Awesome recipe! My daughter is home for the Holidays and we saw this in the magazine and gave it a try. She spent some time in Charleston this Spring and loved the shrimp and grits and this rates as better than what she remembered. We followed the recipe except we made grits with half water and half milk as I always do.

Well, I've eaten some wonderful food all around this big world but this is definitely one of the top. I kid you not. Chef Weaver has accomplished something with Southern comfort food that you experience in very good French cooking--perfect and sublime meshing of flavors. The grits and shrimp are both good enough to stand on their own for any meal but you put them together and the result is magic! Definitely comfort food extraordinaire. Of note, I couldn't find old-fashioned grits at the store so I used the 5-minute kind I normally use.

Made this for my mom's birthday dinner tonight and it was outstanding! I would highly recommend trying this soon!

I made this for my southern husband, who is a true foodie. It completely changed his opinion of my cooking skills! He and I both now list it as our favorite dish and enjoy it often. I have made it for entertaining as well, and it is a sure hit.

Yum! I reduced the quantity of grits by half, cooking for two, but kept the shrimp and sauce the same--no changes. Wonderful. Try this recipe!

We made this for dinner tonight and thought it was excellent. We didn't have bacon in the house so we used sausage. We will definitely be making this one again. Thanks for sharing.
