Step 1

1. Preheat grill or grill pan to high.

2. Place 1 Tbs oil and garlic in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, until the garlic is sizzling and fragrant, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add crushed red pepper; cook while stirring, about 30 seconds. Add tomatoes and oregano; bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until juicy, about 3 minutes. Stir in shrimp and escarole; cook, stirring, until the escarole is wilted and shrimp are cooked through, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and keep warm.

3. Spray grill with cooking spray. Grill polenta slices until hot and slightly charred, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.

4. Divide the sauce among 4 shallow bowls or plates. Top with 2 polenta slices per plate, sprinkle with chopped olives. Serve immediately.
