We are rolling into party season full speed ahead! What’s on your festive hors d’oeuvres menu? For this post I partnered with The Shrimp Council to bring you an appetizer that your guests will be talking about the day after:
Shrimp and Grits Sushi with an Old Bay Dipping Sauce
For this post, Matt and I knew we wanted to do something with shrimp and grits. After brainstorming a few ideas: chilled stacks of grits with shrimp on top, a “meatloaf” style dish, and individual shrimp and grits cups, the sushi idea came about. We rolled with it
On the healthy recipe spectrum, this one ranks pretty well. Low-fat shrimp, wholesome grits, nutritious bell pepper and nori, and a dipping sauce made mostly with yogurt means this sushi is good for your tastebuds and your waistline.
To make this recipe, you will need a sushi mat. You can find simple inexpensive bamboo ones in stores like World Market. We have a plastic one that comes with a guide and stand, and it works quite well. (Remember this sushi and champagne fiesta!?)
Start by cooking your grits. I used my rice cooker, and some local Wade’s Mill grits that are coarse and hearty. I wouldn’t try this with instant grits – you need them to be thick.
Put down your sheet of nori (found at most grocery stores in the Asian section) and spread your grits out nice and thick.
Add your sliced bell peppers about 1/3 of the way in
Followed by a row of cooked shrimp. Stretch them out a bit so they take up less space lengthwise.
Then roll ‘er up! There are lots of You Tube videos on this if you need some some more visuals. It’s really not that hard to do!
Next give the roll a slice with a sharp knife
And cut into 8 segments.
This recipe makes 2 rolls of 8, so double it for a crowd.
The dipping sauce is key, as it gives another punch of Old Bay and is a wonderfully creamy balance to the shrimp.
Shrimp and Grits Sushi
- 1 cup coarse ground grits
- 1 dozen medium shrimp
- 1 tbsp cooking oil
- Dash of Old Bay
- 1/4 each red and green bell pepper
- 2 sheets nori
- For the sauce
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt Greek or regular
- 2 tbsp mayo
- 2 tsp Dijon mustard
- 2 tsp ketchup
- 1.5 tsp Old Bay
- 1/4 tsp sriracha
- Cook grits in your preferred method. I like to use a rice cooker on porridge setting, but you can also make them easily on the stove top. Follow the directions of the brand of grits you buy. Allow to cool slightly so they are easier to work with and a bit sticky.
- Toss shrimp in a few pinches of Old Bay.
- Heat skillet to medium high and add cooking oil. Saute shrimp until they form a nice crust.
- Slice bell peppers into thin strips.
- To assemble sushi
- Place a sheet of nori on your sushi mat.
- Spread grits out about 1/4 in. thick to all corners.
- Place peppers and shrimp about 1/3 of the way down.
- Roll sushi.
- Slice into 8 pieces.
- For the dipping sauce
- Combine all ingredients and mix well.

shrimp cocktails! i love tomato-y things, so the cocktail sauce makes the dish for me.
This sounds so awesome! Someone could just spoon feed me that Old Bay dipping sauce, and I’d be a happy girl! 😉 I don’t know that I can think of any mind-blowing shrimp appetizers I’ve had, but this one might just do it!

This is so creative! I’m all about the tequila lime marinated shrimp. Especially in the grilling months. But since it’s getting cooler maybe an olive oil poached shrimp with a winter pistou or a curried shrimp and butternut squash soup.
Yumm! I Love Sushi!
Looks delicious! I can’t wait to make this at home.
I love the basic shrimp cocktail, but I think this sushi could become a new favorite. What a great idea!

I love all kinds of shrimp!

Laura E. says
I’ve only had shrimp a couple times being from Nebraska. I enjoyed the coconut shrimp and shrimp scampi!
coconut shrimp does it for me. Or, a nice easy brazilian dish with tomatoes, a touch of cream and shrimp is tasty treat and quick meal with rice.
My favourite shrimp app has got to be rice paper rolls loaded with cucumbers, cilantro and peanut dipping sauce. So good!
Alex @ get big, go to work says
These looks delicious! Definitely have me craving sushi!! Was this a time intensive recipe? I always think sushi would be pretty time consuming to make.
It was actually really quick! The rice cooker helped with the grit-making, and we just had to cook the shrimp and roll them up.
One of my favorite shrimp appetizer is a dip with cream cheese layered on the bottom, cocktail sauce layered on top of that and little shrimp placed on top. Dip with crackers. Simple yet delicious. I will be trying this sushi though for a dinner partying I have coming up!
I seriously think this is the coolest idea ever. Shrimp and grits is my mom’s all time favorite meal so I have to make this for her! Thanks!
I love having southern roommates who introduced me to the deliciousness that is shrimp and grits!
Boy, I could really use a new set of cookware…..

