    Shawn C's Note:

    Now no true southerner would ever use a instant grit so that is understood. In the true version of this dish was simply some plain or cheese grits with a wonderful shrimp. Creamy grits are the key along with the true hominy grits insteast of ground corn grits. slow cook them and you will not be disappointed
