My husband and I went to dinner with some friends before Christmas; we went to a new restaurant in downtown Portland called, The Screen Door. They serve southern style food in a very charming atmosphere, let me just say the food was outstanding. We shared an appetizer of Low Country Shrimp over Grits, I love grits and I love shrimp but I never knew how extremely good they are together. This dish was simply amazing; the flavors complimented each other so well. It was love at first bite and we immediately knew that we had to try this dish at home.
1/2 Lbs. - Shrimp (peeled & deveined)
2 Tbs. - Butter
2 Tbs. - EVOO
1 1/2 Tsp. - Smoked Paprika
1 1/2 Tsp. - Johnny’s Garlic Season
1/2 Tsp. - Spice Island Smokey Mesquite Season
1 Tsp. - Lemon Pepper
2 Servings Instant Grits
Melt the butter into EVOO in a sauté pan over medium high heat, when the butter is ready add the shrimp and spices. Cook the shrimp just until it turns pink, while the shrimp is cooking keep stirring them into the sauce to get an even coating. When the shrimp is ready spoon them over the grits and enjoy with a side salad or some fruit.
