DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare grits according to package directions.
  • Add salt and butter to taste.
  • Set aside, but keep warm.
  • While the grits are cooking, start the shrimp.
  • 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 min.
  • Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and stir constantly for about 2 min, until the flour begins to brown.
  • Add the shrimp and about 3/4 c of water or stock, stirring constantly and turning the shrimp so that they cook evenly.
  • Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, until the shrimp are cooked through and the gravy is uniformly smooth, thinning with a little extra water or stock if necessary.
  • Serve immediately over the grits.
  • (Reheat grits if necessary so they are hot).
