Excellent recipe; recently I substituted one (1) tablespoon of lemon dill butter sauce for the lemon juice and garlic. My wife and 8-year-old daughter called it "excellent!"
I made this dish and I absolutely loved it. I realize that everyone has different taste preferences, and may not match what you expect. But I've had shrimp and grits previously while dining out in South Carolina, and it was pretty close. I'm a bachelor, so this is not an overly complicated meal to whip up.
Made this recipe according to the recipe except for one change; used Colby cheese instead of cheddar. Was loved by all, even my 95 yr old boyfriend’s mother. Will definitely make it again!!!
I LOVE this recipe but don’t add salt or pepper. I find it to be too salty since the cheese, bacon, and onions are all salty.
My hubby is crazy for Shrimp and Grits and always orders it when offered wherever we eat out. So I knew when I saw this recipe I'd have to make it for him. It did not disappoint ! His eyes rolled back and I knew I had a winner! This will become one of those recipes I will keep forever and make often. Thank you for sharing!
Didn't use bacon because hubby is vegetarian but it was still great! 30 min including asparagus.
My sister made this for my last day visiting her. They were the best tasting grits (and shrimp) that I've ever had. EVER!
I made this last night and thought it was awful! I live in Louisiana and know how good real Shrimp and Grits taste.
Ok ... I can't believe I made this meal .... Freaking Delicious... and I'm saying that !!!! They loved it
This recipe is wonderful! I didn't have cheddar cheese, so I used Colby Jack blend. Also, I added smoked sausage pieces when I cooked the bacon. Will definitely be making this again.
This is easy to make and super tasty. You won't be disappointed
So good and super easy!!!
Easy to make, taste awesome. I don't cook but made my wife's day with this meal. Thank you.
This was amazingly delicious. My husband loved it, and it was easy to put together.
This recipe was so simple and my family loved it! I did use less cheese, but other than that I followed the recipe and this dish was amazing.
This was delicious!!!
Out of this world! The cheese is just the right amount, don't change a thing!
My 36-year old son often orders shrimp and grits at various restaurants. I prepared this meal last night and he said that it was every bit as good as the shrimp and grits he has ordered for years at restaurants. I didn't change the recipe at all.
This was easy and delicious! I did use the smoke Gouda, and also sautéed garlic in a little white wine. I also substituted chicken andouille sausage, since I didn't have any bacon. It added a nice smokey flavor with just a little heat! Will definitely make this again! It tasted like I worked much harder than I did!
a new family favorite!
Made the Shrimp and Grits at my Niece's Christmas Brunch and it was a huge hit! There were people there that said they don't eat grits; tried it and much to there surprise liked it. My granddaughter who is not a fan of grits also said she enjoyed eating the shrimp and grits. This will be a standard at the next Christmas Brunch. Thanks for the recipe
Easy, good meal! Came together in a flash! Only sub I did was use turkey bacon. The grits were amazing!
Wonderful weeknight meal; fast and flavorful. The whole family loved it. I would try the grits again with smoked gouda as one other reviewer suggested. I think you could serve the shrimp on polenta, rice, orzo or any grain you choose. This got added to our "definitely" make again list. We had a citrus salad which was a nice contrast.
This was amazing! I made almost exactly as is except that I cooked after I had added the last 4 ingredients to the pan so that I did not overcook them. I will definitely be making this again sometime. This recipe is simple, delicious, and I would recommend it to anyone.
my first attempt, I overcooked the shrimp and it turned out a little chewy. Next time I will start the garlic, onion, parsley mixture first, then add the shrimp and a half cup of white wine and simmer until done. Worcestershire and lime juice last. I agree with the smaller amount of smoked gouda suggestion. This is a real rib sticker already with all the bacon grease and butter. I will definitely try this again. It was really good in spite of my errors.
My boyfriend and I tried this recipe last week. I love Shrimp and Grits and it is one of my favorite Southern dishes. We found the recipe is really easy to navigate and we made one of the best Shrimp and Grits dish. It was very cheesy, creamy and tasty. We definitely will make it again. Thank you!
This really is easy and delicious, and I'm not a great cook. Someone else said the 2 cups of cheddar was too much, but I like it! So far I've used the really good stone-ground yellow grits that I bought on vacation in Charleston, SC this summer, but I'm sure the recipe is good with regular grits too. I didn't have any Worcestershire, but I thought it was fine without.
This recipe is amazing...BUT I think 2 cups of cheese is way too much. After making this a few times, I've cut the cheese down to 3/4 cup. I also prefer smoked Gouda (although cheddar is still tasty :). Finally, it's probably obvious from the recipe, but make sure you coarsely chop the bacon before you saute it! The first time I made this recipe, I cooked the bacon first and then crumbled it. The grits weren't nearly as tasty :)
This is the best stove-top recipe I have ever tried. I have a high failure rate trying out entrees that are cooked on the stove (as opposed to baked, casseroles, etc.), but I feel like a professional cook after my great success with this dish on the first try! And, it only took 30 min to prepare from start to finish. Delicious and easy, even for a terrible cook like me!!
I've found many good recipes on the internet but this is the first time I've ever taken the time to write a review. This is one of the best dishes my husband and I have ever made. I never thought I cared much for grits but this recipe changed my mind. I highly recommend it!
This is the best Shrimp & Grits recipe ever. I know someone that won the Shrimp & Grits Contest on Jekyll Island, Georgia with this recipe. I make it often, and it is great to prepare for guest. It's great with a tossed salad and garlic toast.
I have prepared this 4 times now, once for 2, once for 4, once for 12 and now I am taking it to a pot luck. It is awesome!
