Creamy Shrimp & Grits

I also got to enjoy these shrimp and grits. This recipe is alot easier than it looks and is actually very simple. The lemon, white wine, and chives keep the dish fresh and light. Shrimp and grits can sometimes be too heavy and saturated with butter. Using herbs and citrus gives the dish flavor without packing on the calories.
