Method

In a medium bowl, combine shrimp, pimentón, salt, 2 tablespoons of the oil and 3 tablespoons of the garlic.

Toss to combine, then refrigerate while you prepare polenta and sauce.

Preheat the oven to 250°F (or a warming setting).

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Add polenta, working in batches if needed, and cook until browned on both sides, about 3 minutes per side.

Transfer to a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven.

Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat.

Add shallot, remaining 2 tablespoons garlic and celery, and cook until fragrant and soft, about 2 minutes.

Add flour and stir to coat vegetables.

Cook until flour is no longer dry, about 1 minute.

Add milk and stir to combine.

Bring to a simmer and cook until thickened slightly, about 4 minutes.

Remove from heat, stir in cheese and keep warm.

Heat a skillet over medium-high heat.

Add shrimp and cook until browned around the edges and cooked through, about 7 minutes.

Serve immediately over polenta, topped with sauce.
