Since quite a few people land on this blog while searching for a recipe for shrimp and grits, here’s a repost from Patty’s family cookbook – just in time for Christmas dinner!
Shrimp and grits
Make enough for how many people are eating. Add salt to taste (use water to cook grits, not milk).
Add 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese to grits while cooking so it will melt
In a frying pan, mix:
- 1 clove minced garlic
- 1 TB Tabasco
- 2 TB lemon juice
- 2 TB butter
- 1/2 to 1 lb peeled raw shrimp
Cook 5-10 minutes, but don’t overcook the shrimp.
Stir in with shrimp before serving:
- 1/3 cup milk or cream
- 1/3 to 1/2 cup diced ham (not luncheon meat)
- sprinkle of parsley or chopped green onion
Eat and enjoy!
