Keto Cajun Shrimp & Grits

Keto Cajun Shrimp & GritsKeto Cajun Shrimp & GritsKeto Cajun Shrimp & Grits. This is such a fabulously easy recipe that it’s a shame you have to wait to go to New Orleans to get it. Well, you don’t and here’s a good recipe to start with. Keto Cajun shrimp & grits is spicy, piquant, and every bit as good as what you can get elsewhere and a bit of good news:  It is not nearly as expensive as eating it in a restaurant. Yes, the Grits are made with cauliflower but by the time you are finished with them you are not going to know. You can use any cheese of your choosing in the grits and I chose Mozzarella because It is what I happened to have on hand but cheddar, white cheddar, or any cheese of your choice works.
