Shrimp, Peppers, And Sausage Over Grits

Shrimp, Peppers, And Sausage Over Grits

Ok, Cookies. I know I post a lot of calorie packed recipes, but I do cook a lot of lighter meals. All of the time! I just thought they were too boring to post lol Shrimp & Grits are comfort food heaven. I make many variations of it. This one is as light as I can make it! Lol the flavors of the peppers, onions, and sausage together are just unreal! If you’re not a fan of cheese (Bless ya heart) this one’s for you! I served them over grits this time. But it pairs well with quinoa and yellow rice too. Hope you try it and Enjoy!

  1. 1 lb sliced sausage (I used Manda's chicken & green onion sausage. Amazing!!)
  2. 1 lb shrimp (31-40 count preferably)
  3. 1 of each -Yellow, red, and orange bell peppers (sliced)
  4. 1 yellow or white onion (sliced)
  5. 2 tsp Olive or Coconut Oil
  6. 1/4 cup of dry white wine
  7. 1 cup of stone ground grits
  8. Low sodium chicken broth (measure according to package instructions on the grits)
  9. Himalayan Pink Salt or Garlic & Herb Mrs. Dash to taste
  1. Cook grits in chicken broth instead of water (follow the package instructions for measurements) in a saucepan.
  2. Meanwhile, sauté the onions, sweet red, yellow, and orange peppers in olive oil in a cast iron skillet. (man I love that thing!)
  3. Add in the sausage and swirl them around the skillet for about 4 mins.
  4. Pour in the white wine
  5. Season the shrimp with Garlic & Herb Mrs. Dash.
  6. Toss them into the skillet
  7. Let that simmer until the shrimp blush.
  8. Taste and adjust seasoning if need be.
  9. Serve it over the grits.
  10. Enjoy!
  1. Grits can be substituted with quinoa or rice. And this won't make you tipsy! The alcohol content of the white wine will cook out after 20-30 seconds of cooking.
