I love shrimp and grits but being in Colorado where grits aren't served very often, this is a great way to introduce my family and friends to these wonderful flavors.

I have made this before for a Christmas party. It was the hit of the night. Everyone wanted more!! For something different chop fried bacon and sprinkle on top.
