Cheesy Shrimp and Grits

Healthy Fact of the Day

Grits are made from ground corn, which is a good source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals like iron, magnesium, and B vitamins. Combining grits with shrimp provides a balanced meal with protein, carbohydrates, and healthy fats.

Ingredients

 

  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup stone-ground grits
  • 1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 4 slices bacon, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 green onions, sliced (for garnish)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

 

Instructions

 

  1. In a saucepan, bring the broth to a boil over high heat.

  2. Slowly whisk in the grits and reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the grits are thick and creamy.

  3. While the grits are cooking, cook the diced bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crispy. Remove the bacon from the skillet, reserving the bacon grease.

  4. In the same skillet with the bacon grease, sauté the shrimp and minced garlic for 2-3 minutes, or until the shrimp turns opaque and pink.

  5. Remove the shrimp from the skillet and set aside.

  6. Once the grits are cooked, stir in the shredded cheddar cheese and heavy cream until the cheese is melted and the mixture is smooth.

  7. Fold in the cooked shrimp and crispy bacon.

  8. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  9. Garnish with sliced green onions before serving.
