I’m a country girl at heart. I grew up eating ALL the comfort food. I’m proud to share a piece of me with you in this hearty recipe. I grew up eating grits and bacon for breakfast at least once a week. I love that I was able to put together a familiar recipe with something fresh and new.


Why  Salmon and Cheesy Grits?

If you read my Salmon and Artichoke Salad post on Monday, then you know this week’s recipes were inspired by my dissatisfaction with salmon. Its not the fish itself, but the boring way it is normally prepared. I challenged myself to come up with a few fun recipes including the salmon I purchased at Central Market!


I’ve always been a HUGE fan of shrimp and grits. When I woke up Monday morning with leftover salmon, I was STOKED that my southern brain told me to throw it on some cheesy grits. I’m a comfort food lover so this recipe really makes my tummy giggle.
