It's a quickie meal too! You'll be finished with this meal in under 30 minutes, so you can spend the rest of your evening with your family.

What You'll Need:
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup quick-cooking grits, uncooked
  • 1 pound medium-sized peeled, cooked fresh shrimp (see note)
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) extra- sharp shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
