KEYS SHRIMP AND CHEESE GRITS

Simply Delicious!

My favorite shrimp cleaning tool.

Cheesy goodness!

  • 1/2 C half and half
  • 1  1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1  1/3 C uncooked quick-cooking grits
  • 1  1/2 C (6 ounces) shredded sharp white Cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 C (1  1/2 sticks) butter
  • 1/2 C dry white wine
  • 1   1/2 pounds large (21 to 25 count) Shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/2 C chopped green onions (save a few for garnish)
  • Cracked pepper
  • additional cheese for garnish

Bring 4 cups water, the half & half and salt to a boil in a large saucepan.  Gradually stir in grits.  Reduce heat and simmer 7 minutes or until thickened.  Remove from heat, stir in cheese and set aside, covered.

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add wine, bring to a boil and boil 2 minutes.  Add shrimp; cook 2 minutes or until shrimp turn pink.  Stir in onions and cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds.  Remove from heat.

Spoon cheese grits into 4 bowls, top with shrimp mixture, sprinkle with cracked pepper & a little salt;  garnish with cheese and a few green onion slices.  Makes 4 servings.

(You can make just the grits, they are delicious alone!)
