Mother Inspired! My mom loves Shrimp & Grits. She always wants me to make them. I don't always have time to make the red eye gravy so one day I stumbled upon a package of Louisiana Cajun gravy and it had a picture of Shrimp & grits on it so I said why not and I made up this recipe. It was a huge hit with my family and the rest is Cajun delicious history.
