Sandra Lee Makes the Greatest Shrimp and Grits Ever 04:31
Sandra Lee says all good Southern food starts with bacon, and her Greatest Shrimp and Grits Ever is no exception. She sautes half an onion with three chopped-up slices of bacon. To save money, Sandra recommends buying frozen shrimp instead of fresh. She adds the cleaned shrimp to the saucepan, adds salt and pepper, and gives it a good stir. Next she adds a generous helping of salt and one cup of instant grits to four boiling cups of water. She recommends whisking the water before adding the grits to keep them from clumping up. Turning her attention back to the shrimp, she adds one tablespoon of lemon juice, two teaspoons of hot sauce, one tablespoon of butter and a bit of parsley. For truly Southern grits, Sandra adds a quarter cup of mayonnaise and whisks it in. It’s time to dish up some shrimp and grits.
