Do you like Shrimp and Grits? If you do like shrimp and grits, you’ll love my Surf and Turf Shrimp and Grits.
It’s one of the most amazing combinations. If you’re picky about one or the other, then steak and cheese grits, shrimp and cheese grits, or extra steak and extra cheese grits…
You get the idea. However, I absolutely adore steak and shrimp.
I would like to think most Southerners do. Well, I guess that depends on where you got them from.
This is something I’ve asked my husband about 90 times since we married almost a decade ago.
Me: “Do you like grits?”
Every single time he says NO. When he actually had no idea. I think he just says that about anything he really either hasn’t tried or maybe had once and wasn’t sure about. He’s all about plainness, bless his heart. I do have to say, he’s always been pretty good about trying things for me. I’ve probably made shrimp ‘n grits maybe once or twice in the past ten years (one time with Gorgonzola, which was phenom, but that’s a post for later).
However, this time, he couldn’t resist because I slutted them out. That’s right.
I added steak on a whim, and the grits are so cheesy and just a little bit spicy. *Sssshhh, don’t tell Mark because I don’t think he noticed*.
Today he finally answered “YES” (after eating them, of course). I didn’t even intend on including steak with my shrimp ‘n grits, but it just happened. And it was beautiful.
These are hands down THE BEST grits I’ve ever had in my life. I know that sounds a bit self-inflating, maybe a bit dramatic, but you just have to know that. I can’t honestly say I know what the typical Southern Shrimp ‘n Grits recipe consists of, but this is now officially my version.
Cabot Sharp White Cheddar has become my current obsession.
