Shrimp Grits (photos)


Sunday Dinner

To do it my way, you'll need

Grits (Stone Ground Sciple Mill Grits),Shrimp, Onions, Celery, Pepper (green, yellow, orange), 4 Garlic Cloves, Bacon (for the meat and grease),Smoked Sausage, Green Onions, Tomato, Oil, Thyme, Black Pepper, Creole Seasoning, Red Pepper Flakes, Cayenne Pepper, Lawry's Garlic Salt, Kosher Salt, Heavy Cream (in fridge), Chardonnay (in wine rack).

Make the grits:

1 cup grits, 2 cups water, 1 cup cream, 1 tablespoon butter, 1/4 tsp salt. Bring to a boil and then simmer with lid for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. I like mine thick - the thicker the better. And no cheese for me.

Peel and season the shrimp (Creole Seasoning, Pepper Flakes, Cayanne Pepper, Thyme, Lawry's). Set aside.


Has nothing to do with this recipe, but whenever I have shrimp peels, I make shrimp stock, freeze it in a zip lock bag and keep for later use.


Back to the shrimp grits - Prep the trinity veggies and set aside.


Cut up and cook the bacon. When crispy, remove bacon and set aside.




Saute the veggies


When the mood strikes you, add the sausage


Eventually, add the tomato (peeled and diced) and garlic.


Cook until garlic is tnder and tomato begins to break down, then add a 1/2 cup of Chardonnay and the shrimp


When shrimp are getting happy, add bacon


We are getting close now


Add a half cup of Heavy Cream


and set up plates with grits then add the shrimps and garnish with green onions


I guess I forgot the part where I made buttered Cibatta Bread Toast.

My plate


The wife's (MHNBPF) plate


Tasty Sunday night treat.

Looks awesome.

Recipe is similar to The Fish House in Pensacola.

I like the Gouda grits though.

Do the tomatoes give off enough acidity to counterbalance all of the richness of the dish? A little white wine would really help, in my opinion. Great pictures, hope you enjoy.

I've gone so long without bread that I now spend more time looking at the bread pictures than the main dish.

I had given bread up for 60 days, then with the deaths in the family, I fell off the wagon. I do intend to get back on it and act seriously again (with regards to carbs), as soon as the family strain lessens a little.

Been about 3 years for me. I've had some bread but I could probably count the times I've had it on two hands.

Haven't had corn bread in 3 years.Just seasoned a skillet Friday night and bought the fixings for cornbread which I am going to make on Friday.

I always inspect shrimp before cooking them. It is something I always take notice of when I buy them. I normally devein jumbo shrimp, but seldom do anything to shrimp smaller than jumbo, unless the vein is really dark.

I know - weird, and I guess I am.

Put your recipe in the recipe thread with the pics. People are always asking for shrimp and grits.
