I was in the mood for something different this week, and it’s been a while since I’ve had salmon. Even longer since I’ve had grits. If you’ve never thought about grits as a side dish for dinner then I you should absolutely try these. They’re flavored with onion, garlic, Parmesan cheese, and mushrooms. The thick, creamy grits soak up all of that flavor and then some. Not to mention they are incredibly inexpensive. The recipe says it makes four servings – but that should be changed to one serving, because I ate the whole thing myself right out of the pot. They were that good. I will be making these a lot more often. That warm and savory flavor will be especially good as the weather starts to cool down.
Grits are the perfect partner for something like salmon, which has such a bold flavor. There’s no need to be nervous about cooking fish if you’re not used to it. This is a very simple preparation – just place the salmon under the broiler while the grits finish cooking. In no time at all you’ll be enjoying a wonderful, healthy meal – and shaking up those tastebuds a little bit too.
