- In a separate pan, bring water, bouillon, butter and grits to a boil.
- Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 7 minutes.
- Remove from heat and stir in cheese, cover and set aside.
- Add 1-2 tablespoons of the bacon grease (or butter, if you prefer not to cook with bacon grease) to a skillet over medium high heat.
- Season the shrimp with Cajun seasoning.
- Add the shrimp to the skillet and cook until the shrimp turn pink, about 1 minute per side.
