And what better way to celebrate than a comforting meal that is a WEE bit lighter on the belly…. which just means you have room for seconds.
Shrimp & Easy Cheesy Cauliflower Grits.
Easy breezy beautiful cover girl
Sooooo I decided to be extra fancy and purchase orange cauliflower which truly is unnecessary unless vibrant mango colored grits is your thang, you can just stick to the ol’ regular cauliflower. The cheese alone will help shift color, because you use enough cheese to clog your arteries for this grits.
Yes the texture is still fabulous, trust me on this one.
Okay next up the shrimp, I cooked some bacon first and then cooked the shrimp in the bacon fat because I really wanted to have a heart attack. In fact there is zero bacon actually pictured in these images because I ate it all before I took the actual picture =/ womp womp.
Ohhhh also, I used wild raw Argentinian shrimp (deveined) from Trader Joes because I wanted some beauty shots of the shrimp before I cooked it. No this also isn’t necessary for consumption. You can use frozen shrimp (thawed) or whatever you can get from your local supermarket. I prefer large shrimp 31/35 count but that’s just me…. little shrimp makes my skin crawl.
And that’s about it. It’s so simple. Fear not. It’s also gluten free AND keto friendly if you’re into that sorta thing.
