Back to making meals.... lemony shrimp and grits

I love eating out.  I love going to new places that I haven't tried before.  I love finding little places that use local food and going there. 

But it's only good for so long before I'm ready to eat at home again.  Last night I made Lemony Shrimp and Grits.

3/4  c grits
3 c water
1/4 c parmesean cheese
3 TBSP butter
1 1/4 c shrimp
2 cloves garlic
pinch cayanne pepper
juice of half a lemon

Bring the water to a boil.  Reduce to medium heat, whisk in grits and stir, with a pinch of salt and pepper.  Stir until they are cooked, 5 minutes.  Add parmesean and 1 TBSP butter.   remove from heat, cover to keep warm.

In a large skillet, melt 2 tbsp of butter over medium high heat.  

Season shrimp with salt, pepper and cayanne. 

Add the garlic and seasoned shrimp to the butter and toss until the shrimp are cooked through, 3-4 minutes.

Remove from heat and add 3 TBSP of water to the butter/garlic yumminess.  Add the lemon juice and stir to coat the shrimp.

Serve the shrimp over the grits. 


A huge thanks if you stopped by from Eat at Home!
