Simple Shrimp-n-Grits

I have made this for a lot of dinner parties, and it always disappears. I was very close to not sharing this recipe. Only, because I'm going to have to let people in on how simple and quick this dish is. But, this is what this blog is all about - sharing - so, I will :) This is great for a brunch or a dinner to entertain friends. I recently cooked it for friends at the beach. Enjoy :)


3/4 cup quick cook Grits
1 pound large shrimp, peeled, tail off
2 garlic cloves; finely minced
1/4 cup Italian Parsley
1/2 cup white wine
2 cups Chicken Broth or Milk
3 tablespoons Butter
1/2 cup parmesan cheese; grated
1/2 cup white cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Kosher Salt

In a bowl, combine the shrimp, white wine, garlic, cayenne pepper, and parsley.

In a large pot, bring the chicken broth to a boil. Slowly add the grits in, whisking the whole time. Turn the temp down to a simmer and cook for 1-2 minutes. Put all the ingredients from the shrimp bowl into the pot. Stir well and let cook for 5 minutes. Add butter, white cheddar, and parmesan. Garnish with several of the shrimp.

Check seasonings for salt and pepper.

* I added Fresh Corn & Bacon this past time*
