Lowcountry Goodbye

I am preparing to say goodbye to the Lowcountry for a little bit, so it was only fitting to make shrimp and grits with my dad, our signature dish to make together. I can't believe how much I missed local shrimp. They are so tasty and plump! Our recipe is pretty simple- onions and bell peppers sauteed in olive oil, then add the shrimp to the mixture.  Make grits (preferably stone-ground) and top them with the shrimp mixture. And enjoy! It hardly needs salt because of the flavorful olive oil and is filling. If you don't have a palate for grits, it tastes equally good over rice! Try it this weekend for me :)
