Organized SAHM's Low Country Shrimp and Grits!

Hi ya’ll! Are you ready for a South Carolina favorite? Shrimp and Grits! If you are just joining me, this is part 2 of a 4 part VLOG series about grilling for moms. I have been featuring quick easy meals for the moms who want to know how to get out there and grill. Grilling can be an intimidating thing for a mom who has small kids so I thought I would bring you some recipes that are quick to throw together on the grill and that will impress your man.

A few things…

  • I am using a Saber Grill. I love my grill! We have had many many grills and I feel completely comfortable using this one. Awesome for a busy mom like me who needs a simple grill to use with powerful technology that can get food on the table quickly and cooked evenly!
  • Notice the smoke on my video or in my Instagram photos? One of my absolute favorite features on my grill is that there are no flare ups! With the infrared technology, the high temperatures of heat literally melt the fat off of your meals dissolving into just smoke. None of those dangerous flames dancing around your face! Be sure to check out their website for more easy grilling recipes!
  • You can use gluten free or regular grits for this recipe.
  • This meal took between 10-15 minutes to pull together start to finish!
  • Be sure to check out Saber Grills Blog for additional recipes! You can also find them on FacebookTwitter, and Pinterest!

Shrimp and Grits


  • 1 cup grits (you can use normal or GF)
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheddar
  • 1/2 tbsp cajun spice
  • Green onion. I probably used about 4 green onions.
  • 1 big piece of country ham
  • as many or as little shrimp as you want in your dish. I used medium, deveined, no tail shrimp
  • tin foil sprayed with oil oil


  1. To start the grits add your liquid to a saucepan and turn on high until it comes to a rapid boil.
  2. Pour in one cup of grits, whisk together then place the lid on the saucepan and turn to low.
  3. Place a piece of greased tinfoil on the grill (greased side up where the shrimp go). Lay your shrimp on the tin foil and grill on medium until they turn pink (about 5 minutes).
  4. Grill your country ham on the grill about 5 minutes as well being sure to flip once half way through.
  5. Remove everything from the grill! Don't forget to turn the grill off!
  6. Tear your ham into bite sized pieces once it has cooled.
  7. Place your grits into a large bowl, add your cheddar and stir. If your grits are too thick, add water or more heavy whipping cream.
  8. Go ahead and add your cajun spices and be sure to mix it in.
  9. Pile the shrimp, ham, and onion on top.
  10. Serve hot with a tall glass of iced tea!

I received a Saber Grill to review but was not financially compensated in any way. The opinions expressed are my own and are based on my observations.
