Anna’s favorite food is shrimp and grits. If we are at a restaurant and they have shrimp and grits on the menu, Anna is going to get it.
We can easily cook a pot of gooey cheesy grits and top with some perfectly cooked shrimp (sous vide is my favorite way to cook them), but we were looking for a better way to serve shrimp and grits to a crowd - an appetizer/game day food. We have been making some amazing coconut shrimp/fish cakes, so we decided to tweak that recipe a little and came up with these.
Addendum: we made these once at an eggfest Anna was really proud of them, so she was talking them up a bit. One gentleman was particularly interested in them, so he was waiting for them to finish. Anna gave him a cube with a smile and he walked away with it to enjoy it. We watched him take a bite…and spit it into the garbage!! Hahahah it broke Anna’s heart and I couldn’t stop laughing The flavor is great on these, but the soft grits on the inside may feel like they are undercooked…not something you want with shrimp, I suppose. The man spitting these into the trash can is still a running joke between us, and I still love these things! Lol (Sorry Anna!)
