the grits were amazing but the shrimp were a little bland, I'm thinking that maybe some old bay seasoning would've helped the shrimp taste a little bit better.

I've been looking for a great shrimp/grits recipe full of flavor and have found it. Easy!! The only thing different I did was cook the grits in chicken broth as done in Savannah... Excellent.

Excellent recipe. We will definitely use this one in the future. Great served w/seasonal vegetables. Thanks!
