Cajun Shrimp with Garlicky Shrimp Grits

Serves 4 - Gluten Free


  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (14 1/2-ounce) can reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking grits
  • 3 cups firmly packed baby spinach
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons Cajun or Creole seasoning
  • 1 pound medium peeled and deveined shrimp


  1. Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, just until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add broth, water, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt and bring to boil. Gradually stir in grits. Reduce heat and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until grits thicken, about 5 minutes.
  2. Remove saucepan from heat and stir in spinach in batches until wilted. Cover and keep warm.
  3. Meanwhile, stir together remaining 2 teaspoon of oil, Cajun seasoning, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt in medium bowl. Add shrimp and toss to coat. Set large ridged grill pan over medium-high heat until hot. Add half of shrimp to pan and cook, turning once, until just opaque in center, 3-4 minutes. Transfer to plate. Repeat with remaining shrimp.
  4. Divide grits mixture among 4 shallow bowls and top evenly with shrimp.
