A Southern staple with a Northern twist, this dish takes all our favorite flavors of Buffalo wings and marries them to the Southern comfort staple of shrimp and grits.



  1. Cook the shrimp according to the package instructions.
  2. Meanwhile, bring 4 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the grits, lower the heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the mozzarella, 1 teaspoon salt and several grinds of black pepper. Cover and keep warm over low heat. 
  3. Combine the butter and hot sauce in a small microwave-safe bowl and microwave until the butter is melted and the mixture is hot, about 1 minute. Whisk to combine. 
  4. Divide the grits among 4 bowls and top with the shrimp. Drizzle with the warm spicy butter and top with the celery and blue cheese.
