  1. Fry bacon until crisp, remove and set aside.
  2. Sauté onions, garlic, and peppers in bacon grease, add lime juice and hot sauce and set aside.
  3. Prepare grits and add cheese and butter when done cooking to allow for them to melt, then set aside.
  4. Stir when done melting.
  5. Sauté the shrimp until they turn pink, about 2 to 3 minutes.
    If you are planning to use unpeeled shrimp, plan an extra 20 minutes to peel the shrimp!
  6. Place the grits and cheese in large serving container and place the shrimp down the center of the container.

Tips, Notes, and Variations

  • If served on individual dish/platter, slice limes on the side.
  • In preparing the grits, you may want to use condensed milk instead of water to make the grits for an extra creamy texture!
  • As an alternative, add garden peas to grits and serve steamed peppers, zucchini, yellow squash, and mushrooms on the side. Adds a great taste texture with the peas!
