Cornmeal Shrimp and Cooking Planit

If you have been around my blog lately, you know I am hosting a Cooking Planit T-fal Giveaway. September 2-8, 2013.  I was gifted a set of T-Fal to review and I absolutely love.   Have you heard of Cooking Planit?  It is a great website, and app, to use when you want a complete meal ready at the same time.  There is also a shopping list available to conveniently check what ingredients you have on hand and what you need to purchase.  I use Cooking Planit website (my review), since I don't have an iphone or ipad and cannot access their free app.  I am happy to say, an android app is in the making and will be available in the near future!

On Labor Day I was looking on Cooking Planit to find something fast and delicious to make as an appetizer while waiting for our meal to cook.  Did you have a great Labor Day?  Did you Barbeque?  We ended up cooking indoors since the clouds were gray and the weather not promising for grilling, as planned.  There are so many wonderful recipes to choose from.  I typed in shrimp in the search bar and narrowed it down to recipes only instead of meals. There I was offered 17 recipes to chose from.  Awesome! While they all looked amazing, I picked the Quick Cornmeal Shrimp.  Fast...oh yes...it is!

I made these delicious Quick Cornmeal Shrimp for a fast snack to share with my family this Labor Day.

Three Cheese Garlic Grits

Grits!  There isn’t a Southerner around that hasn’t had a bowl of grits.  With nothing added to them, they are plain, blah and just not good at all.  When you add salt, garlic, cheese, bacon and/or butter..you are in for a southern delight!  Something to keep in mind…when grits boil, they hurt you if they land on you.  They will pop out of the pot like crazy if they are cooking too high.  When they get on you….they stick to you and burn.   Just keep them simmering and you’ll be fine.  ~smile~

3 Cheese Garlic Grits with Shrimp
Three Cheese Garlic Grits

4 cups water, chicken broth is Great
1 cup grits, old fashion
1 1/2 – 2 tablespoons minced garlic, I used bottled in water
1 medium to large bay leaf
1- 2 teaspoon kosher salt, to taste
fresh ground pepper to taste
3/4 cup pepper jack cheese, shredded
3/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2  - 3/4 cup parmesan cheese

Bring water, or chicken broth, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt and bay leaf to a boil.  Stir in grits, cover and reduce heat to a simmer.  Cook according to directions.  Add cheese, change the amounts to suit your taste, when done.  Taste and add more seasoning if desired. 
Serve with sautéed or fried shrimp, eggs, ham…you get the idea! 

Sautéed Shrimp

MMMMM, MMMMMM, MMMMMM, MMMMM, MM!!!  I love me some shrimp!  You can fry them, boil, sauté, bake, broil, grill…you name it and I’ll eat them!  I am so loving this…it isn’t even funny!  Add them to grits and OH MY STARS, I am going to eat a Generous helping!   Serve them on rice also…Yes!  Here are links to …Three Cheese Garlic Grits, Tomatoes and Rice, and Cajun Seasoning

Sautéed Shrimp 

1 lb raw shrimp, headed, peeled and deveined
1/2 to 3/4 cup each, onion, bell pepper, celery (I use less of the celery and didn't use any this time) and tomatoes,  cut depending on size of shrimp
1/2 to 2 teaspoon cajun seasoning

Rinse headed, peeled and deveined shrimp.  Drain.  Spray skillet with olive oil cooking spray.  Heat to medium/medium high.

Add veggies and cook for 2-3 minutes,
until they are starting to get a little tender.  

Add shrimp and sprinkle with cajun seasoning to your taste.  Stir several times to cook evenly.
The shrimp will turn pink when done. 

Enjoy!  <3 and Hugs!
