This was a delicious and simple dish to make. I followed this recipe almost exactly. Only made a few minor changes. I only made enough for one to start. I cooked the white grits according to the package and when they were done I put in a pat of butter and a good sprinkle of Parmesan cheese. I also added minced garlic to the onion, green pepper mixture. When the shrimp where done, I added a 1/4 cup of chicken broth (to loosen the bits from the pan). At the very end I added a handful of grated cheddar and a sprinkle of Old Bay to the shrimp. I wish I could say that my whole family loved it but alas...they dont like seafood. I, however, thought it was wonderful!!!
Good recipe - I didn't add any additional seasoning to the shrimp and for us it was a little bland. I couldn't bring myself to add a whole cup of cheese to the grits either - so overall, if you really want a flavor punch I think the other reviewers that ramped up the shrimp seasoning had it right. I'll do that next time, and will season the grits a little more to make up for the flavor lost by not adding a whole cup of cheese. Otherwise, it was pretty good. I am still trying to come close to the flavor of the shrimp and grits and I had at Pisces Rising in Mt Dora Florida. This doesn't quite capture the lushness of that dish.
LOVED this recipe! Nice, creamy, and easy and no tomatoes :) As always, I made a few changes but they were simple. I cooked the bacon whole and saved to sprinkle on top; added minced garlic to the pepper and onion, cooked that down and added about 2 TBSP of flour before adding the shrimp (which I increased to 2 lbs, jumbo-precooked); lastly I used water instead of chicken broth for my grits (personal preference). This recipe is a keeper for sure-Thanks!
Yummy! Hit with the whole family. I used chicken bullion and water since I didn't have broth. Green peppers are not my friend, so they were omitted. I used chopped green onions to replace the chopped onion and it added a lovely color. Also added old bay to the shrimp and a bit of cayenne. Tasted like it was a lot harder work than it was. Love that it's good for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
This shrimp and grits was so delicious and very easy to make! I added cajun seasoning to the shrimp to give it more kick!
Great base recipe. Careful with the bacon as it can make the shrimp component a little salty. Finished with a little chicken stock and milk (or cream). Added garlic, one chopped tomato, bottom of green onions. Used the tops of the onions for garnish.
The whole family loved this one.
