"From one of Gooseberry Patch's newest cookbooks ("Fall, Family & Friends") comes this very Southern recipe for Shrimp & Grits. Now I am not Southern (my DH is), but we both love grits. I do know this dish is very traditional in the Southeast. In a check on Amazon, I discovered a cookbook devoted ENTIRELY to shrimp & grits, can you believe it? This is an easy version to be made in the crock pot. Y'all, I haven't try it yet, but as soon as I find the grits (scarce here in the southwest) I'm going to -- DH can't wait!"

"This is quite possibly the best shrimp and grits recipe I have ever had. I did need to add about 8oz extra chicken broth in the last hour or so, my grits were getting quite firm. Also used frozen but not precooked shrimp instead of fresh. So cheesy, so flavorful, could not get enough!"
"This was the first time I tried shrimp and grits doing the majority of the work in the crock pot but the flavor was absolutely delicious. I will definitely be making this again."
"This was wonderful. I made it for our family dinner tonight and everyone loved it. I didn't change a thing. I have tried other recipes and I have had Shrimp and Grits in several coastal restaurants.... This is the best!"
"I was a little suspect about shrimp and grits in a crockpot, but I was desperate for something different from the slow cooker so I gave it a shot. This recipe did not disappoint! I seasoned the shrimp with a little Cavender's seasoning and cayenne before saut"
"Doubled this recipe and took it to a Church dinner. Received many compliments with several saying it was the best shrimp and grits they ever tasted. I thought it was delicious but certainly took more than 20 minutes to prepare, if you count the time to peel and shell the shrimp. It was a little watery, and I would consider adding some sausage."
"Very nice, a little spicy for the kids but good. I will try without the chiles next time."
"Excellent! Great flour-less recipe and thanks! PS: the previous Savannah, GA review of the low land should read from the Savannah, GA "Lowcountry" :)"
"This is very good. The flavors melded well, and it was easy to do. THE MAN says I can add this to my short rotation of things we love!"
"We loved this recipe! The grits were so soft and the flavors melded together wonderfully. I had eaten low land grits with shrimp in Savannah, GA. I didn't think there was tomatoes or green chilies in it so I left those out. Loved this w/o but want to try the tomatoes/chilies sometime."
