Shrimp And Fried Grits Appetizer

Shrimp & Fried Grits Appetizer

While we'd be happy eating our creole almost every night for supper sometimes another dish has to be the main attraction. This is an easy appetizer for a crowd — just prepare the grit cakes in advance and keep warm in the oven.

  • Shrimp
  • Carolina Creole®
  • Luquire Fried Grits Cakes (see recipe below)
  • Bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • Green Onions, chopped

Simmer 1/2 lb. of shrimp with 1/2 a bottle of creole. Serve atop Luquire Fried Grit cakes and finish with bacon and green onions.



Pour leftover grits into a coffee cup or leftover soup or tomato paste can. Store in the refrigerator until they properly set — about two hours. Pop out of the cup and slice into 1 inch thick coins.

Heat oil in shallow pan and fry until nice and brown. Serve topped with Carolina Creole®.
