Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x12 inch baking dish.
  2. Bring chicken broth and salt to a boil in a large saucepan over high heat. Stir in the grits, return to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low, and continue cooking for 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. Meanwhile, melt the margarine in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the green onions, green pepper, and garlic; cook until the peppers have softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the shrimp, and cook until they begin to firm.
  4. Stir the Monterey Jack cheese, 3/4 cup Cheddar cheese, shrimp and vegetable mixture, canned tomatoes, and black pepper into the grits; pour into prepared baking dish and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until the cheese is bubbly and beginning to brown, 30 to 45 minutes.

This is a great idea ... I have seen this recipe before but it's always with the shrimp mixture served separately on top. I have to comment on the reviewer who said to substitute cornmeal for grits because they were the same thing. They're not! (I'm a southerner). It's true that both are made from corn but they are ground and processed completely differently and often made from different parts of the corn kernel. Supermarket cornmeal is much more finely ground; boiling it up will basically give you polenta. It's good, but that's not what the recipe calls for. Grits are much more coarsely ground and have a distinctive chewiness when cooked.

Use THREE cups of chicken broth to ONE cup of grits - NO NEED TO BAKE! -after all ingredients are combined in the grits pot, add shrimp and eat after they turn pink - super delicious! We use Ro*tel tomatoes for a spicy kick.

YUM! My husband and I discovered a love for shrimp and grits on visits with our friend in Charleston. We've tried a few different variations, but like this one the best. Based on things we loved from other recipes, we have modified this one a bit. I use half chicken broth, half water, no salt, and I add mushrooms and FRESH chopped basil with the shrimp mixture. The basil really adds to the flavor of this dish...but then again, we really love fresh basil!
