  • Rinse shrimp and pat dry.

  • Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels.

  • Heat remaining bacon grease in the skillet over medium heat. Cook shrimp until they are bright pink on the outside and the meat is opaque, 3 to 4 minutes. Add bacon, scallions, parsley, garlic, and lemon juice. Saute for 3 minutes.

  • Spoon grits into a serving bowl. Add shrimp mixture and mix well. Serve immediately.

This was absolutely delicious. I used quick cooking grits instead of stone cut grits. I didn’t have a full cup of scallions so I made up the difference finely chopped onions. It turned out great! A southern classic! Read More

Cheese, bacon and shrimp--a winning combo. I used leftover grits reconstituted with a bit of water. Loved this recipe and took about 20 min to make. Definitely going to my favorites. Read More

12.30.19 Just a few comments on a recipe which we liked. After frying the bacon there was an awful lot of grease in the skillet so I did pour some off. After sautéing the shrimp in the remaining bacon grease PLEASE remove the shrimp from the skillet and then cook your veggies otherwise they ll be TOTALLY overcooked. Finally for sake of presentation do NOT mix everything together at the end simply spoon on the shrimp bacon and veggies to the grits and serve. Shrimp and grits has lovely presentation and you ll really screw it up by mixing everything together. Deducting a star for the above comments but you can feel comfortable that this recipe will turn out well. It tastes good we enjoyed it! Read More
