This is the most delicious dinner….but my recipe on this was all about throwing something together so I could get fed.
- canola oil
- lemon juice
- soy sauce
- minced garlic
- grits (spread into a sheet less than 1 inch thick and refrigerate)
- 1 egg or egg substitute
- bread crumbs
- rice vinegar
- cabbage – shredded
Peel and de vein the shrimp – place in a bowl to marinate with a glug of canola oil, minced ginger, a teaspoon of garlic, teaspoon of lemon juice and teaspoon of soy sauce…..marinate as long as you can.
To make the sauce for the shredded cabbage – add together additional minced ginger, rice vinegar, garlic, dash lemon juice, canola oil and soy sauce…..all of the liquid was added in equal parts and the garlic and ginger was roughly 1 teaspoon.
I pulled the sheet of grits from the fridge and cut 3 round pieces out with a cookie cutter an inch and a half in diameter. I ran each one through an egg wash and then bread crumbs. Place in pan with heated canola oil until each side in nicely browned.
I then placed the marinated shrimp into a hot pan and cooked for a few minutes on each side…..till they were a pretty pink color.
For plating – I place the shredded cabbage on the side with the sauce over. I added some tomatoes…..cause I love them. The three grit circles go down and then I place the shrimp on top of those……added some more of the sauce from the cabbage and ATE IT!!!
