I finally did it. I have had Shrimp and Grits up and down the East Coast, and I finally gave a shot! I cooked them for myself and my family. As most recipes do, it turned out much easier than expected. Sometimes you just have to give it shot, I am glad I did. I found this recipe on the internet, it is actually by Bobby Flay. You already know this is going to be delicious…..
Shrimp And Grits
What you’ll need:
1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 cup grits
3 tbsp butter
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
6 slices of bacon, chopped
4 tsp lemon juice

Panfry the bacon and cut into small pieces. Then bring 4 cups of water to a boil, add salt and pepper. Add grits and cook for 20 to 25 minutes. Next pat shrimp dry and sauté them until the shrimp are pink in the bacon grease.
Add bacon, lemon juice, garlic, parsley and scallions to the shrimp and sauté for 3 minutes. When the grits are done, remove them from the heat and stir in the cheddar cheese..
