This turned out to be a good one dish meal. I chose this version of shrimp and grits because we were running low on food, but I had just enough ingredients to fix this for dinner. Using minced garlic from a jar, I approximated two cloves. In the future I would use a little less garlic, but if you actually use two cloves of fresh garlic, the flavoring may not be too strong. Overall this is a easy dish to fix and will will probably have it again sometime.
