Ingredients
  • Salt
  • 1 cup quick cook grits
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 strips bacon, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1 pound medium shrimp, shelled and de-veined
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Freshly ground black pepper
Directions

In a large pot, bring 5 cups water to a boil. Add a large pinch of salt and stir in the grits. Simmer until the grits are fully cooked, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the mayonnaise. (Reserve 1 cups grits for another use, such as Round 2 Recipe Silver Dollar Corn Fritters.)

In a saucepan over medium heat, cook the bacon until crispy, about 5 minutes. Turn the heat to medium-high, add the onions and cook until they begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Add the shrimp, sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook until shrimp turn pink, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the butter, lemon juice and hot sauce. Toss to coat the shrimp, and remove from the heat. Stir in the parsley.

Divide the grits among 4 bowls and serve the shrimp spooned over top of each.
