Garlic grits with shrimp & salmon...repost
I follow the cooking instructions on the grits box to begin. Bring the water and 1 cu of milk (reserve the other 1/2 cu) to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and slowly stir in grits. I constantly stir my grits to prevent sticking.
Once grits are in the pot, add butter, garlic powder, and crushed garlic. Continue to stir, grits should begin to thicken. At this point add in the reserved milk. If you'd like them even creamier, add more milk.
Grits should be soft if they are cooked properly. If they taste grainy, keep stirring and let them cook longer.
Garlic grits with cod & peppers...repost
I like to pair my garlic grits with fish and shellfish. I'm sure they'd pair well with chicken, or pork too! Or as an option for vegetarians...topped with sautéd veggies.
