Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 1 hr
Total time: 1 hr 5 min
Serves: 4


Ingredients

  • Grits:
  • 2 c milk
  • 3 c water
  • 2 tsp salt
  • ¾ c coarse grits (we used Bob’s Red Mill and they were delicious)
  •  
  • Spot Shrimp:
  • 1 lb spot shrimp (spot prawns), shell on
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 slices bacon, cut in ¼ inch strips (optional, but awesome) OR 3 Tbsp butter
  • ½ Vidalia onion, minced
  • 1 tsp flour
  • 1 c stock
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp Tabasco sauce
  • 1 Tbsp parsley or chives, minced

Directions

For the Grits

In a medium sauce pan, bring milk, water, and salt to a boil. Whisk grits into liquid and reduce to low heat. Cook for 45 minutes to 1 hour, whisking occasionally. Mixture will thicken and be creamy when done. Season additionally as needed.

For the Shrimp

In a small bowl, toss spot shrimp with olive oil. In a skillet heated over medium heat, briefly sear shrimp, no more than 1 minute on each side. Remove from pan. Render bacon until crisp and set aside with shrimp or melt butter in the pan. Sauté onion until softened and just starting to brown, about 3 minutes. Add flour, toasting for 30 seconds. Add stock, scraping up any brown bit in the bottom, and simmer to thicken slightly. Add Worcestershire, Tabasco and bacon, if using.

For Serving

Ladle grits onto plate, and top with spot shrimp. Spoon sauce over top, and garnish with parsley or chives.
