Shrimp and Grits, Her Way (photos)



When I texted the wife (MHNBPF) that I was on my way home tonight, she texted back that she was making shrimp and grits and that if I liked I could be her assistant (Sou Chef). I said OK and here is how it went. I think her recipe is a little different from mine.

You'll need:

- 2 servings cooked grits (about 1 1/2 cups dry measure stone ground grits cooked in half water half milk with a dash of salt.
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 1/4 cup cubed Conecuh Sausage
- 2 Tablespoons diced green onions
- 2 Tablespoons diced green pepper
- 2 Tablespoons diced onion
- 20 +- medium to large shrimp (raw peeled)
- 2 Tablespoons white wine
- 1 cup Heavy whipping cream
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Creole Seasoning for shrimp and in finished dish
- Green onion tops or chopped parsley



Cook grits to package directions except use half water and half milk. Season to taste. Set aside and leep warm



Peel shrimp and season with creole seasoning. Set aside until they get happy



Heat oil in saute pan. Cook off cubed sausage then add vegetables and saute until tender.



Add shrimp and wine



and cook until they pick up some color



Add the heavy cream



And cook for a minute or two to let everyone get happy.



The wife was unhappy with the consistency of her sauce, so she removed the shrimp and reduced the sauce.





Better



On the table Shrimps over Grits.



Hers



Mine



Spoon view





Perfect

Where's desert?

You really are trying to make me gain weight aren't you? At least you didn't have cornbread to go with that dish.

I'm on Team MeridianDog, but I concur with your assessment.

Just a little crusty bread. And that and a cup of low fat yogurt was my food for the day.

Oh - and a Captain Jack serving of Blueberry Crisp.

The wife tells me my portion of Shrimp and Grits was 1300 calories, so we don't do this often.

I figure the blueberries and icecream was about 600, so I went over my limit. Going to see my mom this weekend, so that's a total peas and beans and cornbread loss.

turd trails.


They bring you from the backwoods of Meridian, to the highway, which is only about 6/10'ths of mile away from Flavortown.

They are no worse than eating a crawfish tail, or sucking the head or hundreds of things lots of people eat or do.

Simple fact is you have no idea what my food tastes like and also that you never will.
