So let me clarify, I grew up in the north, so I mean no disrespect to real southern grits. In fact, I do love them on the rare occasion I choose to eat them (being I’m usually grain free and all). This time it was the result of limited gluten free choices at a Nashville restaurant a few weeks ago. (Although I vetted the restaurant ahead of time, we ended up with one of those servers who really didn’t understand gluten very well – he told me the linguine entree was a good gluten free choice. Seriously?). When it was all said and done, the safest choices boiled down to a salad, or shrimp and grits. I chose the latter and it was certainly delicious. So when I thought about how soon I could indulge again in such a fantastic dish, I immediately though of how to replicate the recipe, sans corn. So, this happened, and it was a yummy, comfort food experience! Thank you south, for creating shrimp and grits.
When it comes to eating, I’m all about a good shortcut…and leftovers. After grilling some shrimp for dinner, I chilled the leftovers and used them cold in a yummy salad the next day. I stuffed the salad into an avocado, but you can also use a tomato, a pepper or your favorite gluten free bread. Continue Reading

Quick, easy and delicious as an appetizer or toss it into your favorite gluten free noodles (or zucchini noodles) for an awesome dinner. Something tells me you may fall in love with it too.
