Dave’s Shrimp and Grits

Shrimp and grits is one of our favorite family meals. It’s perfect for an easy week night meal or to make a large batch for a crowd. You can even make this dish in your crock pot… how much easier does it get? This creamy, classic southern dish will not disappoint.

There is many different ways to prepare shrimp and grits, however, today we are sharing our founder, David Hinson’s, recipe below with you all.
4 cups water
1 cup Old School Mill’s Stone Ground White Grits
Dash of Salt
2 oz. Cream Cheese
2 oz. Unsalted Butter 
1/2 cup Dried Chives
1 heaping TBSP Chicken Base
Cooked Shrimp

Cooking Grits over stove: Add water and dash of salt to a pot and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Add grits, stir and reduce heat to low, cover pot and and let simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Cooking Grits in Crock Pot: Add grits, salt and water to crock pot and cover. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours. If grits are too “runny” remove lid and continue to cook grits until desired consistency. If grits are too “thick or clumpy” add more water until desired consistency. 

Once grits are cooked, add cream cheese, butter, chives and chicken base and stir until mixed in. Add cooked shrimp and serve.
