uncooked shrimp, peeled and deveined

This was great! I added 1/4 cup more milk to the grits, as my grits label said 3 cups liquid to 3/4 cup grits - was glad I did that, or they would have been too thick. I added 1/4 tsp. salt + 1/4 tsp. pepper to the finished grits. I used 1 bunch chopped *green* onions instead of regular, along with 1 chopped red bell pepper, and sauteed that and the garlic before adding the shrimp. I added 1/8 cup white wine to the mixture while cooking. When the shrimp were finished, I sprinkled salt & pepper over it all, then served the grits over fresh greens to make them wilt a little bit, and added the shrimp to the top. Fabulous! Thanks for the recipe!
Since there were two components to this recipe, I had to average out my rating. I could only give 2 stars. Although the final taste of the grits were very good, I had to add 3/4 cup more liquid to have them come out correct. With 3 cups liquid, they would have finished hard instead of cooked through. With regard to the shrimp recipe, 1 onion is way too much onion. I liked the garlic but they really needed salt and pepper to elevate the taste. Garlic powder may have functioned better than minced garlic with the shrimp. A dash of hot pepper couldn't save them. I really wanted to like this and I think you've got a good start but, as written, your recipe didn't work for us. Thank you.
OMG One of the best dishes I have make in a long time. So good. I highly recommend. And so easy to make.
Wow !!!!! Good Stuff ! Being from the north I had never had shrimp and grits before, so I was really impressed at how easy and delicious these where. This recipe will now be in my rotation for sure.
These were really really good. I think the trick is to use real chicken stock, not the canned stuff. I had some stock that I froze last time I did a chicken and used it for this recipe. Delicious!
This recipe was delicious! Talk about a quick dinner to prepare!!! Only changes I made were to double the recipe as we have hungry teenagers and to bulk up a bit by adding small pieces of Keilbassa sausage. I would also like to add that adding a little more liquid was a great idea. It got devoured quickly! If you would like a more hearty dish, you might double the toppings (shrimp part) and keep the grits portion the same. Yummy and thanks for the recipe!
This is a wonderful recipe, my wife and I made it last night exactly as it was written. We used a pound of of large gulf shrimp which is perfect for the two of us. served it over the wonderful creamy, cheesy grits with a side of fresh buttered carrots.We will use this recipe again and again. Think You, (the husband)
Very good. I shouldn't have added any salt to the grits because they were a little too salty (I didn't try them before I salted and I knew better!).
