Mardi Gras is coming next Tuesday and to celebrate, we thought it only fitting to share a true southern classic recipe, Shrimp and Grits. We found a recipe posted by one of our favorite bloggers, David Leite, from the blog Leite’s Culinaria. One look at David’s many blog posts or Instagram page and you’ll see he’s an avid Fiesta collector, so we’re always happy to support one of our own!
This recipe David adapted from the true southern belle herself, Paula Deen, so you know it’s full of cheese, butter and bacon, y’all. And that just means it’s absolutely delicious! There’s a slight tang of lemon balanced out with some garlic, parsley and green onion. Trust us, this is how you want to celebrate your Fat Tuesday. It is the ultimate decadence.
So, run on over to Leite’s Culinaria and check out the recipe here. And if you make it yourself, let us know what you think! Also, be sure to share some recipes you like to make to celebrate Mardi Gras. We’d love to hear from you.
