WHY WE LOVE OUR SHRIMP AND GRITS

There’s nothing better than diving into a bowl of Southern comfort food, and that’s exactly what our Shrimp and Grits delivers. The grits

  • Shrimp: Fresh or frozen, peeled or unpeeled, deveined or veined, we accept any for this recipe! Our suggestion, though, and you can’t go wrong, is Locals Seafood Shrimp carried right at The Market.
  • Grits: We do recommend you use stone-ground grits. Whether they are white or yellow is based on preference. We recommend Old Mill of Guildford Stone-Ground Grits; they are everything you could want.
  • Substitutions or Add-Ins:
    • You can interchange broth, milk, and water when cooking your grits. Just make sure the quantity stays consistent with the recipe.
    • Add mushrooms or peppers with shrimp while cooking to add some veggies.
    • Mix it with your favorite Cajun seasonings, chili powder, and cayenne, or top it with hot sauce.

HOW TO COOK GRITS

This can be a controversial subject and one we don’t take lightly. The grits are the soul of this dish, so getting them right is imperative. Everyone has their own way, and we’d love to know yours.

The Ingredients

Instructions

Instructions:

  • In a medium bowl, season your shrimp with Summerfield Farms Steak and Burger Seasoning and your favorite Cajun seasoning. Set to the side.
  • In a medium pot over medium-high heat, add 2 cups of beef bone broth and 2 cups of milk. Allow the liquid to come to a gentle boil before adding the grits.
  • Whisk the grits and liquid together until combined, then simmer for 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat, cover, and set to the side. They will finish softening while you cook the rest of the meal.
  • Next, cook three strips of bacon until crispy in a non-stick pan or cast-iron skillet. Once done, set it to the side, but leave at least two tablespoons of grease in the pan.
  • In the same pan, add the seasoned shrimp to the bacon grease. Allow to cook for about 2 minutes per side.
  • Add the jar of Sarge's Shrimp and Grits Sauce to the pan. Stir continuously until the sauce melts and mixes thoroughly with the shrimp.
  • Immediately serve, laying grits, smothering shrimp and sauce, and chopped bacon bites.
  • Top with sliced green onions, and ENJOY!

Notes

1. Serve immediately to maintain shrimp tenderness and prevent grits from solidifying upon cooling.
2. Leftover grits can be reheated on the stovetop with water and whisked to restore texture. I suggest gently microwaving your shrimp to reheat, but avoid overcooking.
3. Use water instead of chicken broth for grits.
4. Quick cooking grits save time, though the texture may differ from stone ground.
5. Yellow or white grits can be used interchangeably.
6. Customize shrimp with additional seasonings or serve with hot sauce.
