Drunken Lobster n’ Grits Recipe

ST. PETE FOODIES APPROVED SPONSOR:

What's better than Shrimp n' Grits? Drunken Lobster n' Grits of course! I've taken the traditional Shrimp n' Grits recipe and made it a touch classier and more flavorful with my homemade Creole seasoning and a splash of rum. And let's not forget about the lobster - the topping that puts this grits recipe into a category of its own.

The homemade creole seasoning recipe can be found on Fishmonger Approved, or you can use any stock creole seasoning of your choosing.

This dish is perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner - or whenever you're craving classy comfort food. And it's so simple to whip up that it's also a perfect dish for friend and family gatherings.
