Ingredients :

  • 4 cups water
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup stone-ground grits
  • 2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 pound shrimp
  • peeled and deveined
  • 6 slices bacon
  • chopped
  • 1 cup thinly sliced scallions
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 large clove garlic
  • minced
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice
  • Methods :

  • Bring water to a boil in a pot. Add salt and pepper. Stir in grits; reduce heat and let simmer until water is absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in Cheddar cheese and butter.
  • Rinse shrimp and pat dry.
  • Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels.
  • Heat remaining bacon grease in the skillet over medium heat. Cook shrimp until they are bright pink on the outside and the meat is opaque, 3 to 4 minutes. Add bacon, scallions, parsley, garlic, and lemon juice. Saute for 3 minutes.
  • Spoon grits into a serving bowl. Add shrimp mixture and mix well. Serve immediately.
