Ingredients

How to make it

  • Prepare the grits according to the recipe using th full amount of cheese.
  • Season to taste, but lightly, with Tabasco, a very little of nutmeg, and white pepper.
  • Hold in a warm place or in the top of a double boiler over simmering water.
  • Peel the shrimp, rinse, and pat dry.
  • Dice the bacon and saute lightly in the skillet; the edges of the bacon should brown, but the bacon should not become crisp.
  • Add enough peanut oil to the bacon fat in the skillet to make a layer of fat about 1/8 inch deep.
  • When quite hot, add the shrimp in an even layer; turn the shrimp as they start to color, add the mushrooms, and saute about 4 minutes.
  • Turn occasionally and add the scallions.
  • Add the garlic through the press and stir around.
  • Then season with lemon juice, a dash or two of Tabasco, and parsley.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Divide the grits amoung four plates; spoon the shrimp over and serve immediately.

    Made an almost identical recipe Wed. It is so good it makes your tummy say howdy! The only difference was halved cherry tomatoes instead of mushrooms. Everyone must try this!
