From the Creator of The Recipe

"Cooking for me is like sharing a piece of my soul. I take great pleasure in watching people enjoy my food. One of my favorite all-time dishes is Fish and Grits!

Fish and Grits is a true Southern Louisiana dish. I grew up eating Fish and Grits and it was normally a Friday Fish Fry meal. In my home, fish is always cooked on Fridays and if you're going to cook great fish, why not serve it with a side of creamy grits? I normally use a Red Snapper for frying fish but Tilapia or Swai is also wonderful when frying fish. I always prepare this dish for my family to continue my childhood traditions and to make sure our family traditions are passed on to the next generation."
