Recipe List

Shrimp and Grits


  • 4 Slices bacon, thick slice, cut crosswise into 1” pieces
  • 1 Lb medium shrimp peeled
  • 1 small clove garlic, chopped
  • ¼ Cup dry Sherry, White wine can be substituted
  • ½ Cup heavy Cream
  • 2 Tbsp. Minced fresh parsley leaves


Fry bacon in a medium skillet over medium heat until browned & crisp, then transfer with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain. Discard all but a thin film of bacon drippings from skillet.

Increase heat to medium-high and add shrimp, garlic, and three-quarters of the bacon to same skillet; sauté, stirring often, until shrimp are just pink, about 3 minutes. Add wine, scrape any brown bits stuck to bottom of skillet with a wooden spoon, & cook until alcohol has evaporated & reduced slightly, about 2 minutes. Add cream & cook, stirring constantly, until sauce has thickened, about 2 minutes more.

Prepare coarse-ground (stone ground) grits according to package directions. Spoon shrimp & sauce over grits. Garnish each serving with reserved bacon & parsley.

Serves 4.
