Two summers ago at the beach we had the very good fortune to have someone with us who knows how to prepare shrimp and grits. If you're not familiar with this dish, it's very southern and VERY good, especially when you're at the beach and have ready access to fresh shrimp. I would have never thought I'd like the combination, but the cheesy grits with the spicy and garlicky shrimp and mushrooms are delicious. I first tried the dish years ago at Crook's Corner in Chapel Hill, NC, but only because my NY cousin ordered it and I thought I should at least try it. That experience taught me to be more adventurous with trying new foods because I really liked it!
