Here's a classic Southern dish reinvented as a gourmet snack! Eating an entire bowl of shrimp 'n' grits can leave your feeling overly full, bloated and like a glutton. These tasting spoons are the perfect size to get your comfort food fix on without all the guilt. The bacon sprinkles add a nice meaty flavor and you can add as little or as much heat as you'd like to suit your own taste. 


Step 1: Ingredients


1/2 cup stone ground grits

8-12 uncooked shrimp- tails on

1/2 milk

1 tbsp butter

1 1/2 cups water


1 teaspoon oil

4 strips of organic bacon

2 green onions 

1/2 cup white cheddar cheese

Tasting Spoons
i am curious...what exactly is grits?...i've never seen it here in Australia
Grits are ground up corn. It's similar to the consistency of cream of wheat. <br><br>I wonder why they aren't available in Australia or if you just call them something else?
oh, perhaps they are under another name :) thanks <br>PS i like the way you presented that dish, it looks really good :)
Tried these at a restaurant in Scottsdale - Rendezvous. They came in a bowl, must have been 5 lbs of grits. Very yummy but not nearly as cool as yours. Nice and as always pro presentation.
Thanks papajon! We'll have to whip up a batch next time we get together. :)
I love shrimp grits, and this looks awesome.
Agreed! Looks delicious and you presented beautifully!
Thanks. I just figured out how to make some cool designs out of lemons. I'll try and post something soon. :)
Amazing idea and fantastic presentation. :D
Thank you!
