My husband LOVED this, but he loves shrimp and grits. I would probably make it again just because my husband devoured it and I appreciate the low ingredient count, but it comes in second to my all-time favorite shrimp & grits recipe. Tasso is hard to find so I substituted pancetta. Overall, a good one. Thanks for sharing!
I added garlic, and red instead of green peppers. I had no ham, so I used bacon instead. Wonderful. Oh, and I cooked the grits in my rice cooker.
I liked that it was not a long ingredient list and I had most of the items already. The taste was good as well. My kids even enjoyed it. However, my sauce did not thicken so I didn't like the texture.
It was okay the shrimp was delicous hut the sauce was to milky!
