This recipe is amazing and very easy. I live in the Lowcountry of South Carolina where shrimp and grits is a mainstay and this one is by far the best. Also a healthier recipe than most since it omits the usual cream and bacon.
Shrimp and Grits
- 2 pounds frozen, peeled and deveined large shrimp
- 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
- 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/4 cup butter or margarine
- 2 garlic cloves, pressed
- 1 cup chicken broth, divided
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon hot sauce
- 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour

- Thaw shrimp according to package directions.
- Combine Cajun seasoning, Italian seasoning, and paprika; toss together seasoning mixture and shrimp.
- Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add garlic, and sauté 1 minute. Add shrimp, 3/4 cup broth, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce; cook 5 minutes or just until shrimp turn pink. Remove shrimp with a slotted spoon, reserving broth mixture in skillet.
