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!!!

Just terrific. What a fantastic way to use fresh herbs. I used dried bay(didn't have any fresh) and for some stupid reason I chopped it up with my other herbs, so I had to pick out the little dried bits when I was done. Thanks for this, I would totally make this again!

Umm. My lips are a still a little warm as I write this review! I used the minimum suggested amount of cayenne because I was having guests and it was perfect for everyone. It was also a nice use of fresh herbs. Another winning recipe BEV!

What a terrific recipe! I had this for dinner tonight and my husband absolutely loved it. This was so quick and easy and perfect for a weeknight meal, but it was also good enough to serve company. I would definitely recommend using fresh herbs for this if at all possible--they really make the dish. I made this exactly as written (using 1/4 tsp of red pepper). I wouldn't change a thing. My husband said he may have to request this for his birthday dinner from now on. Thanks for posting!
