Shrimp and Grits
Shrimp and grits are a classic southern comfort food!
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
- 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
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, then seasoned salt, and mix well.
When grits have thickened again and are heated through, stir in cheese.
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!
