Instructions
For the grits
  1. Using a food processor rice the cauliflower using the blade attachment. You are looking for a cous cous like consistency.
  2. In a large saucepan bring the chicken stock up to a boil and add in the cauliflower and cover with a lid and cook on a medium heat for about 15 minutes.
  3. Remove the lid and add in the butter, salt and pepper and cook till the cauliflower is nice and tender.
  4. Add in the cheese and cream and give it all a good mix.
  5. Now remove the lid and cook till the cauliflower grits are the consistency you like.
  6. Once done, turn off the heat and serve hot!
For the bacon & shrimp
  1. Drain and dry the prawns and add them to a large bowl. Season with the cajun seasoning and black pepper and set them aside. If the seasoning doesn’t have salt then add salt to taste as well.
  2. Chop the bacon into pieces and fry in a pan till nice and crispy and then remove and set aside.
  3. Now add the prawns to the same pan. Make sure you do NOT remove any of the bacon fat from the pan. Make sure the heat is on high as you want to get some colour on the prawns and since they cook fast we don’t want them in the pan for more than 4-5 minutes in total.
  4. Just about 2 minutes after adding the shrimp mince the garlic and add it in and give everything a good mix.
  5. Next add in the butter and parsley to the frying pan and cook for about a minute more till the shrimp is cooked all the way through.
  6. Turn off the heat and add in the lemon juice and give it a final good mix.
  7. Serve the shrimp and bacon bits on top of your Keto grits and garnish with chives or the green part of a spring onion.
  8. Enjoy!
