LOOKING for: Shrimp and Grits, a better one than this pls

18 years ago

I know we have some goood Southern cooks round here. I am looking for a shrimp and grits recipe with a bit more pizazz than this one. I don't care for green pepper to eat but I'd put it in for flavor. Any other thoughts?


Shrimp and grits, with shrimp, cooked grits, and bacon and tomatoes.


2 to 3 slices bacon

grits, for 4 to 6 people

1 to 1 1/2 pounds shrimp

1 small onion, finely minced

1 can (14.5 ounces) crushed tomatoes with juice

1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper, or to taste


From McGentry

Cook 2-3 slices bacon until done but still tender, set aside. Prepare grits per directions, adding a small finely minced onion before starting cook time, clean shrimp, when grits are almost done, chop shrimp into halfs, crumble up bacon and toss both into grits.
