My friend Amy recently posted this recipe for shrimp and grits that looked so delicious I knew I needed to make it as soon as possible. I had some frozen shrimp in the freezer and I've always wanted to try making grits at home, so it seemed perfect.
The grits could not have been simpler to make. I cooked them in chicken broth for added flavor and they were amazing. Grits in five minutes...what have I been missing all my life!?
We really enjoyed this meal, but next time I might try a different version. This was pretty light (no heavy cream like most versions) but it lacked the oomph we were looking for. It was also very saucy, which probably diluted the flavors. Next time I wouldn't add the cup of chicken stock at the end. Amy recommended another version and it's in the back of my mind for a special occasion (or the next time we buy shrimp).
