  1. Place the bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir until crisp. Remove bacon and set aside, leaving the grease in the skillet. Reduce the heat to medium and add the onions to the pan. Cook and stir until transparent.
  2. In a small bowl or cup, stir together the flour and water. Mix in the evaporated milk. Pour into the pan with the onions; cook, stirring constantly, until gravy has thickened. Stir in the bouillon cube, garlic salt, chives, salt and pepper. Return the bacon to the skillet, and add the shrimp. Cook for 5 to 10 minutes, until shrimp are pink and opaque. Serve over grits, biscuits or rice.

Can't say we cared for this dish very much. We found it bland and greasy. Pretty much a waste of good shrimp.

All I can say is OH MY GOSH!! This dish was amazing. Even my boy child (7) loved it. I served it over grits and that is the only right thing to serve it over. It is very filling too.

The only reason it has a 4 star rating is because the fat content!!!! Otherwise.. it is soooo good. My husband likes it with grits instead of rice. Don't change a thing. You don't need to.

I followed the peer reviews and left out the salt altogether and it was delicious.

This was a very easy and tasty recipe. I did however make some changes due to not having ingredients recipe called for. I used 3/4 C beef broth, 3/4 C 2% milk inplace of the evaporated milk and ...

Great dish however rather than using garlic salt, I used garlic powder and salted to taste. Alot less salty. I also prefer the shrimp gravy mixture tossed with cooked pasta. Much more tasty!!!
