Shrimp and Grits

My mom came for a visit this weekend. We'd both been drooling over this recipe for a while and wanted to try it out.

Coincidentally, I had shrimp and grits for the first time in Charleston with my mom. I'm digging the cute clothe bag these came in.

Cook up 1 cup of grits according to package directions. Season with a little salt and pepper. When done, stir in 3 tbsps of butter and 1 cup of grated cheddar cheese.

Meanwhile, cook 6 slices of bacon. Remove from pan but retain grease. Cook 1 lb shrimp in bacon grease until pink. Add in 1 minced large garlic clove, 1/2 C sliced scallions, 2 tbsp chopped parsley, 4 tsps lemon juice, and cooked bacon. Cook for 3 more minutes.

Spoon shrimp mixture over cheesy grits. Enjoy. Be comforted. Feel like you're in the south even though you're probably not.
