Shrimp And cauliflower grits 🔥🔥 In honor of black history month @keto4thekulture is profiling different meals that reflect our culture, in the keto way. My contribution was making and old time classic shrimp and grits, but with Nigerian fusion, using Suya shrimp. And of course cauliflower as the grits base!
1 package of Birds eye view frozen Mashed Cauliflower (12 oz) (sour cream and chives)
1 lb of large raw shrimp
3-4 pieces of bacon
1/2 c heavy whipping cream
1/4 c chicken stock
3 springs of green onions (chopped)
1 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp of lemon juice
1/2 yellow onion chopped
1 tbs of mince garlic
1 tbs of butter
1/2 cup of Parmesan shredded cheese
1/3 c sharp cheddar cheese
Begin by seasoning the shrimp with Tony’s ( or an Cajun seasoning), black pepper, and salt. Set aside to marinate while you prepare the onions.
Follow the instructions on the package of the frozen cauliflower, and set aside.
Lets start Cooking !
Start frying bacon in pan until done, remove the bacon and set aside.
Leave the oil in the pan, maintain the heat level on med-low, add in the butter.
Next add in the shrimp and the yellow onions, half of the green onion
Cook for 3-5 minutes while flipping sides, remove from the pan.
Next, de-glaze your pan by adding in the chicken stock and lemon juice. (Stir)
Add in the Worcester sauce and the heavy whipping cream
And lastly add in the Parmesan cheese.
Stir slowly while allowing the sauce to simmer on low for 3 minutes, set aside.
