Cheesy Shrimp & Grits

Posted Apr 13 2010 4:59pm
  • 4 cups water (+ more to keep grits moist)
  • 1 cup grits (aka polenta)
  • 3 tblsp butter
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 pounds large shrimp (peeled and deveined)
  • 6 slices bacon - pork or turkey (chopped)
  • 4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon)
  • 2 tblsp parsley (chopped)
  • 1 cup scallions (thinly sliced)
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • Salt & Pepper

Directions
  1. Bring water to a boil. Add some salt and pepper and the grits. Cook for 20-25 minutes.  If grits start to look dry, keep adding splashes of water to keep it moist and creamy. 
  2. Meanwhile...  Rinse shrimp and pat dry. 
  3. Fry the bacon in a large skillet until browned; drain well and chop up. 
  4. In the bacon grease, cook the shrimp on medium heat until pink.  Add the lemon juice, chopped bacon, chopped parsley, scallions and garlic.  Saute for another 3 minutes.
  5. Remove grits from the heat and stir in the butter and cheese.  YUM!
  6. Either mix up everything together, or spoon grits into bowls and top with shrimp mixture. Serve immediately and chow down!
  7. Enjoy!
