  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil until hot. Add shrimp and garlic to skillet and sauté 3 minutes or just until shrimp turn pink. Stir in lemon juice, hot sauce, and parsley, and heat for 1 minute.
  3. Spoon grits into a bowl, top with shrimp mixture, and serve.
Better-for-You Tip: Take your taste buds on a tasty trip to the South with this sinfully delicious classic. And rather than smothering these with mounds of cheese, like a traditional recipe would, we chose to add the flavor by adding garlic, lemon juice, a splash of hot sauce, and just a bit of cheddar. Since shrimp are a lean protein and always a favorite, we suggest you stock up on them as a good go-to when you need a super-fast dinner.
