If you are from the south or have ever visited, you have most likely heard of fried fish and grits. It’s a southern delicacy that is really easy to make that I can enjoy any day of the week and be satisfied every single time!

In my Cajun Fried Fish & Cheese Grits, I use southern fried (and Cajun flavored) Orange Roughy fish along with cheddar cheese corn grits. The grits, also known as polenta, are more coarse than traditional “quick” grits and work perfectly with this dish.
