Shrimp & Grits Review

From time to time (okay, pretty often) I'm inspired to try out recipes that I've discovered amid Bloggerville.  This is one of those recipes.  Now, folks, I'm new to shrimp and grits as they've not caught on in South Texas.  However, I think I've been missing out because they were totally awesome.  The hubs (he's from Romania) is used to cooking with polenta which to me is similar to grits, in a way, so this was right up his alley.  The kiddos, however, I expected to protest, BUT they did not.  Even mon petit gobbled her grits right up. ; )

My pictures did not do this meal justice so I'll just share one, but please hop on over to Miz Ellen's page and check out her pics.  She gives images from start to finish.

The adjustments I made were minor and mainly due to the fact that Corpus Christi does not sell "good grits"...mostly only the quick cooking kind so I had to make due.  I added some heavy cream along with my shredded cheddar in addition to a little bit of grated Parmesan, only about 1/3 cup of that.  The results were impressive considered my sub par grits ;)  

Tell Ellen hello from the Kitchen Witch.

Thanks for the mention -- glad you liked the shrimp and grits. I like to find stone ground grits from a small gristmill whenever possible, but when I can't I just use what they have at my supermarket. I am happy that your kiddos liked it!
