"This was a great, simple recipe. I did use one South Carolina trick that you didn't mention--I cooked the grits in Chicken Broth rather than water, plus I added a little Half & Half to make the grits..." See more a little creamier. I used frozen jumbo shrimp-- Outstanding! This is definitely a Dinner Club-worthy recipe."
"I am giving this 5 stars because the shrimp mixture with the sauce is incredible and SO easy to make, however I used the Velveeta grits recipe the first time I made this and it was awful. As a Souther..." See moren girl who knows a thing or two about grits, I recommend you use real cheese, a dash of garlic, and some cayenne for your grits...cook them really low and keep adding water and/or milk until you get a nice, smooth consistency. I don't really modify the shrimp portion of the recipe, except for adding a little extra garlic and some turkey sausage (since shrimp is so expensive). I make this weekly and my family loves it! "
"This turned out great! I had a similar recipe in Charleston on a business trip and had a craving for this very dish. I did vary from the recipe by adding processed cheese (velvetta) instead of garlic ..." See morecheese. The shrimp mixture was plenty garlicy by itself. A definite keeper!"
