This quick and easy dinner of Cajun Shrimp and Cauliflower “Grits” has all the flavor and texture of the classic Southern dish and is super healthy to boot!
I am probably late to jump onto the cauliflower bandwagon, but I am LOVING cauliflower lately! Roasted, pan-fried, as cauliflower tots – it is delicious no matter how you cook it! This recipe uses “riced” cauliflower which is prepared by shredding cauliflower into tiny pieces on a grater. I love the texture of riced cauliflower and when it is cooked – it works great as a substitute for rice in a fried rice makeover, and also works great as a substitute for grits in this recipe.
I use a lot of cheddar cheese in the cauliflower to give the dish extra flavor and creaminess. That is a fancy way of saying I am addicted to cheese and I would add twice the amount into this recipe if it was socially acceptable.
And the Cajun shrimp… well there’s not much to say about that. Ya’ll know I love my Cajun flavors! I didn’t even realize how many recipes I have with Cajun spice until I started writing this post. Apparently we use Cajun seasoning a LOT!
