Bring water and heavy cream to a boil. Turn off the heat and add the grits, stirring occasionally. Do not turn the heat back on. Add the Parmesan, salt, pepper, butter and hot sauce to taste and cover and let sit stirring occasionally until the desired consistency is reached.

Mix the dry ingredients for the seafood seasoning.

Using a non-stick pan cook the onions, garlic, sausage and shrimp and mushrooms until the shrimp are done and the onions are soft. The sausage should have released some of its oils as well. Add the seafood seasoning blend and toss to coat ingredients adding more oil or butter as needed to keep from sticking. Stir in the diced tomatoes and cook for a few more minutes before deglazing with white wine. Cook until slightly reduced and add the heavy cream. Continue cooking until the liquid is slightly thickened and a nice creamy pinkish red color. Take care not to overcook at this point as the cream will separate. If you do, simply add more cream and cook for a few more moments. 

Pour shrimp over grits and garnish with fresh Parmesan.
