Bourbon Barbecued Shrimp, Cheese Grits and Collard Greens

Monday, 08 Dec 2008


The homemade barbecue sauce makes this meal — the bourbon gives it a great flavor.  The Barbecued Shrimp and Cheese Grits are from Food and Wine.  I found the Collard Greens at Simply Recipes.  The recipe is made to be served with barbecue sauce, so it’s the perfect match for the rest of the meal.  My husband is not a big fan of shrimp so I threw a chicken breast on the grill for him.  Unfortunately, the BBQ sauce really burned on the chicken’s skin.  Apart from that, the chicken turned out fine.


I made all three recipes exactly according to the directions and they all came out fine.  (Oops, there was one small change — the collard greens are cooked in bacon grease and I cooked them with the actual bacon, too).


The thing is, it took two hours to cook this meal and I’m not sure it was worth it.  The sauce took 10-15 minutes of prep and another 40 of cooking time.  I couldn’t put on the shrimp or the chicken until the sauce was done.  The chicken took around 25 minutes and I put the shrimp on for the last 4-5 minutes of that. The shrimp and collard greens took 5-10 minutes of prep time and around 10 minutes of cooking time each.  Usually, if I have a few different dishes going, I can handle the timing so they all come out at the same time.  In this case, each recipe was new so I didn’t really have the timing down.  Also, I was grilling in the snow!  Taking my snowy shoes on and off to run out to the grill definitely added some cooking time!  Lesson learned:  adding too many new items to dinner means spending extra time.
