Creamy Shrimp 'n' Grits

(3 Votes)

Everyone loves using the slow-cooker when we come out with dishes like this Creamy Shrimp 'n' Grits. It's melt-in-your-mouth tender and oh-so-smooth! Mmm mmm!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 cups uncooked regular grits
  • 3 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1 (10-3/4-ounce) can Cheddar cheese soup, undiluted
  • 1 bunch scallions (green onions), chopped
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound cooked, peeled, and deveined medium-sized shrimp (see Notes)
What To Do:
  1. Combine first 8 ingredients in a lightly greased 5-quart slow cooker.

  2. Cover and cook on LOW setting 3 hours.

  3. Remove lid; stir grits, and add shrimp. Cover and cook on LOW setting 30 more minutes. Garnish, if desired, with additional sliced scallions.


Notes

You'll want to use cooked shrimp in this recipe to ensure a creamy dish. If you cook the shrimp in the slow cooker, you'll end up with watery grits because of the liquid that seeps from the raw shrimp. The seafood department at your local supermarket will steam the shrimp for you. Or, if you prefer to cook your own, start out with 2 pounds uncooked shrimp in the shell.

There's a popular new (well, maybe not so new) ingredient that so versatile and good for you, we just had to share it! It's coconut oil, and it can be used to make everything from popcorn to scrambled eggs, from sauteed chicken to baked goods. We used it to make our Banana Chocolate Swirl Cake and is it ever moist and delicious!
