Shrimp & Grits has definitely become one of my favorite meals.  I find myself looking for it every time I visit a seafood restaurant, hoping that it tastes just as yummy as the last place.  So far only there are two restaurants here in Atlanta, Georgia that make really yummy shrimp & grits to my liking.  If you’re local, try them out: Gumbeaux’s Cajun Cafe and Scales 925.  But since it’s not always easy to get to these places when you’re really hungry, here’s an awesome recipe!



  1. Slice andouille sausage into circles the short way.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Add sausage and sauté 2 minutes or until edges are golden.
  4. Add onion; sauté 2 minutes.
  5. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute.
  6. Add shrimp to pan, sprinkle with Cajun seasoning, and cook 3 minutes, turning once.
  7. Add 1/4 cup water, scraping pan to loosen browned bits.
  8. Remove mixture from heat; add butter, stirring to melt.
  9. Cover and keep warm.
  10. For the grits, bring milk, salt, and 2 cups water to a boil over medium-high heat.
  11. Reduce heat.
  12. Gradually add grits, and cook until thick and bubbly (about 5 minutes), stirring constantly with a whisk.
  13. Remove grits from heat; add cheese, stirring with a whisk until cheese melts.
  14. Spoon grits evenly onto 6 plates.
  15. Top evenly with shrimp, andouille mixture, and sprinkle with green onions.
