Shrimp & Cauli Grits, Paleo a la Southern!

I feel like shrimp & grits has been going around the neighborhood! Like a cold… one person made it & then everyone got the craving… including me!
After I made bone broth from the snapper I baked, I just knew this was the week to make this dish! The fish bone broth turned out rich & garlicy with hints of lemon. Yum! I used riced cauliflower for my grits, wild caught shrimp, bacon, onions, a little coconut aminos and a jazzy mix of nightshade free herbs & spices!

  • Stir well and cover.
  • Bring to a boil, then lower heat to medium & cover.
  • Let it simmer until the liquid is reduced by half.
  • In the meantime, cook bacon in a large skillet, I like mine crispy, I cook it in cast iron, on medium high about 2 minutes each side.
  • Remove bacon from skillet and lower heat to medium.
  • Slice onion in ¼ inch slices and add in to skillet.
  • Lower heat again, to medium-low.
  • Stir the onions occasionally.
  • After about 8 minutes, they should be tender and sweet.
  • Bring heat back up to medium-high and throw in shrimp with spice mix.
  • Stir frequently until the shrimp are pink and coiled.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Chop bacon in to small pieces.
  • You can also use parsley, cilantro or chives to garnish.
