Shrimp and Grits Recipe
Shrimp and Grits - A Carolina Family Recipe
Grits aren't just for breakfast anymore. From humble beginnings, this fisherman's breakfast has attained gourmet status. With hundreds of recipes and each "chef" offering their unique spin to this classic, it can get pretty confusing. I have to admit that I have never tried a "Shrimp and Grits" that I didn't like, but sometimes simple is better. This recipe is from my family cookbook and is similar to some of the earlier recipes. It has it's own little additions but is still very tasy and very simple to make. I promise you will go looking for seconds.
1 ½ cups chicken broth
1 ½ cups milk
3/4 cup Palmetto Farms Stone Ground Grits
1 cup cheddar cheese
1/4 tsp. salt (or more to taste)
FOR SHRIMP TOPPING
1 cup diced bacon
1 lb . medium peeled shrimp
½ cup thinly sliced onion
1 cup thinly sliced green bell pepper
2 tsp. hot pepper sauce
Sliced green onions for garnish
Grated cheese for garnish
Bring chicken broth and milk to a boil. Stir in grits
and salt, return to boil. Cover and reduce heat to low. Cook 20-25
minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in cheese. Keep warm.
FOR SHRIMP TOPPING
Cook bacon in skillet till crisp. Remove
bacon and all but 2 tablespoons of fat. Add peppers and onions.
Cook till tender. Add shrimp and cook till pink. Return bacon. Add
hot pepper sauce. Add salt and black pepper to taste. Serve
shrimp mixture over warm grits. Garnish with green onions and
cheese. Makes 4-6 servings of shrimp and grits.
Thank you for getting back to me
so quickly. I will be purchasing more in the future and am letting
everyone in Northern Virginia know that your grits are AWESOME! I
have them for dinner, lunch, breakfast, midnight snack. They go good
with anything... sausage gravy, chip beef gravy, cheese, butter,
shrimp... need I say more?
stumbled upon Palmetto Farms Yellow Corn Grits years ago while on
vacation. I love incorporating fresh local ingredients into my menus
and Palmetto Farms stone ground grits are quite possibly the best
grits I have found! They are the only grits that I use for my shrimp
and grits! The deep earthy flavor of the corn really sets this dish
apart and makes it something to truly remember! My clients love the
fact that we use fresh local ingredients, and support local farmers!
Palmetto Farms Yellow Corn Grits are a staple in my kitchen and I
would recommend them to anyone looking for a truly exceptional
product! - Chef Christopher Rawlings | Gourmet2Go Catering
