Simply Spicy Shrimp n Grits Instructions
- First cook about 1 and 1/2 cups of old fashioned grits. Follow package directions. I added cheddar cheese to your liking.
- While grits are cooking I seasoned my shrimp. Put them in a bowl with olive oil to coat. Then add black pepper, cayenne pepper, old bay, garlic powder and red pepper flakes. I eyeball the seasoning meaning a few dashes of everything.
- After seasoning my shrimp I cut a half of small white onion into slithers and chop up about 4 scallions.
- Heat a cast iron skillet and put enough olive oil in to coat the bottom then add a half stick of butter. Sautee onions and scallions on med heat until slightly softer. Salt n pepper them and put your shrimp in the pan after. Then add about 2 table spoons of cream of chicken soup which is salty so don't add any more salt. Add a spoon full of crushed garlic and u can add more cayenne and red pepper flakes depending on how spicy you want it. Lower heat, add another half of stick of butter and cover for 5ins.
- Once your shrimp have formed a C shape they are cooked. Your sauce should be thick and spicy. Serve your grits on a plate then spoon your shrimp n sauce over and enjoy
