Low country chefs have done it again.  They have found a new and exciting way to  inject grits into the mainstream of evening entrees.


Are you ready for Grits and Grouper?

Well, do yourself a favor the next time you visit Charleston and treat yourself to dinner at 82 Queen. The grilled pesto encrusted grouper over creamy grits is sensational. The recipe features fried green tomatoes topped with sun-dried tomato butter.  I savored every bite after a delcious cup of she crab soup.

My wife Cindy enjoyed the shrimp and grits at 82 Queen but she prefers the spicier Crooks Corner recipe from Chapel Hill.

The Charleston restaurant has promised to send me a copy of the new recipe for grits and grouper and when I receive it I will post it.

Today's question:  what is your favorite low country dish?
