Ingredients

  • 3 cups chicken stock or broth
  • 1 cup 5 minute grits
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned salt
  • 2 cups finely shredded cheese I used a blend of cheddar and monterey jack
  • 1 pound raw shrimp peeled/deveined
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 5 cloves garlic minced

Instructions

Grits:

  • In a large pan bring chicken stock to a rolling boil. Slowly pour in grits, while stirring constantly (if you just dump it in you'll get a giant nasty clump)
  • Reduce heat to low and continue stirring until grits thicken. Pour in cream and mix well.
  • When grits have thickened again and are heated through, stir in cheese.
  • Enjoy!

Shrimp:

  • In a large skillet or wok, bring butter and garlic to a simmer. Stir for a minute or two until garlic is fragrant.
  • Toss in shrimp and cook until they are pink and opaque. Do not overcook.
  • Serve over cheesy grits and enjoy!
