This is one of those dishes that is so much easier than it sounds. Shrimp and grits can be a last minute hit that you can whip up in no time~ just ask our friends!
I keep a bag of shrimp in the freezer, and grits are always in our pantry.
Smoky Shrimp and Grits
1 cup grits cooked
1/4 cup smoked gouda cheese
1/4 cup cheddar
4 slices bacon
2 green onions
1 pound shrimp
Olive oil (optional)
Cook the grits accoring to the package directions (intant will work fine) stir in grated cheeses and set aside.
In a skillet, fry bacon until extra crispy, remove to cool and crumble. (I pour off most of the bacon grease and add olive oil~ but you don't have to)Lower the heat, then add peeled and deveined shrimp. Cook until shrimp are pink and curled. Toss in crumbled bacon and scallions. Heat through. Serve on top of cheesy grits.
I like to serve this with a little creamed spinach right on top. Yum!
and the best part. . . my time out of the pool and in the kitchen is cut down to just a few minutes.
