Shrimp And Grits-ish

Prep Time: 25 min

Makes: 2 servings

INGREDIENTS

For the “grits”:

  • 1 LARGE HEAD OF CAULIFLOWER, CUT DOWN TO FLORETS
  • 1 CUP MILK
  • 2 TBS BUTTER
  • SALT & PEPPER, TO TASTE
  • ½ CUP GRATED CHEESE OF CHOICE


For the shrimp:

  • 2 TBS OLIVE OIL
  • 4 LINKS SAUSAGE OF YOUR CHOICE, SLICED
  • 2 CLOVES GARLIC, MINCED
  • 8-10 MEDIUM-LARGE SHRIMP, PEELED AND DEVEINED
  • 1 TBS LEMON JUICE

DIRECTIONS

  1. Pulse cauliflower in a food processor until fine, slightly smaller than grains of rice. You may need to work in batches depending on the size of the food processor.
  2. Transfer minced cauliflower to a large pan, add milk and butter and bring to a simmer. Stir over medium-high heat for approximately 10 minutes, until the mixture comes together, looking like grits.
  3. Removed from heat, add salt & pepper as needed. Stir in cheese until completely melted. Set aside, cover to keep warm while making shrimp. 
  4. Heat olive oil in a pan, add sausage, cook over medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes 
  5. Add shrimp and garlic to the pan with sausage and continue to sauté until shrimp turns pink, indicating it is cooked through, approx. 2-3 mins per side
  6. Remove from heat, finish with lemon juice. Plate cauliflower, spoon shrimp & sausage mixture over “grits”, serve immediately

Note: for a lighter option, omit sausage all together OR if no sausage is on hand, bacon works wonderfully in this dish as well.
