Thai Shrimp & Potatoes Shrimp and Grits was the inspriation for this dish. I wanted to create a unique dish with the Simply Potatoes Traditional Mashed Potatoes, along with a shrimp. My family LOVES mashed potatoes as well as shrimp, so I thought I'd try to come up with an entree that included both of our favorites!
I invited a group of friends over to do the "taste testing" and this recipe won everybody over!
One tip: don't throw out the bacon fat! Reserve your bacon fat and use it when cooking. It's not like we are adding tons of fat to the recipe here, just enough to help bring out the flavor.
You can use any dry white wine, but I perfer to use a Sauvignon Blanc in this recipe because of the citrus level. Also, I love the brand "Taste of Asia" Sweet Chili Sauce, but feel free to choose the brand you love.
I hope you enjoy making this recipe for your friends and family!
