This is the first part of the Shrimp & Grits recipe. Start cooking your grits first as it will take longer to cook than the shrimps.
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup Grits
  • 1.5 cups Water
  • Dash of Salt
  • ½ cup grated Cheese (your choice what kind. I had cheddar this time)
  • Additional butter (optional)
Instructions
  1. Is a small pot, bring one and a half cups of water to boil.
  2. When the water is boiling, SLOWLY add the grits while stirring at the same time so you don't get clumps.
  3. Add salt and cook on medium heat for a couple of minutes while stirring constantly.
  4. Lower heat to low and cover pot. Let it cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring once or twice just to make sure it doesn't stick to the pan or clump up.
  5. Go prepare your shrimps while your grits cook.
  6. By the time you finish cooking your shrimps, your grits should be nicely thickened and well cooked by now. Just before plating, add the grated cheese and stir until it is all melted into the grits and the mixture is smooth and creamy.
