This was a very easy recipe with nice flavor. Living in Savannah, shrimp and grits is a staple, but even though my husband is a native and I've been here 5 years I had yet to find a recipe I wanted to try. This was it! My husband loved it and I would not hesitate serving to guests. Definitely better served over grits than rice. I used fresh garlic and half and half as that was what was on hand. Turned out great. Thanks for sharing.
Can't say we cared for this dish very much. We found it bland and greasy. Pretty much a waste of good shrimp.
My Husband flipped over this recipe. I did use the entire can of evaporated milk, subbed granulated garlic for the garlic salt, used Better than Boullion instead of the cube, added cayenne pepper, left out the extra salt and served over rice. He ate it all... I had ice cream for dinner. Thanks, HardCore-Mama... hubby was in hog heaven!
this was an easy recipe to make. for those who want a short-cut, replace the 'flour+water+milk' and beef bouillon cube with 1 can of cream of chicken/mushroom soup + 1 can water. works out the same.
I was really happy to find this recipe, but I had a few other things on hand I thought I'd throw into it: - equal parts fresh garlic and ginger (one clove)tossed in along with the onion. - quarter cup of white wine - added paprika for some colour - chopped half a tomato and added it in (i did this after tasting and found it lacking in a bit of sweetness, it turned out to be a great touch as it really complimented the sauce) -stirred in freshly chopped parsley at the end. Overall tasted great, I think next time I'll try giving it some heat with a chopped hot pepper and another dimension by adding fresh cilantro. My philosophy is always go with the fresh natural ingredients so I'd always go for a clove or two of garlic rather than the garlic salt or powder.
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.
