Breakfast: Shrimp, Grits, and a Fried Egg
We had some leftover shrimp from the night before, so this was super simple. We just made some cheese grits, reheated the shrimp, fried an egg and served it with some salsa and lots of cilantro. Simple ingredients, but lots of flavor...
Shrimp: half an onion, 2 garlic cloves, crushed red pepper, smoked paprika
Just fill up your bowl with the cheese grits, top with the fried egg and then the shrimp and garnish!
For the fried egg, if you like yours runny, start with high heat and cook the egg on one side until the whites on top are close to solid, but still have a little transparency. Turn the heat down to low and cover and cook for an additional minute or two--until the whites are solid. No need to turn over and risk breaking the yolk!
