This Savory Cajun Shrimp Breakfast Bowl is just that----SAVORY + full of flavor! Unlike any typical breakfast bowl, this recipe highlights a bit of spice from the cajun seasoning, sweet from the candied bacon, cheesiness from the creamy polenta, and bursts of other great flavors from the fried egg and greens. Just a complete bowl of goodness!
Boil 2 cups of water and 2 cups of chicken stock on the stove on medium-high heat. Then whisk in the polenta and add a pinch of sea salt to taste. Continuously stir polenta until it begins to thicken. Now, reduce the heat to low and let it simmer with a lid cover over the pot. Every few minutes, take off the lid and whisk continuously and then place the lid back on again. **NOTE: Cook for a total of 20-30 minutes, or until polenta has thickened enough to your liking. Turn the heat off and add in butter and cheese, stirring until completely melted and creamy.
Add ALL ingredients (except for Butter) to a small bowl with shrimp and toss until well coated. Heat butter in a skillet over medium-high heat and add shrimp, cooking on each side for about 2-3 minutes (until pink). Add a bit more sriracha sauce if desired and toss shrimp for another minute or so and remove from heat.
To assemble: Add polenta in a medium sized serving bowl, then place shrimp, fried egg, candied bacon, and greens evenly atop polenta. Season with a pinch of salt + pepper, if desired. Wallah!
