Although it’s not a typical Bostonian staple, a bowl of warm grits is truly one of my favorite comfort foods. Especially when made with a little milk and cheddar cheese. MMMMmmm….mmmm.
A big bowl of steaming grits was one of my favorite pre-exam foods from back at my college days at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia.
And every time I visit the South, I try to get a dish with grits. On our recent trip to Charleston, South Carolina I enjoyed a nice bowl of grits topped with shrimp….and that was the inspiration for the recipe in this post.
Creamy and delicious. Pure bliss in a bowl.
I purchased some frozen e-z peel shrimp–and cooked the shrimp in a skillet with a little drizzle of toasted sesame oil–which I think makes everything smell and taste extra special.
To garnish–just a few green scallions. That is it, my friends. So good. Russ and I helped ourselves to a bowl and a half.
Here is the recipe if you’d like to give cheesy grits and shrimp a try! And, of course, I hope you make it a GREAT week!
