Spicy Shrimp and Grits

Spicy Shrimp and Grits is the ultimate food, and a classic dish found in lowcountry cuisine. They are a staple food here, and are served for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Shrimp and Grits are a classic dish found in lowcountry cuisine, which is cooking traditionally associated with the South Carolina Lowcountry and the Georgia coast.  They are a staple food in this area of the south, and are served for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  Spicy Shrimp and Grits is the ultimate food.

If you have never had grits before, this is an excellent way to try them out.  This recipe gives you creamy, cheesy grits that are good to eat all by themselves, but with veggies and sauce they are out of this world.  Grits generally don’t have much of a flavor by themselves, and when cooking them, be sure to keep your eye on the pot it will boil over very quickly if you don’t stir it often.  Trust me, after eating this delicious meal, you don’t want to be scraping burnt grits off your stove top.

I like to add the bacon back into the veggies at the end with the shrimp, but you don’t have too.  I also like to add in a bit more hot sauce to make sure they have some kick.  But, the real secret ingredient in my version of this southern classic is the evaporated milk.
