“This is a recipe that I have compiled from several other shrimp and grits recipes. It has been customized to the taste of the Lowcountry. I promise that you will love this. Make sure you try the biscuits with grape jelly with the shrimp and grits. Although odd, it is a delicious addition to this dish. It's like taking a short trip to Heaven.”
