2 cups grits
1 pound jumbo shrimp
Link of good quality smoked sausage
There are so many different ways to prepare shrimp and grits and this is one of the more simple recipes.
Bring three cups water to a rapid boil, salt to taste, and add in 2 cups grits stir then decrease heat, add butter, cover, and cook for about 20 to 25 minutes until nice and creamy. Stir in the desired amount of cheese.
Peel and rinse shrimp then season with salt, pepper, old bay and set aside
Cut smoked sausage into bite-size pieces and sautee on medium heat until brown on both sides. Drain excess oil from skillet and add 2 tablespoons butter, sautee shrimp until pink then squeeze in lemon juice and sprinkle on parsley. Toss in the sausage then spoons over top the hot cheesy grits.
I’m not usually specific as to the number of spices, herbs, condiments added to a dish as I believe that you should trust your judgment more than the specifics of any recipe.
For those who wanted to know how I get my eggs so fluffy, I add a tablespoon or two of milk to them and whisk really well. Cook gently in a buttered skillet on low/med heat.
