the taste: my shrimp + grits recipe
By the time you’re reading this, I will be off on my way to sunny South Florida and let me tell you, I can feel those rays already. I’m feeling a little spoiled because we just got back from Grand Cayman (for a super-amazing wedding) last week but I caught some sort of flu on the plane ride home – on my birthday nonetheless – and so I’m ready for another dose of sunshine.
And besides, it’s South Beach Food & Wine … couldn’t miss that, now could we? 🙂 If you want to keep tabs on what we’re up to while we’re there, you can follow along on Instagram.
Something else happens today … can you guess what it is? Yes, The Taste is on! Super-excited to watch what happens this week as always. Last week I didn’t get so lucky, but the week before my shrimp and grits dish made it to the top. I’ve had quite a few requests for the recipe, so I wanted to make sure you knew where to find it.
I initially came up with this dish for a Southern dinner party. That version had blue cheese in the grits, which I loved but I omitted on the show because most chefs have a major issue with mixing seafood and cheese. Instead, I threw in some bacon. Always a good idea, right?
I hope you’re enjoying watching the show!
