    I just can't find grits in Canada & I learned to love them when I lived in S. Carolina years ago. A friends husband, who is a trucker just brought me some back from a trip to the south. So now I can try out this fabulous recipe. Combined with the shrimp, which is also one of my favorites, it's going to make me a delicious feast. Thanks & a big high 5

    This sounds delish, but I'm not a good cook, I doubt myself that it wont come out as good as it sounds.
