Salmon GritsAround here we love our grits.

Most people like them plain with just a little salt and butter. But…  that’s a little dull to me.

Here’s how I used some smoked salmon with some leftover grits one afternoon and thought I’d share it with y’all.


3 cups cooked grits, cooled
½ beaten egg
½ teaspoon garlic salt
3 ounces smoked salmon, chopped
cooking oil spray
2/3 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon dried dill weed
2 teaspoons lemon zest
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon minced garlic

  1. Cook grits and cool in the refrigerator.
  2. When cooled mix with egg, garlic salt and salmon.
  3. Heat skillet over medium-high and spray generously with cooking oil spray.
  4. Drop batter in ¼ cup portions in pan and cook 5-6 minutes.
  5. Turn carefully onto a clean spot in the pan that has been freshly sprayed with cooking oil.
  6. Cook 3-4 more minutes and remove to a platter.
  7. While cooking the cakes mix the last 5 ingredients together to make the Lemon-Dill Mayonnaise.

Makes: 15 cakes
