When buying grits, you can choose a coarse or medium grind, or even stone-ground grits. This variety takes about 60 minutes with constant attention to cook on the stovetop. Whereas quick grits cook in about 10 minutes!

This lemon garlic shrimp and grits was so good! I am a huge lover of grits! I swapped out the instant ones, for slow cooking grits, but that's the only change I made to this recipe. It was fantastic! The lemon-garlicky flavors are perfect with shrimp, and really brought a nice contrasting flavor to the buttery grits.

Delicious shrimp and grits recipe. The added lemon flavor was different, but I liked it. We eat grits almost every day in my house, so it's nice to try something new. I'm for sure going to make this again.

Lemon garlic shrimp is the best, so when paired with delicious grits its a win win situation. I didn't do cheese grits, but they were extra buttery. Such a perfect breakfast, so glad I tried this.

Cheesy parmesan grits are always on the menu at my house. I served it with with lots of buttery shrimp (I used more than the recipe called for) and it turned out perfect. Never thought lemon garlic shrimp and grits would go together, but it's fantastic.

I added a little buttermilk to the grits so that they were extra creamy, and used really large shrimp! I also added the cayenne pepper for some added spice. Delicious!
