Step 1

Bring the water and salt to a boil in a medium pot. Slowly whisk in the grits. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring often, until the grits are cooked for about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in cheese and butter until melted. Cover and keep warm.

Step 2

While the grits are cooking, in a large skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

Step 3

Add the bell pepper to bacon drippings and sauté over medium heat until tender, about 4 minutes. Add the shrimp, green onions, garlic, cajun seasoning, and salt. Cook for 1 minute. Stir in the chicken broth and simmer for 5 minutes.

Step 4

Right before serving, stir in the cooked bacon and lemon juice. Spoon the shrimp mixture over the grits and garnish with parsley, if desired.
