Equipment
  • 1 Skillet
  • 1 pot
Ingredients
  
For the grits
  • 1 cup quick grits
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup nutmilk (hazelnut)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 can celery soup
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese shredded
For the shrimps
  • 6 slices smoked bacon
  • 1 pound large shrimps
  • 2 tsp cajun seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • 3 tbsp fresh parsley
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 3 green onions
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 cup chicken or vegetable broth
Instructions
 
  • Cook the bacon in a skillet on medium heat until crispy.
  • Remove the bacon from the pan and cut into small pieces, be sure to leave all the bacon grease in the pan as we’ll need it later.
  • Add 3 cups of water to a pot and bring to a boil, add the grits and salt. Cook on medium heat for 5-7 minutes.
  • Once up to temperature remove from the heat. Throw in the cheddar, nut milk, cream, and butter. Whisk thoroughly until smooth to make those perfectly creamy grits.
  • In a pan, sauté green onion, garlic, and sliced red bell pepper in the avocado oil on medium heat for 5-6 minutes.
  • Add the giant shrimp (ensure they are defrosted beforehand if you are using frozen shrimp) and add additional seasonings. Cajun seasoning, smoked paprika, and cayenne pepper.
  • Fry the seasoned shrimp on medium heat for 1-2 minutes or until browned.
  • To this pan, add the chicken or vegetable broth along with the sauteed vegetables and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Place the cheesy grits onto a plate and then spoon the sauce and some shrimp on top.
  • Finely chop some parsley and season, and finally, add some fresh lemon to the shrimp. You’re done!
