A shrimp breakfast...from my old site. Some days I just miss Charleston.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, sprinkle the shrimp with lemon juice, salt and cayenne and set aside. Heat the bacon grease in a skillet and saute the onion and pepper over medium heat until the onion begins to become transparent (about 10 minutes).
  2. Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and stir constantly for about 2 minutes, until the flour begins to brown. Add the shrimp and about 3/4 cup of liquid, stirring constantly and turning the shrimp to cook evenly.
  3. Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes until shrimp are cooked through and the gravy is uniformly smooth, thinning with a little extra liquid if necessary.
  4. Serve immediately over the hot grits.
  5. and I'll be right over.
