Directions

  1. Bring 4 cups water to a boil in a saucepan and slowly whisk in grits, followed by salt and black pepper. Reduce heat to low and simmer the grits until tender and thickened, about 30 minutes.
  2. Stir 1 tablespoon unsalted butter into grits, season with more salt and black pepper if needed, and remove from heat. Cover pan and keep grits warm.
  3. Sprinkle shrimp with salt and black pepper. Melt 2 tablespoons unsalted butter in a skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir shrimp, garlic, and cayenne pepper until shrimp are pink and no longer translucent inside, 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Stir 2 tablespoons water into shrimp and mix in lemon juice and parsley. Sprinkle with more salt and pepper if desired.
  5. Portion cooked grits into serving bowls and top with shrimp and sauce; serve with lemon wedges.

I used quick cooking grits cooked following direction on package, then added butter, 1/4 cup romano cheese, 2 tsp lemon juice, salt & pepper. Next time more lemon in the grits. Omitted the cayenne from the shrimp. Still delicious!

I had no idea such an easy recipe could make such great shrimp & grits! I always thought a lot of cream had to be involved in order to make this dish tasty. This will be my new go-to recipe. I didn't have fresh parsley, so I used dry and it still came out great.
