What’s Inside the BBQ Shrimp and Grits?

  • Shrimps are the star of the party. These versatile crustaceans are available in my freezer throughout the year.
  • Lemon Juice – Enhances the flavor of shrimp
  • Worcestershire Sauce – This condiment is a true workhorse. This sauce will have a rich umami-flavored due to its sweet and salty flavors.
  • Creole seasoning is a combination of spices, peppers, and other seasonings.
  • Garlic adds a unique earthy sweetness to the dish, making it delicious.
  • Butter This buttery creaminess gives the sauce an amazing sheen.
  • Kosher Salt and Black Pepper – Enhances every dish’s flavor and makes them more harmonious.
  • Shrimp is the star, and Quick Gruits are the grits that make it shine.
  • Parmesan Cheese – Often referred to as the “king”, parmesan cheese lends cheese grits a sweet and earthy flavor that complements the BBQ shrimp.
  • Grits are creamier when made with heavy cream grits They won’t be as creamy. 1651999493 - The Tasty Hub

How Do You Make It Happen?

  1. Combine the Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, and black pepper in a large skillet. Heat to medium.
  2. Once the sauce is boiled, add the shrimp to the pan. Continue cooking the shrimp until the color turns opaque and pink.
  3. To remove the shrimp from the saucepan, use a slotted spoon. Keep the shrimp warm.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium and add the butter cubes one by one. Continue whisking, while still moving your fingers. Then, add the butter cubes one at a time. Wait for it to melt.
  5. Once all the butter is melted and the sauce has become smooth and creamy, cover your saucepan and let it heat up.
  6. In a large saucepan, bring five cups of water to boil. Cook for seven minutes. Whisk every minute to avoid lumps.
  7. Mix the cream, butter, and cream. Stir in the parmesan cheese. Let it melt.
  8. Add the shrimp and BBQ sauce. Combine all ingredients and mix well.
  9. Divide grits among four bowls, and then top each one with equal amounts of sauce and barbecue shrimp.
  10. Garnish immediately, if necessary, with parsley

  • 12 ounces of medium-sized shrimp, peeled, deveined, and with tails
  • 1 Tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 4 slices of bacon thickly sliced, then cut into 1″ pieces
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic, minced

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup quick-cooking grits
  • 1 cup hard Mahon-Menorca cheese, shredded
  • 4 chopped green onions bring chicken broth

Slowly stir in the grits while reducing heat to low-medium. Whisking for five minutes, Mix in cheese, and continue whisking for another minute to make the grits creamy. Turn off heat in the meantime, and heat a large skillet on medium heat to cook bacon until crispy.

Place the bacon in a skillet. Drain on paper towels. Drain the grease from the skillet and return it to the heat. Once the shrimp are cooked bacon, saute garlic and shrimp in the pan. Add the bacon and barbecue sauce to the pan. Stir to combine.
