Southwestern Shrimp and Grits is a new take on an old classic combining Texas Caviar with Creamy Cheddar Grits and shrimp!


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium sweet onion diced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper diced
  • 1/2 cup green bell pepper diced
  • 1/2 cup corn kernels
  • 1/4 teaspoon coriander
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 pound large shrimp raw, shelled
  • 1/2 cup canned black beans drained and rinsed
  • Creamy Cheddar Grits


  1. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and garlic. Saute until soft, approximately 5 minutes.
  2. Add red bell pepper, green bell pepper, corn and coriander. Heat for 2 minutes.
  3. Add shrimp and red wine vinegar to mixture and cover for 3 minutes.
  4. After 3 minutes, turn shrimp so both sides cook evenly. Add black beans. Cover and cook for an additional 2 minutes to warm. Shrimp should be starting to curl and be a light pink. If they still have any grey, cook for an additional 2-3 minutes. Vegetables should be soft but still taunt.
  5. Serve over Creamy Cheddar Grits.
