A spoon in a bowl of shrimp and grits.

Shrimp and Grits are a popular southern dish from coastal South Carolina and Georgia. Though I’ve seen versions of this all across the south as lunch and dinner, I prefer this as a hearty brunch option. The first time I tried Shrimp and Grits was in Nashville. I tried one bite and I was sold. Creamy grits, salty bacon, tender shrimp, all-around warm comfort food. It was magical. Once I came home, I did my best to make an easy but still delicious version and man does this recipe deliver!
