Making foods that are lighter in calories and fat doesn’t mean that you always have to always sacrifice flavor. Switching ingredients and using less fattening ingredients can leave you wondering why you haven’t cooked like this before. This recipe for shrimp and grits is lighter than my previous version of shrimp and grits.
