic french onion soup, turning it into a saucy situation for some juicy shrimp to take a swim in, then we're serving it over a big ol' bowl of creamy gruyere grits. Does that sound like heaven in a bowl, or what?
Let's start with our french onion mix. We're going to start with with some butter and a big ol' onion. Both will go straight into a saute pan along with our aromatics. To mimic the flavors of classic french onion soup, we'll add some thyme, a bay leaf, and some worcestershire sauce into the pan with the onions. The worcestershire helps to give the onions that savory beef flavor that we know and love about french onion soup. We'll cook the onions low and slow until the begin to caramelize and turn to a deep golden brown color.
