In a small pot, bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Whisk in 1 cup of grits and adjust the temp to low. Put the top on and let the grits cook for about 15-20 mins, stirring occasionally.
When the grits have thickened, add butter, cheese, seasoning and stir. Let the grits continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the shrimp. Feel free to add a little additional water if they become too thick.
Slice bacon into small pieces and in a large skillet cook until crispy. Remove from the pan and place on a paper towel lined plate.
Pat shrimp dry and then add them to the same skillet you cooked your bacon in. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side or until they become pink. When they are almost done add lemon juice, garlic, parsley, scallion and jalapeno to the pan.
Stir together and cook for about 1 minute. Finally add the cooked bacon to the pan to incorporate into the mixture. Next, place your grits in 2 bowls and top each with half of your shrimp mixture and serve immediately.
To add more of a brunch feel, serve this dish with a fried or poached egg!
