Last weekend we headed to the low-country on assignment to take pictures at a wedding. It's not our usual thing, but because family was involved and they were willing to pay for our services, we said 'sure thing'. That morning, prior to heading down there, we had shrimp and grits. It's not our typical morning breakfast, but we had some time to spare and a stomach to feed. It's one of our favorite dishes ever since we tried it for the first time more than a decade ago at Mac's on Main(currently closed) in Columbia, SC. We've tasted it elsewhere, and the only other places to compare are those in the 'low-country' near Charleston, SC. Hyman's Seafood and Charleston Crab House are two of our favorite restaurants that serve shrimp and grits. We've heard of a few newcomers, and Nana's Seafood & Soul in Charleston seemed like a real interesting one to visit in the future. However, we don't want to downplay the simple version that was made in our kitchen. Cajun flavored shrimp, Aunt Jemima hominy grits in a light seafood stock, cherry tomatoes, and crushed red pepper. Trust us....it was delicious!!!
Do you enjoy eating shrimp & grits?
