In a lightly buttered sauté pan, over medium-high flame, sauté the Andouille sausage, peppers, onions and shrimp until the shrimp is cooked half way through (about 2 minutes).

Add the low country reduction sauce to the pan and cook for 2 additional minutes or until it begins to thicken.

Remove from heat, add 2-ounces of the Floridian butter and stir to incorporate into the sauce.

Ladle the grits in the center of a brown skillet.

Evenly distribute the Monterey Jack cheese over the grits and pour the shrimp mixture over top.

Garnish with green onions.

Place the skillet on a 12" large round plate.

Cut the French bread in half, lengthwise.  Spread the remaining Floridian butter evenly across each piece of bread.

Place the bread on the grill and cook until golden brown.  Remove and cut diagonally from corner to corner.

Shingle the garlic bread at the 12 o'clock.  Garnish the skillet with a lemon wedge next to the bread.
