It doesn’t get much more Southern than shrimp and grits, and between the low calorie count of the shrimp, okra and tomatoes, you could technically even afford to double up on the Cheddar factor.

Ingredients

Directions

1. Warm oil in a pot then add onions, jalapenos (optional) and garlic, and cook until translucent. Add tomatoes, okra, salt, and pepper and cover. Simmer for 15 minutes.
2. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add dash of salt and then grits. Stir, cover, reduce to low heat and simmer for 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add shredded Cheddar and stir until combined.
3. Brush or toss shrimp (peeled and deveined) in olive oil then season with salt and pepper. Grill for two minutes on each side then toss in lemon juice.
4. Divide stewed okra and tomatoes and cheese grits into four portions. Garnish with 4 shrimp to each plate.
