      Oh my, was this good!! I added some garlic and a splash of white wine to the shrimp as I was cooking it and it was wonderful. This dish is really nice for company but it's also good southern comfort food.

      This was my first experience cooking grits and it came out beautifully. I did not have milk so I<br/>subbed heavy cream, with a little extra chicken stock to cut the richness a bit. Skipped the bell pepper and swapped a thinly sliced shallot for the onion since it was what I had on hand. This dish is so incredibly rich, flavorful, and comforting on a cold, snowy evening in the Midwest. I will definitely make this again switching shrimp out with more veggies so my husband who hates seafood can enjoy it too. I feel like this would be tasty with fresh cut corn tossed in and some fresh parsley. Thank you for sharing this inspiring southern dish.
