Shrimp and Grits

Shrimp and Grits- Printable Version


1 pound shrimp (peeled and de-veined)
2 tbsp. butter
4 roma tomatoes (diced)
1 lemon (juiced)
1 clove garlic (minced)
1 can chicken broth
1/2 tsp. basil
1/2 tsp. thyme
1/2 tsp. oregano
1-2 cups grits
4-8 cups milk
1-2 cups cheddar cheese (grated)
salt and pepper


  1. Saute minced garlic in 1 tbsp. butter. Add the diced tomatoes and saute for a few minutes. Remove mixture from pan.
  2. In a large pan, cook grits (according to package instructions) with milk instead of water. Add a little salt and pepper.
  3. Use the pan from step #1 and saute the shrimp in 1 tbsp. butter. Cook shrimp for a few minutes, or until they are slightly pink.
  4. Add the tomato mixture to the shrimp. Then add the lemon juice, broth, and herbs. Simmer on low.
  5. Add cheddar cheese to the grits after they have finished cooking. Stir until cheese is well mixed.
  6. Serve the shrimp and sauce mixture on top of a bed of grits.


Grits cooked in MILK! You will never cook them another way! The milk adds a delicious, creamy flavor to this fantastic dish.

You can always leave the cheese out of the grits if you’d like. I personally love the added flavor of the cheddar cheese.

Shrimp can be hard to find. I was able to find some frozen, wild caught shrimp at Walmart!
