    Barbecued Shrimp and Grits

    tasty chicken barbecued shrimp and grits

    This recipe boasts less than 3-times the amount of butter normally used in shrimp and grits as well as cuts out the heavy whipping cream.  The tartness of the lemon juice add to the salt flavor thus cutting down the use of salt.
