A semi-traditional version of the low-country classic. Grits have always been a staple in Southern cuisine, and shrimp & grits, which started out as a common breakfast dish in post-Civil War Charleston, SC, is still a favorite. Here it gets fancied up a bit with the addition of roasted tomatoes and thyme, as well as country-style ham topping the creamy cheddar-infused grits. Plump shrimp are sautéed with onion, garlic, red and jalapeño peppers, and special secret spices!

What People Are Saying

3 Stars
Ingredients were not separated as indicated in the instructions. Shrimp was a little soggy from the sauce.
3 Stars
Shrimp and grits were good. Great taste and cooked very well. The tomatoes I didn't care for. I would have enjoyed more if it were a different vegatable.
3 Stars
Very small portion, presentation wasn't the best.
2 Stars
The grits texture and taste were lacking.

Never got order

This is way too good. I'll have to order this every time it's on the menu and then I'll get really fat. Yum!!
1 Stars
Horrible disaster. The shrimp and sauce/ grits packaged together. There was so much extra liquid swimming in the box, it leaked out of into my other meals. I drained the liquid before heating but still watery. Must be the Roma tomatoes. Not good.

Needs more sauce
3 Stars
Mashed potatoes were used instead of grits
3 Stars
Watery and the spice was lacking.
3 Stars
Was a bit too bland
4 Stars
Loved this meal but was it grits or polenta?
5 Stars
The shrimp was cooked and seasoned beautifully! Delicious! Munchery surpassed my expectations.
4 Stars
Flavor is excellent but I wish the sauce were a little thicker. It is like water. I heat this dish at half power so the shrimp warms but does not over cook.
3 Stars
Lacking flavor in polenta
4 Stars
Yummy!
5 Stars
Super delicious! I want to see this on the menu again soon. I would order again. The polenta was so yummy.
5 Stars
one of your best. I will order again.m
2 Stars
Hard to understand this dish. It doesn't have a real sauce -- it's more like juice, which makes the grits really liquid. There was a version of shrimp and gits you used to make that was really good. This isn't it.
3 Stars
Just not as flavorful as I hoped.
2 Stars
Too salty and watery
2 Stars
Too under cooked for me again
5 Stars
This is one of your best! Please offer it again; it was delicious. I heated for two minutes at half power so the shrimp was not over cooked. Two minutes on high per your instructions would have ruined it.
4 Stars
Delicious. However when I see the Pepper, I expect some heat and I find this rather more on the "no heat" side of the scale.
5 Stars
Very tastey dish!
4 Stars
great flavor & nice big shrimps.
4 Stars
Really good flavors, and a satisfying meal. Probably the only feature I have comment on was the sauce that the shrimp came in. I wish it had a little viscosity to it, a bit thicker which I think would complement the polenta/grits better.
2 Stars
Too much liquid! Polenta soggy but shrimp had good taste.
5 Stars
Delicious as usual
4 Stars
Very nice dish! The polenta was good and made me wish for more. The roasted tomatoes were a nice surprise. Had to look hard for the country ham though. Found a few small pieces but for flavor it was fine. Shrimp was nice sweet and moist.
2 Stars
This is the first time I was unhappy with the food I ordered. The shrimp was in a sauce that was more like broth or soup and the grits, according to the back of the package weren't grits at all but polenta and had no flavor.
4 Stars
Delicious. Will have again
5 Stars
Insane. This. I mean...wow. Food good. Food very good.
4 Stars
it was really good and just the right portion for one person.
5 Stars
Second time ordering it. My favorite!
5 Stars
I was a bit nervous about ordering this as it is outside our usual culinary sphere, but we loved it and have had it twice so far. The shrimp is succulent and flavorful, and the grits (polenta) and ham are tasty and pair well with the shrimp.

Wasn't my cup of tea
5 Stars
Omg sooooo good and spicy
5 Stars
Loved it. Very yummy.
5 Stars
Recommend & will order again!
4 Stars
Loved the flavors. Sauce made grits runny. I like them thick and creamy. Maybe they should start a bit thicker. Delicious
2 Stars
Liked the portion of shrimp & the general flavor of what was delivered. What I didn't like was the fact that there were about 3 tbsps of grits - why skimp on these? The food ended up swimming in the gravy sauce. Also, the tomatoes were just meh.
5 Stars
I really enjoyed the flavor of this- really great!
5 Stars
Never had grits, now I'm obsessed! Sooo good!
5 Stars
I don't usually write reviews but this dish was so darn tasty! One of the best I have had from Munchery. The grits were perfect (no easy task), and the spice level was just right. I hope this will be a regular on your menu.
5 Stars
It was delicious. The portion was very big but enjoyed the leftover for lunch the next day! Will definitely order again.

Very bland overall. The sauce was way too watery. I had to pour it off after cooking.
5 Stars
Excellent as usual
3 Stars
Flavors were good. Texture was off. Grits were just a hard clump while tomatoes were runny.
5 Stars
This dish is a throwback to my childhood; although we were not as fortunate
5 Stars
Great change from pasta or rice dishes we usually have
4 Stars
Good flavor. Good portions. I'm not usually one for grits, but they ended up being my favorite part as all of the flavors melded together.
5 Stars
So. Damn. Good!!
4 Stars
Good flavor. But heating intrusions in the oven did not hear the food through.

This was excellent ! I'm from the south and this dish was awesome !! Will order again. !!:))
5 Stars
Even with reheating, the large shrimp were perfectly cooked. The roasted tomato added just the right sweetness and acidity and the grits were soft, creamy and polenta like with fresh black pepper
5 Stars
Did not disappoint.

4 Stars
Very flavorful dish! Yummy
4 Stars
This was pretty good but not nearly as good as the version that Chef Allison Jones used to make a couple of years ago. This was a bit too watery and salty.
5 Stars
Great flavors and the perfect amount of heat!
4 Stars
It was good.
4 Stars
Just about perfect! The tomatoes were a little soggy but other than that, a strong 4.5.
5 Stars
The shrimp and grits was so great - one of my new Munchery favorites. I'm not always a grits fan or even always a shrimp fan for that matter, but this was flavorful AND healthy. Loved it big time!
5 Stars
So good!
5 Stars
One of the best Munchery meals ever! Hot and spicy and quite filling - shrimp were perfectly done after heating. I'm from the South and I give this dish an A+. Hint for heating - stove top or oven best for sauce/shrimp and nuke grits separately.
5 Stars
Amazing! One of the best things I've ever had on munchery. Full of flavor and perfectly cooked. Looked beautiful too. More of this, please!
5 Stars
Creamy, spicy and delicious!!
