A new Christmas tradition. We made this Christmas morning and it was he bomb. Leftovers taste even better - after it has sat a little. But basically amazing

Fantastic! Thick bacon works fine, as does bottled lemon juice. Lots of Tabasco required to get the flavor in the end, maybe even 3 Tbs.

Unbelievably simple and delicious!! I agree that a bit of salt would be beneficial, but the bacon helps balance it.

AMAZING!!!! I've made it twice in the past two weeks. Added a bit of salt.

First time making it, delicious and easy. I've always been a fan of shrimp and grits and this recipe was totally satisfying. Will definitely make again.

This was amazing! Must try if you are a fan of shrimp and grits and even if you don't care for shrimp or grits.

This was a surprisingly good dish with much flavor. It was easy to prepare and very filling. I did not have parsley but used cilantro instead and dish was still amazing.
