Skillet-Grilled Red Pepper Shrimp & Grits!! 

Serves: 4
Hands-on time: 10 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking grits
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/8 tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 oz shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
  • 12 oz medium raw peeled shrimp, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1 tbsp safflower oil
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 2 medium scallions, trimmed and finely chopped
  1. Prepare grits: In a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups water to a boil on high heat. Stir in grits and return to a boil. Then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook for 5 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat, stir in garlic powder, Worcestershire, cayenne and salt; cover and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare red pepper shrimp: Heat a large nonstick skillet on medium-high. Coat skillet with cooking spray, add pepper and lightly coat pepper with cooking spray. Cook for 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until pepper begins to lightly brown on edges. Set aside on a plate.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine shrimp with remaining ingredients, except scallions and cheese, and stir until well coated. Add mixture to skillet in a single layer and cook on medium-high, without stirring, for 2 minutes. Stir and cook for 2 more minutes, until shrimp is opaque in center. Remove from heat and stir in red pepper and scallions.
  4. To serve, divide grits among 4 dinner plates and sprinkle evenly with cheese. Spoon equal amounts of shrimp mixture over top.
