  1. You’re pulling at my heartstrings. As a seafood chef I love shrimp and as a guy from the south, I love me some grits! Keep the southern seafood recipes coming!

    Even though I’m from NYC, I love grits. I’ve had this dish out in a restaurant, but I can’t wait to try your recipe, and make it at home. Looks delicious!

  3. Too funny because I just made shrimp and grits for the first time last weekend! I used bacon and it was really delicious, though I’m sure sausage would be the better choice. Yum!

  4. I’m not from the South, but I sure do appreciate shrimp and grits. We’ve made them before with yellow grits (adapted a Bobby Flay recipe), but I currently have some white grits in my cupboard that I’d love to put to good use…

  5. Oooah, this looks good. Something I could make for my mom and she would love being the huge shrimp lover in the family.

  6. @the Seafood Guy, for some reason we don’t blog much seafood here on BkS, but we’ll do our best to remedy that with some more southern seafood favorites.
    @Jen, it’s such an easy dish to make. Plus if you’re home you can have seconds.
    @kickpleat, I love it when recipes just pop into everyone’s head like that. The bacon angle sounds very good too–we’ll have to try that next time.
    @Kasey, I love white grits, but have a hard time sourcing them in NYC where everything is sold as polenta. It may just be visual, but I feel like white grits are creamier, and taste great with extra butter or cream.
    @Clarkie, Thanks! This is a great, easy dinner option especially for a shrimp lover.

    I’ve never had shrimp and grits, although grits and fried eggs are delicious by themselves. My husband doesn’t care for sauateed shrimp but I’m going to give it a try… will have to substitute andouille sausage with turkey brats. I will give it a try and let you know how it went… what bread do you add? I would like to use sprouted grain bread… we’ll see how it goes.

    I have been saving this recipe for a while and just made last night. Yum! Pretty much made as written, simple food turned into a fabulous meal. I wish i could post my picture, looks good enough to eat off the photo. Thank you for the recipe.
