      This recipe was delicious and easy to make! I was making this for my boyfriend and at first he thought shrimp and grits were an odd combo until he had some. That made a believer out of him! My favorite part of this meal was when the delicious herbs mixed in with the creamy grits! yum!

      Divine! My family loved this. Quick to prepare even using frozen shrimp as I did. Defrosts easily under lukewarm water. Will make again. Great entrée to go along with my red beans and rice.

      Yummy! My changes were olive oil instead of butter, less basil but bam-kicked up the other spices. Used red pepper flakes instead of ground red and i added some ketchup into the pan about 1/4 cup or more with just a little water to make more of a sauce. Think this was a nice addition. Will make many more times. Served with small salad and mashed potatoes. Mmmmmmm!! Thanks!!!
