Shrimp and Grits with Artichoke Hearts

[donotprint]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 :)

  3. Kate Morgan Jackson says:

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

  4. I made this for dinner tonight and it was so delicious! I think next time I'll use about half the butter.


  1. […] another recipe for shrimp and grits in ages and ages. Well, not since May, when I put up the post on shrimp and grits with artichoke hearts. But I can’t help it. I’m married to a Southern man, and with those vows come love, […]

  2. […] shrimp served with regular grits.  We love them in their fancy forms, when you add things like artichoke hearts or sausage to the mix.  We love them with marinara sauce, when the grits part is actually polenta, […]
