Ingredients

How to make it

  • In a bowl, sprinkle the shrimp with the lemon juice, salt, and cayenne and set aside.
  • Heat the bacon grease in a skillet and sauté the onion and pepper over medium heat until the onion begins to become transparent, about 10 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and stir constantly for about 2 minutes, until the flour begins to brown.
  • Add the shrimp and about 3/4 cup water or stock, stirring constantly and turning the shrimp so that they cook evenly.
  • Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, until the shrimp are cooked through and the gravy is uniformly smooth, thinning with a little extra water or stock if necessary.
  • Serve immediately over grits.
