“Shrimp & Grits”


I apologize for not taking any other photos, but I didn’t know that I would be sharing this “recipe.” After taking the first bite, Matt said I needed to share it because it was so good. A very sweet compliment! Remember that recipes are just guides, so feel free to substitute based on what you have on hand. I so hope you enjoy it!


1 c Bob’s Red Mill GF Hot Cereal

2 c milk

1 1/4 c water

1/2 t salt

1 lb shrimp, peeled & deveined

Old Bay

Roasted garlic, mashed


Mixed greens

1/4 c roasted red pepper and artichoke spread (I found ours at Aldi)


Combine the cereal, milk, water, and salt in a saucepan. Bring to a gentle boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the liquid has absorbed.

Warm the butter, roasted garlic, and Old Bay in a sauté pan. Add the shrimp, cover, and cook for just a few minutes. Flip and finish cooking through.

To plate, lightly wilt greens and then divide hot cereal, shrimp, and spread over each bowl. We had leftover hot cereal that I ate for breakfast this morning. You eat based on your hunger level, so if you want more cereal or shrimp, go for it!

**Suggestions: use actual grits, leftover rice or oatmeal. This would taste amazing with poultry, pork or leftover steak.

If you try it, please comment and let me know what you think!
