shrimp/grits

Anyone have a recipe that's not overly complicated? I searched BGE still couldn't find what I'm looking for. After typing and reading that before posting I feel I should add I'm not cooking for U2.

Thanks

    I like to skewer the shrimp along with chorizo, then brush on a mixture of EVOO, rosemary and thyme. For the grits, I usually replace the water with heavy cream and chicken stock. Then stir in cream cheese toward the end. Here is a pic from awhile back. That was with some homemade chorizos that I had made (Steven Raichlen's Spicy Chorizo recipe)...

    Did you mean to hit disagree? We like it this way, but there are lots of different varieties. :)

    I like smoked gouda (?spelling) in the grits.

    Here is one I like, you can just substitute small shrimp for the sausage or place the shrimp on top after cooked.  Have a friend from Charleston who serves them with BBQ sauce on top.

    Here is the recipe.

    Grits, Cheese, Sausage, Baked, Richard Fl.

    This recipe is modified from the package of Jim Dandy enriched quick grits. Some Southerners will take offense to the "quick", but time is important when you are hungry.




    INGREDIENTS:
    4 Cups Water or Chicken Stock-I used stock
    1 tsp Salt
    1 1/3 Cups Jim Dandy Quick Oats
    1-2 Cups Shredded, Sharp Cheddar Cheese
    1/2 Cup Butter or margarine, I used butter
    1 1/4 Cups Milk
    4 Eggs, Beaten
    1/2 tsp Ground Red Pepper or a hot sauce of choice.
    12 Ozs Spicy ground sausage
    1/2 Onion, Diced




    PROCEDURE:
    1 Heat oven or BGE indirect to 350°F. I greased a 7 x 11 baking dish abd lined it with parchment paper.
    2 I have taken the sausage and onion and cooked, then drained the grease off.
    3 In a large saucepan combine the liquid, butter and salt. Bring to a boil. Gradually stir in the grits. Reduce the heat to low and cover for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally..
    4 Remove from heat and add 1 cup of cheese, sausage and onions, stir until melted. Add milk, eggs blended and pepper.
    5 Pour the mixture into a greased baking dish. I lined mine with parchment paper. Pour the remaining 1/2 cup cheese over the top.
    6 Bake at 350°F for 50-60 minutes until golden brown. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
    7 I like to take 1/2 inch slices the next morning and warm up and serve with eggs.

    I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for or not... but I make a version of Bobby Flay's Shrimp & Grits. It's not on the BGE, but there is no reason you couldn't.

    His recipe: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/bobby-flay/shrimp-and-grits-recipe/index.html

    That's funny...it's the one swmbo and I landed on. Great minds think alike...yours and I'm sure you know someone else.

    Well played!  :D


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

  • This is the recipe from our favorite local restaurant. I made my own tasso on the egg because I couldn't find it in town. http://www.wbir.com/life/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=1182

    This may not qualify as "not overly complicated" , but attached is a link to the recipe for Grits a Ya Ya from the Fish House in Pensacola.  My wife grew up there, and this is her all-time favorite dish, and I love it too.   And, if my endorsement doesn't hold much weight, it's also approved by @travisstrick. ;

    This is from Crook's Corner in Chapel Hill, NC. This recipe is absolutely fantastic. I first ate them during a trip last spring; my husband, who snorted when I suggested he order them, too, tried to eat the majority of my dinner. I've made them several times at home. 

    I don't think the egg would add much, though.

    It's going to be a Sunday Bloody Sunday for the Super Bowl. One of the teams will wind up at The Heartbreak Hotel. It will be a Sort of Homecoming for the victors. The Egg is like a Miracle Drug in that it works in Mysterious Ways. While they play in that City of Blinding Lights, the egg will have an Unforgettable Fire. Your food will be Even Better Than The Real Thing. Take Pride(In The Name Of Love) on this Beautiful Day!
