6-8 oz. shrimp – raw, peeled, deveined, tails-off (you can buy it frozen with the work already done, thus keeping it SuperSimple)
Grits – 2 servings, prepared anyway you like them
1-2 T onions, sliced thin
2 large cloves garlic, sliced
2 T butter
2 T olive oil
some sort of Italian seasoning mix to taste
salt & pepper to taste – watch the salt, the shrimp may be salty enough.
Cook up your grits (on the stove top, not the microwave – blech) and keep hot. Heat up your skillet, add the fats, garlic and onion. Let that sauté a minute or two. Toss in the shrimp, salt (opt.) and pepper them, and cook until nice and pink. Sprinkle with the Italian seasoning, toss and pour over the grits – MUST include the butter/olive oil in the pan.
Best with a big latte or strong cup of coffee and a little seasonal fresh fruit.
