Cajun Shrimp and Pumpkin Goat Cheese Grits

Last month we created a dish for goat cheese grits that went over so well we thought it would be even better with a can of creamy pumpkin and blackened shrimp. So with a play on this sweet carolina classic we are ready again twisting it into a fall flavor fest!

What You Need

  • 1 c. Instant Grits
  • 4 c. Water
  • 2 oz Goat Cheese
  • 2 oz Parmesan Cheese

  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 Tbsp. Butter 
  • 1 lb. Shrimp, peeled and deveined 
  • 3 Tbsp. Cajun Seasoning
  • 4 Green Onions
