So delicious! I use a combo of red and green bell peppers, add a few minced garlic cloves in the grits, use one can of low sodium chicken broth and the rest water. You only need about half the amount of butter that it calls for. I use Dixie Lily yellow quick grits since it's hard to find regular, and they work great just with less simmering time. I usually add chopped fresh parsley and sometimes crumbled bacon as recommended by a previous reviewer. I like to serve it with a tomato/cucumber/feta salad. Mmmmm, mmmmm, good!

Can seafood broth be substituted for the chicken broth?

bmcole760, you would leave the shrimp raw. When you mix it with the hot grits, it will begin to cook and, thus, pinken ever so slightly. The shrimp will cook through in the oven. Good luck!

Do you cook the shrimp before putting in the oven? Or leave it raw?
