Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup grits
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 oz cheese cheddar, colby..
  • 3 oz shrimp = cleaned 6+ lg. about 1/4 lb
  • 1 tbs butter
  • 1/2 tsp Cottonmouth
  • 1/4 salt just a dash

Instructions

  • Sprinkle Cottonmouth all over shrimp. You can use what Cajun blend you have in your pantry, ugg..
  • Get a pan up to medium heat.
  • Slice 4 to 5 thin pieces of cheese by hand from end of regular ole cheese block. About 3/16 thick and 1”x2” rectangles. This way will keep cheese and grits from completely incorporating. Shredded is fine too.
  • Drop in butter a swirl till it melts.
  • Drop shrimp in butter and cook both sides about 3 minutes or until not translucent. Turn off heat.
  • Combine grits, water and salt in a bowl and microwave for 3 minutes 30 seconds.
  • When are finished place cheese over top and stir into the hot grits.
  • Pour shrimp and butter on cheesed grits bowl then mix in.
  • Garnish and tear it up!

Notes

Sub chicken broth for water for added “wowser”. I cooked scrambles eggs in the shrimp pan during the fiasco. Cottonmouth has plenty of garlic but you could use fresh cooked with the shrimp.
