1. Pour water over the cornmeal, bring to a boil, reduce heat to a minimum, and cook for 35-40 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2. When the grain absorbs almost all the water, add the milk, while mixing vigorously. Five minutes before the end of cooking, add the butter, the cream, and then at the very end - coarsely grated cheese. Mix thoroughly until the mixture is uniform and creamy.

3. Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a large pan with a non-stick surface. Peel and chop the onion and the garlic finely. Stir fry the vegetables for 2 or 3 minutes until soft.

4. Add the butter and the shrimp. Fry for 10 minutes until the shrimp become pink. Take out the shrimp to a plate, and add roughly torn spinach leaves, green onion, condensed milk and cream to the pan. Leave boiling on low heat, stirring occasionally.

5. When the sauce reaches the desired thickness, add salt, pepper and spicy sauce to taste.

6. Pour the sauce into a bowl, and add the remaining olive oil into the pan. Return the shrimp to the pan, sprinkle with garlic powder, cayenne pepper, chopped parsley and salt, if desired. Fry on medium heat for 5-7 more minutes.

7. Place the polenta on each plate, pour the sauce with shrimp on top. Serve.
