This looks like quite a complicated and long recipe, but actually most of the prep is preparing the polenta millet cakes You could take two shortcuts: 1) Make the millet and polenta cakes ahead of time and just grill or char before serving, or 2) buy a "tube" of cooked polenta from a good grocer, slice it into rounds and char or grill as provided below, and simply serve your shrimp and tomato sauce over your polenta rounds.
