Anyway, the only issue I had with my whole shrimp and grits/comfort food thing is that I like to eat all forms of comfort food with a spoon. Ideally out of a Peter Rabbit bowl, but the spoon is vital. And with all my other forms of shrimp and grits, a knife and fork are required to spear the shrimp and cut it into bite sized pieces. That’s when I got the brainstorm.
What if I cooked up the shrimp with some Old Bay, cooled them down a little and gave them a rough chop into bite-sized pieces? What if I then stirred them into the cooked grits so that every bite of the grits had a little bit of shrimp in it? What if I also added cheese to the grits just to send them over the edge into grits comfort food perfection?
