Shrimp and Cheese Grits

Because these shrimp were purchased on a camping trip, I feel it appropriate to post here.

Made this a few times, gets better each time. The roux was a little sloppy and could have taken the heat off a little sooner....overall very good.Click image for larger version

Here you go:

Some shrimp
Grits...(never instant even I know that and I live in the "north")
Some spices
Little splash of cream
Stir it a bit...
Cook shrimp till done

There you have it

Oh and Texas Pete. Don't forget that. It's what really ties it together.

Ooh, wish we had seen it when we were in Charleston last year. Had our first meal of shrimp and grits while in SC and have made it every so often since. Good chow!

Ok....here you go. I guess I can elaborate...

1 1/2 pounds devained shrimp
2 tbs Cajun seasoning
1 tbs paprika
1tbs Italian seasoning
Freshly ground black pepper
Grits:
2 cups water
2 chicken bouillon cubes (l
2 tbs butter or margarine
1 cup quick grits not instant
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
3 1/2 ounces fresh extra-sharp Cheddar
Sauce:
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 tablespoon minced garlic I use Jar garlic
3 tbs all-purpose flour
1 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce

Shrimp....peel and devein the shrimp. combine Cajun seasoning, paprika, Italian seasoning and salt and pepper, to taste. Sprinkle the spice mixture over the shrimp to coat well and set refrigerate for 4-6 hours

Grits....bring water, chicken bouillon cubes and 2 tablespoons butter to a boil. Slowly add the grits, whisking often for 5 minutes or until they thicken a bit Add, cream, and cheese. Keep whisking for another 2 or 3 minutes until the grits become creamy.

Now saute the shrimp. In a large non coated pan if possible, melt 2 tablespoons of butter. Add minced garlic and stir for 30 seconds. Add in the spice-coated shrimp, and cook only until they're just done and tender. Don't overcook. Remove the shrimp from the saute pan and set them aside in a bowl.

Roux: reason for the non coated pan is to pick up the bits from the shrimp for the roux. 3 tablespoons of all-purpose flour and stir to make the badse Cook for 5-to 10 minutes until roux reaches a medium-tan color, then slowly add the chicken stock and heavy whipping cream. Whisk together and cook for 2 minutes, then whisk in Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce.

Combine and there you have it. Don't over cook the shrimp.....its hard to get the timing down to keep the shrimp from getting cold or if like I do, cover them in foil they usually are overdone. The roux I think needs work, but it get better each time. I keep adding more hot sauce and worstishire I take them out just a tad early and let them finish in the foil so you don't get rubber shrimp.