That is super cute! I’m a Southerner living in California, so I often try to do Southern “fusion” food for my parties. This is so going on the menu for my next party.
Anne Weber-Falk says
I really like cold boiled shrimp with cocktail sauce. Simple and good. It’s all mine at home too because nobody else in my house likes shrimp. I know! They don’t know what they’re missing. I like to serve this at my extended family get togethers.
Coconut shrimp is always a winner in my book!!
Deep fried shrimp!
Hillary Gronvold says
I love just the classic shrimp cocktail – with extra cocktail sauce! But this recipe sounds amazing!
I have never seen pots and pans that color! So cool!
Torpedo shrimp are a favourite appetizer – shrimp wrapped in rice noodles and fried to crispy perfection!

It just took us a year to remodel our entire kitchen. These pots and pans would be a great addition to the new room!
i love the barefoot contessa’s roasted shrimp cocktail!
I love regular ol’ shrimp cocktail, but this sushi looks so interesting! I love shrimp & grits and I love sushi, so there’s no way I can go wrong with this.

Classic shrimp cocktail!
I LOVE shrimp! Any shrimp appetizer!
Buffalo Shrimp and cajun Shrimp are my favorite.

I’m a big fan of shrimp ceviche!

Shrimp cocktail is my favorite appetizer as well as my favorite way to eat shrimp. I often order it as my entree when we eat out.
shrimp cocktail 😀
Love shrimp, just sad that I have a very low sensitivity to it, at least I haven’t had to eliminate it completely. For shrimp appetizers, seafood bruschetta, bacon wrapped crab stuffed shrimp, or our all-time favorite Dill Havarti-Shrimp Appetizers (cocktail bread toasted with honey mustard, melted havarti, shrimp, red pepper and dill. Making shrimp for dinner and wish I could make this, but will settle for cauliflower fried rice with shrimp and pineapple.
Shrimp cocktail – nice and easy. 🙂
I’ve never had grits. I know, right? They’re on my to-try list, but I’m a bit nervous about trying them for the first time at home. Polenta too. I’ve gotta get over the nerves and just try them both.
They are soooo good!
I do like a nice shrimp cocktail.
lea @ healthy coconut says
my go to shrimp dish is shrimp fried rice, the reason why I always have frozen peas/carrots mix so I can make this dish any time

We have cheesy shrimp canapes every New Year’s Eve. One of my favorite and most delicious traditions.
I just love the shrimp themselves so much, I often eat them plain! That still counts as an app, right? 😉
wow! that’s impressive. i’m from the south and grits is a favorite- i need to make that soon!
forgot to include my email on my last comment!
I love pretty much any kind of shrimp, but my favorite is coconut shrimp!
What an awesome and creative recipe! Sounds delicious!!
I love shrimp wrapped in puff pastry!
Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio says
Such a fun recipe!
What a cool idea…I love making sushi at home and will definitely have to try this spin! I think this recipe could also be perfect for introducing sushi to those who are little apprehensive about giving it a try. My favorite shrimp appetizers are shrimp cocktail or any kind of grilled shrimp on a skewer.
My favorite shrimp app would be a tie between classic shrimp cocktail and Bonefish Grill’s Bang Bang Shrimp.
I love simple shrimp cocktail. It is healthy and delicious.

Oh my goodness that looks so delicious! Love making homemade sushi – we often make ours vegan (just because it’s easier, ha) with shiitake mushrooms and avocado, and a sauce out of veganaise and so much tasty chili flakes. Gotta give your recipe a try!

Kari F says
I am always a fan of veggies and dip. So simple, but so many different options.
Lindsey J says
To echo what everyone’s already said – that’s a really unique idea! I’m interested to know how you seasoned the shrimp? I’m sure there are loads of seasoning combos that would pair well with the Old Bay dipping sauce.
We just sprinkled it in Old Bay since it’s pretty salty and has lots of flavor.
This looks SO good! Must go buy a sushi mat and try! I love shrimp avocado and mango stacks!
Carrie B says

This looks so fun! I think good old shrimp cocktail is my favorite.
Kath – I love shrimp in the right way…you always make things look good, even if it’s something I’d never do! 🙂
Jenny E says
My favorite shrimp appetizer is baked jalapeno shrimp “poppers”! Halve and clean the peppers, oil, and roast a bit to soften on a sheet in the oven. Fill with cheddar, shrimp, a light dusting of cumin, and either wrap with bacon or top with seasoned breadcrumbs and bake to appropriate food safe temperature. Serve with salsa.
Mmmm, Tex-Mex goodness from Austin, Texas.
Jenny E says
My @jennyfluteplaye twitter acct was hacked, so I followed on my other account @radiantsoulyogi instead. In the contest entry, I said I followed on jennyfluteplaye. Sorry for any confusion.

Gambas al ajillo with bread to mop up the sauce…
Just cocktail shrimp – I could eat them like candy!
This looks so delicious!! I can’t wait to try for my next dinner party 🙂
I really like old fashioned shrimp and grits, or barbecued shrimp skewers..however, my all time favorite way to eat shrimp is simple; steamed and covered in Old Bay. Since I’m a Maryland native, I could eat almost everything smothered in Old Bay!! (seriously, it makes everything better)
how fun is this??!! I love the idea.
My favorite shrimp appetizer probably is a tempura roll!
