Shrimp and Grits – Amazing!!

February 20, 2010 by Kat  

From the Kitchen of: Kat

Took pieces of 2 different recipes:
– from Lisa W. and Carrie P., and made my own semi-copy-Kat


It’s delish… and I included pics (below) from when I made it last night (for 3rd time)!

Grits:

  • 1 C. Quaker Quick Grits (Editor’s Note: I couldn’t find any last night, and had to use “instant” vs. “quick”. Wasn’t too bad; I’d recommend the Quick Grits, though)!
  • 4T unsalted butter
  • ¾ C. Xtra sharp white cheddar cheese
  • ½ C. grated parm.
  • 1 tsp. (1/2 tsp.) cayenne pepper
  • 1 ½ tsp. Paprika
  • 1 T. (1/2 T.) Tabasco hot sauce
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Cook grits accd. to package directions [as you'll see, I actually made them in the Microwave in a measuring cup]

As grits are finishing, whisk in butter, cheddar, parm, cayenne, paprika, Tabasco

After all ingredients are incorporated, season w/salt & pepper

SHRIMP Portion:

  • 2 lbs peeled lg shrimp [Editor's Note: THIS recipe calls for Fresh Shrimp; I used cooked, frozen... just lessen the time if so!]
  • 2 tsp Cajun seasoning (I use old bay/cayenne)
  • 1 tsp dried Italian season
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 cup chix broth
  • 2 tsp worcetershire
  • 3T White Wine
  • 2T Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp hot sauce
  • 2 tsp all-pur flour
  • Green Onions
  • Mushrooms
  • Bacon bits

Combine cajun, italian sea, & paprika; toss mixture with shrimp

  • melt buter and garlic in skillet and sauté 1 min
  • add shrimp, ¾ cup broth, Worcestershire, hot sauce
  • add mushrooms
  • cook 5 min or until shrimp done
  • add White Wine & Lemon Juice
  • remove shrimp with slotted spoon, leave broth in skillet
  • whisk ¼ cup broth and flour, then whisk slowly to broth mixture to make “gravy”
  • add shrimp back in
  • Add cut up scallions
  • Add bacon bits, and serve over grits

(See, I made it in the micro!)

  1. Oh my goodness, that looks SO yummy! As soon as I figure out my new sleeping pattern I’m going to have to pick up some grits!
    The training for my new job went so well, and I start on graveyards tonight! I was aeven able to stay up all night last night, so hopefully the sleeping portion goes well. And I suppose the rest of it too. :) Hope your week is off to an awesome start Kat!
