Shrimp and Grits with Artichoke Hearts

Shrimp and grits, I love you way more than a Northern girl should. Maybe it is the Southern husband’s influence, but I have never met a shrimp and grits recipe I didn’t like, and this one is no exception. The shrimp and artichokes are cooked in a delectable lemon garlic butter sauce, and then you spoon the whole thing over some grits that have been kicked up with a little butter and parmesan cheese.

The fact that I made this recipe did not, however, stop me from making another shrimp and grits recipe with andouille sausage and roasted tomatoes several days later. I can’t help myself. Stay tuned to this channel for that one, but in the meantime….

    I've never had shrimp and grits, although I've only heard good things abt it … certainly looks like food that would make my insides feel warm n fuzzy n happy :)

    Chicken would absolutely work! Grill it, shred it and then cook it as you would the shrimp – basically just to warm it up. Yum!
