Shrimp and grits is one of those classic Southern dishes with about a thousand variations. We add one more by grilling the shrimp.

grilled shrimp with grits


1 cup stone ground grits

4 cups water

3 tbsp butter

¼ cup crème fraiche

Salt and pepper to taste

1 lb uncooked shrimp, peeled and deveined

2 tbsp Cajun dry rub

Bamboo skewers, soaked in water for at least 15 minutes


Prepare grill for medium-high heat cooking.  Place a medium saucepan on the grill grate, add water and allow to heat for 10-15 minutes.  Add grits and simmer for approximately 10 minutes until water is full absorbed.  Add butter, crème fraiche and salt and pepper to taste.

To prepare the shrimp, place 6-8 on each skewer.  Season both sides with Cajun dry rub.  Place on the pre-heated grill and cook 3-4 minutes per side until they turn pink.  Poor grits into a shallow bowl, top with shrimp and serve immediately.
