"Wish I could give 4 1/2 stars. Very simple to prepare with a good combo of flavors....just not over the top. Just enough "zip" to make it interesting. Only thing I added was a little more garlic (b..." See moreecause there is no such thing as too much garlic) and a splash of kitchen bouquet to enhance the gravy. Otherwise I follwed to the tee and served over creamy grits. Husband and son were pleased!"

Classic southern Shrimp and Grits (from a Northerners perspective anyway). This would also work well over rice or pasta."
