How to make Black folks shrimp and grits

Instructions for the shrimp

  1. Remove the Instant Pot lid and turn on the sauté setting for 5 minutes. (Although you will not use all of this time. I like to have the extra minutes for the time it takes for the sauté to become active.)
  2. With the lid off the pot, heat the water, avocado oil, and butter in the stainless-steel inner pot for up to 1 minute.
  3. Add the shrimp, garlic, salt, and pepper. 
  4. Cancel the sauté setting and close the Instant Pot lid.
  5. Close the Instant Pot lid (make sure the valve is up – in the position for sealing) and pressure cook on high for 1 minute.
  6. When the cooking time is finished, allow a natural pressure release for at least 2 minutes.
  7. To open the Instant Pot lid, move the valve to ‘venting’ and manually release any remaining pressure, if applicable.
  8. Use a colander to drain the liquid from the cooked shrimp and set the shrimp aside to add to the grits later.

To prepare shrimp on the stovetop – Heat the butter and oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and sauté the shrimp with the seasoning ingredients for about 4 minutes until they turn pink.

 

Instructions for the grits

  1. Open the Instant Pot lid and add the chicken broth, grits, salt, and butter to the stainless-steel inner pot.
  2. Close the Instant Pot lid (make sure the valve is up – in the position for sealing) and pressure cook on high for 10 minutes.
  3. When the cooking time is finished, allow a natural pressure release for at least 5 minutes.
  4. To open the Instant Pot lid, move the valve to ‘venting’ and manually release any remaining pressure, if applicable.
  5. Pour in the heavy whipping cream.
  6. Stir the grits to combine the ingredients.
  7. Add the mascarpone cheese and continue stirring.
  8. Remove the stainless-steel inner pot with the grits inside so they don’t dry out.
  9. Cover the Instant Pot stainless steel inner pot with the Instant Pot lid to keep the grits warm while off of the Instant Pot burner.

Pro tip: When it’s time to add the grits to the skillet, you can mix in ¼ – ½ a cup of heavy whipping cream to loosen them.

 

To prepare the grits on the stovetop – In a large saucepan, bring the whipping cream and salt to a boil, then stir in the grits. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cover, stirring occasionally. After 5 minutes, fold in the mascarpone cheese.

 

Southern Shrimp And Grits Creole Seasoning

 

Instructions for the Southern shrimp and grits sauce

  • You may need to transfer the grits to the skillet at this point if you only have one Instant Pot because you will need to use the stainless-steel inner pot for the sauce.
  1. Add the heavy whipping cream, smoked paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and chicken bouillon to the empty Instant Pot stainless steel inner pot. 
  2. Turn on the sauté setting for 10 minutes. (Although you will not use all of this time. I like to have the extra minutes for the time it takes for the sauté to become active.)
  3. All the sauté to come to a boil and let boil for about 3-5 minutes.
  4. Cancel the sauté setting and stir in the parsley. 
  5. Remove the shrimp and grits sauce in the stainless-steel inner pot from the Instant Pot burner.

Pro tip: While the sauce is boiling, keep watch of it and occasionally stir to avoid overcooking and burning.

 

Preparing the sauce on the stovetop – In a medium-sized saucepan, stir together the whipping cream and spices and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 15 minutes.

Black folks Southern shrimp and grits FAQs

What is the best shrimp to use?

When purchasing shrimp to make shrimp and grits, choose jumbo-sized ones because the shrimp are the shining stars on top of this creamy, fluffy dish!

 

Can you use frozen shrimp for this Southern shrimp and grits recipe?

Yes, you can use frozen shrimp, fresh shrimp, or raw shrimp already thawed.

It’s best if the shrimp is not pre-cooked.

How do you peel and devein shrimp?

It’s not the most glamorous task, but it sure is satisfying once you get through all those pesky shells. Peeling and deveining shrimp is not as hard as it might seem. You will need a small, sharp knife or kitchen shears to cut the shell off of the shrimp’s back, then make a shallow incision along the inside curve of the shrimp’s outer edge. 

You can also buy shrimp that’s already peeled and deveined like I did to avoid this pesky task!

 

What is Creole sauce?

Creole sauce is used in Black folks shrimp and grits. It’s a type of creamy sauce that originated from Black folks in Louisiana. 

It’s made with Caribbean spices, Cajun seasoning, and chicken bouillon. Some folks include a tomato base.

Creole sauce can also include butter, bacon fat, or andouille sausage for added flavor. 

Consider also serving Creole sauce as a savory accompaniment over rice or as a dipping sauce for seafood.

 

Southern Grits For Shrimp And Grits

 

What do grits taste like?

This recipe is made with 100% white ground corn. It’s similar to the taste of cornmeal that’s been cooked just right to get the most creamy grits with a soft texture. 

Grits are often served with butter, cheese, and salt for breakfast or with seafood for dinner. Of course, grits can be eaten by themselves as well (i.e., cheesy grits).

The best grits are not hard on the outside – but not mushy either! Instant Pot pressure cooking makes this possible with ease.

 

What are grits made of?

Grits are made from corn that has been soaked in water and then ground into a coarse meal. 

Next, the grits are pressure-cooked with boiling water or chicken broth until they reach a soft and fluffy consistency. 

Grits can be served alone or mixed with other ingredients, such as butter, cheese, bacon, eggs, and green onions. 

 

Can you use quick-cooking grits for this Southern shrimp and grits recipe?

Yes, but the best grits that are both soft and fluffy are 100% white corn or yellow corn grits. 

This recipe calls for white corn grits.

 

How do you thicken grits?

The best way to thicken grits is to simply learn the precise timing and temperature needed to cook them. You want grits to thicken up on their own without any outside help. 

 

How do you make creamy grits?

I like using an Instant Pot when cooking this shrimp and grits recipe because it makes the cooking time and temperature for rice, grains, porridge, and grits easy and effortless. It’s just a drop in the pot for soft fluffy grits every time!

The brand of grits I like to use and recommend is Bob’s Red Mill white corn grits/polenta.

Adding other ingredients such as milk or flour in an attempt to thicken grits takes away from the taste and quality necessary when making this Southern signature dish. 

Adding an egg to grits will also give them a thicker texture in no time – but is only recommended when serving breakfast grits and not shrimp and grits.

    I don’t understand how grits sort of got a low reputation, lol. I love grits. I mean, they basically take on the taste of whatever you cook with them, like rice. Maybe people who have never tried them think they must taste like grit, lol?? Shrimp & grits is amazing.

    • November 24, 2021 / 2:57 am

      Yes – and I’ve found the best grits are made in the Instant Pot!

    Great story. Of course the real history is that maize – corn – was exclusive to the Americas – Central America, specifically; and not used by European-Africans until the 15th century. Africans were eating different grains at the time they arrived the America’s, but were certainly introduced to corn upon arrival.

    I’m fairly certain instapots weren’t brought from the old country, either.

      Africans were also eating Maize prior to the 15th century. Primarily due to the fact that African Moors were seafarers and had already been to the Americas.

    I think this recipe looks great! I also like to add some cold, diced tomatoes to finish mine off on top. The one thing I saw that was out of place. Grits are from Native Americans, so Africa had nothing to do with the dish. Slaves did make their own of the dish, which is what we know and love today. Lowcountry food is my lifeblood, so I just want everyone to be informed on the real.
