Shrimp and Grits | This dish mixes flavor-packed shrimp, bacon, mushrooms, green onion, and garlic with creamy cheese grits. It’s perfect for brunch or for dinner. The recipe came from Bill Smith, executive chef at Crook's Corner, the landmark Southern restaurant in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
after visiting Charleston last fall, I fell completely in love with shrimp & grits and more or less ordered it at every restaurant we went to. it's never quite as good at home though, so I'm always searching for that particular recipe that really knocks it out of the park for me. this one was pretty close to great though, but I chose to skip the bacon. just feels overkill.
This is shrimp and grits. Basically, if you're eating grits for breakfast, you eat them with butter (and cheese, if you're like me :3). If it's any other time of day, you put shrimp in it. Or andouille sausage. Or, in this recipe, BOTH.
