Shrimp and grits is a southern classic that proves that grits aren’t just for breakfast. And this easy version can be ready in just 15 quick minutes. So, when you need a good meal in no time, this dish is the perfect choice. With grits as the base and corn, tomatoes, roasted red peppers, shrimp and bacon on top, you have a complete meal with this single recipe.


Select ingredients:


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the shrimp and cook 1-2 minutes per side until opaque and cooked through. Season with the salt and pepper, if desired.
  2. Add the roasted red peppers, diced tomatoes and corn. Cook until warmed through. Remove from the heat.
  3. Add the contents of the instant cheddar grits packets to a medium bowl. Add boiling water and stir.
  4. Divide the grits into serving bowls. Top with the shrimp mixture and sprinkle with the bacon bits. Serve immediately.

Recipe Tip: Substitute water with boiling chicken broth for added flavor. Another item that can seriously add some flavor is onion. So, grab a Shuman Farms Real Sweet® onion, dice it and add it to your skillet while cooking the shrimp.
