Breakfast, Seafood, Dinner
sardines, grits, cheese grits
white cheddar cheese
or cheese of choice
Heat the olive oil in a non stick pan. Add onions and sautee until they begin to caramelize.
Add the sardines to the pan and season to taste with the sea salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper and garlic powder.
Turn the pan on low and sautee until most of the liquid cooks down, and the onions are completely caramelized.
To make the grits, bring the water to a boil and add some salt. Slowly add the grits, stirring rapidly with a fork to avoid lumps.
For creamy grits, cook the grits on low for 10-15 minutes (instead of the suggested 5 minutes), stirring every two minutes to avoid lumps and sticking.
Turn off the heat and add additional salt to taste, black pepper, butter and cheese. Stir thoroughly until the cheese is melted.
Serve grits hot with the sardines and onions on top.
Sardines can be substituted with canned salmon, or any type of fried fish.
Use cheese of choice or omit completely.
Serve with hot sauce for some extra kick.
