Garlic Butter Shrimp And Grits Recipe by Damn Delicious
Speedy comfort food at its best! Perfectly garlicky, buttery shrimp cooked so so quickly, served with the creamiest grits!
This is our new favorite speedy meal. And we know, it looks super fancy and super impressive and maybe even somewhat intimidating, but it’s legit the quickest weeknight meal you can whip up during those busy weeknights.
First, you’ll need some quick-cooking grits, except we’re going to doctor it up a bit using chicken stock and milk, adding a little more flavor and creaminess here.
Then you’ll need some shrimp, a ton of butter, garlic, lemon, paprika, thyme, and some white wine (but you can substitute chicken stock if you need a non-alcoholic substitute). This cooks super fast so be sure to keep a close eye on it.
From there, you can top off your creamy grits with the most garlicky, buttery, lemony shrimp with all the saucy bits. So quick and so so good, letting those grits sop up all that leftover sauce!
