  1. In a medium saucepan, bring the milk to a boil. Stir in the grits, and reduce heat to low. Cook, stirring occasionally, until silky, about 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil and butter in a skillet over medium heat. Saute onions until tender, then toss in shrimp. Season with salt and pepper, and cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until shrimp turn pink. Stir shrimp mixture into grits, and continue cooking for 10 to 15 minutes. Serve hot.

I agree with both reviews above - shrimp cook very quickly! Also, I am from/live in the Charleston area and agree that there must be bacon or sausage in this recipe! I am all for making recipes ...

While this is an ok variation on Shrimp-n-Grits, its not really a Charleston recipe. As with other commenters, true blue Charlestonians use bacon for the smoke flavoring which is fried and remo...

Im from/live charleston as well,and I agree with everyone about adding the bacon. Also, there's a little spot Downtown that adds Tasso Ham, Sausage, and Cheddar Cheese all topped off with Tasso ...
