Creamy Shrimp and Grits

Creamy Shrimp and Grits

I didn't grow up eating shrimp and grits. I did grow up eating cheese grits with my fried fish though. It's a perfect combination so it's no surprise that shrimp will pair well with grits also! The seasonings gives this dish so much flavor so don't skimp on them. 
I will admit that I was not fond of the scallions in this dish. I am usually a huge fan of onion but for some reason it just did not go well with this dish in my opinion. So I will say it's optional!


1 lb of bacon

 3 Cut Scallions (optional)

Shrimp Seasoning:

10-20 pieces of shrimp

1 Tsp Lemon Pepper Seasoning

1/2 tsp Garlic Powder

1/2 tsp Onion Powder

1/4 tap Smoked Paprika

Pinch of Creole Seasoning



1 1/2 Tsp Black pepper and Salt

1 Tsp Creole Seasoning

1 Cup grits

2 1/2 cup of chicken broth

1/2 cup heavy cream

1 1/2 cup cheddar cheese

2 tbsp butter


1. Cut up bacon into pieces, fry in a skillet and remove.

2. Add shrimp to skillet and cook them. Remove

3. In a saucepan, add the chicken broth, 1/2 cup of cream, grits and then cook. After they have cooked, add butter, cheese and creole seasoning.
