On this particular day I pulled some shrimp from the freezer and thought about what to prepare-- the first day, hubby said let's go for a burger--who am I to say, but honey, I need to cook those shrimp. So, I put the still frozen shrimp in the refrigerator to thaw--they'll be good tomorrow.
Tomorrow comes, and we had a late breakfast and mid day meal--no shrimp there either. Finally, the third day, I KNEW I had to fix those shrimp. Besides, they were completely thawed--what to make?
We really like Paula Dean's Fiery Cajun shrimp, which takes butter and Texas Pete hot sauce--good ole Texas Pete was nowhere to be found in the pantry. Alexa--add to list--Texas Pete.
Another shrimp dish that is easy peazy is just to boil them--or sauté with butter and garlic,but I wanted something different-- how about shrimp and grits? Never made that before and I'm in a cooking mode. Gather ingredients, which I do have on hand! Here is the recipe from Bobby Flay
Now, I'm back in my mode of not cooking again for awhile!
Dished up and served and 15 minutes later--all gone!
