Using simple substitutions I was able to cut Bobby Flay's recipe by 1/2 the fat!
4 Cups Water
Pinch of salt
1 cup Stone Ground Grits, dry
1 TBSP Butter
Cheddar or Colby Cheese, Low Fat, 2 cup, shredded
Pepper to taste
1 lb Shrimp, peeled and deveined
8 slices of Maple Leaf Brand Chicken Bacon, chopped into small pieces.
Juice of 1 lime
2 cloves of garlic
Fry the "bacon" in a large skillet until it's browned - it won't brown like regular bacon. In the tiny amount of grease that's left, add shrimp. Cook until shrimp turn pink. Add lime juice, chopped "bacon", and garlic, and cook for another 5 minutes or so.
To serve, spoon 1/4 of the grits on a deep plate or bowl, and spoon 1/4 of the shrimp mixture over top. Sprinkle with parsley if you really want to make it a fancy 'do.
Serving Size: Makes 4 large portions
