I love to cook.

That is, I love when I create things in the kitchen that turn out so delicious, I surprise even myself! I like to put odd ingredients together and just see if it will create what I think it will create. Because I am new at blogging {and because I have a rare condition of forgetting to do whatever it is I was thinking I needed to do only 5 whole minutes ago..}  I have yet to remember to take photos of  ev- er- y- thing... I don't have all the steps photographed, BUT what I do have is this SUPER DUPER easy yummy little dish that I whipped up with left over sauteed shrimp from last nights Shrimp Baked Potatoes.  (yea, they were really delicious too) And just so you know, I love very few things more than shrimp.. or anything seafood really! I am, afterall, from Louisiana and if ya can catch it.. we certainly can cook it!   :9


Is your mouth watering yet??

Start with about half pound to a pound of shrimps~ peeled, deveined and cut in half (if you want to stretch your quantity of shrimp).  Season well with Don's (or a cajun seasoning of your choice. I happen to LOVE Don's ~ even more than Tony Chachere's)  I also added a little garlic powder.. only because I really love garlic powder...


Melt about 1 Tbs. of butter and 1 Tbs of Organic Coconut Oil  in a nonstick skillet on medium high heat. Squeeze in some fresh lemon juice, or you can cheat like me and just use True Lemon (BEST. INVENTION. EVER!) 

Add shrimp and saute for about 4-5 min or until no longer transparent.  Do not overcook. They will become rubbery very quickly.. and who wants rubbery shrimp?!
(this is where I didn't have my camera... sorry)
Now, because I was just rummaging thru the kitchen trying to whip up something to eat, I decided to make it as quick and easy as possible. (Remember, my shrimp were actually left overs from last night.  I just nuked em in the microwave real quick like to heat em up)

Please don't judge my culinary quickies.. Yes, I used generic instant grits! Oh the horror!
Just take you a packet or two (hey, however much you wanna eat is up to you and your hungry tummy) and cook it like the directions say. I always add just a little extra water because I like my grits soft.

And now for the Pièce de résistance... {as if the shrimp weren't enough}

BEHOLD ~ A tub of YUM!

Seriously people... Jalapenos AND sour cream?!  Oh yea... The fat lady most DEFINITELY sang here!!  
I added a dollop to the grits and gently mixed it in!  Mmm.. Hmm..
Oh, yes I did!  
I plated my grits, topped it with my shrimp, drizzled some of that oh-so-yummy juice over the top and added chopped green onions for a little color and flavor!  
 Make ya wanna slap ya momma! It will...

 OOOO weee ....  C'EST SI BON!!!


  1. YUM!!! I have not seen jalapeno sour cream yet, but you can bet your bottom dollar that I'll be grabbing a tub tomorrow! This sounds awesome, thanks for the recipe!

  2. Mmmm, I love shrimp & grits! Yours looks fabulous! And, I buy generic as much as possible - no shame in that. Oh, and I shop at Goodwill, too (LOL).

  3. It really was SO yum, Jessica! Matter of fact... Guess what's on the menu this weekend. ;)
