Shrimp And Grits Recipe

Folks in South Carolina love shrimp for breakfast: Shrimp and Grits. Shrimp and grits can be prepared with either yellow or white grits. It's a simple, quick, and easy recipe which is a real winner. However, the trick to making perfect shrimp and grits lies in peeling and refrigerating the shrimp a day before.

These days, there are marine shrimp farms in over fifty countries.
