1 18 oz package SeaPak® Popcorn Shrimp

1/4 cup honey

8 oz kale leaves, stems removed

1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

3 cups water

1 tsp salt

1 tbsp butter

1 1/4 cups quick cooking grits

1/4 cup cream

4 oz gorgonzola cheese


Prepare popcorn shrimp per package instructions.


Preheat oven to 300°F.

In a large bowl, add kale and drizzle with olive oil. Toss kale with oil until evenly coated.

Spread kale into a single layer onto a parchment or silicone lined baking sheet.

Bake for 22-25 minutes or until crisp.


In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring water and salt to a boil.

Whisk in butter and grits and reduce heat to simmer until mixture is creamy and has thickened.

Add cream and cheese and whisk together until melted and completely combined.


Divide grits evenly between four serving plates.

Top grits with crispy kale and shrimp. Drizzle each plate with honey and additional gorgonzola cheese, if desired.

Serve immediately.
