Fish + Grits

While getting my Betty Crocker on in the kitchen, I learned to experiment with new things. I originally prepared this dish because they were the only ingredients available in the fridge and I just thought… hmm let’s try something different. It’s sort of a twist on the old traditional shrimp and grits recipe. I eat fish 3-4 times a week and have a weakness for creamy cheese grits so it was a perfect combination. I had no idea it would turn out so well and my Husband LOVED it! I hope you find this dish easy and delicious. Let me know your thoughts!
