The Best You Ever Had Shrimp and Grits

Recipe from: Crys Kitchen



  • 1 - 2 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined 

  • 1/2 smoked sausage, diced

  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped

  • 1/4 cup green pepper, diced

  • 1/4  cup red bell pepper, diced

  • 3 tablespoons flour 

  • 1/4 cup white wine or more broth (I used Chardonnay )

  • 1 1/2 cups quick grits 

  • 1/2 stick of butter

  •  6 cups chicken stock or broth 

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream 

  • 2 cups  cheddar cheese (of your choice, I used a mix of colby jack,  cheddar, and parmesan)

Let's Cook!

  1. Get the grits started first: In a medium sized pot,  add in 4 cups chicken stock, and bring to a boil. Slowly whisk in the grits. Place the lid on, and cook on  low heat for 25-30 mins.

  2.  While the grits cook make the sauce: Heat a large skillet over medium/high heat. Add and melt half stick of  butter.

  3. Add the sausage and cook until  crispy about 4-5 minutes. 

  4. Stir in bell pepper and onions and cook until vegetables are soften.

  5. Sprinkle in the flour coating the vegetables and sausage.

  6. Stir for 3-4 minutes to allow the flour to cook out and make a roux.

  7. Slowly whisk in remaining chicken stock, and wine.

  8. Add in shrimp and cook for 5-7 minutes or until sauce thickens and shrimp are pink and opaque. 

  9. Time to finish the grits: Once the grits are thick, stir in heavy cream. Combined well, add in the cheese. Mix until cheese is melted. 

  10. Serve Sauce over hot and ready grits.
