Directions:
Prepare grits first, so that the cooked shrimp does not have to set for any length of time.
Heat a small amount of oil in a skillet. Slice sausage and heat in skillet. Remove sausage and set aside. Pour off excess fat from skillet, saving enough to saute shrimp. Place well-drained shrimp in skillet over low to medium heat. Sprinkle with lemon juice and Old Bay seasoning. Cook for 2-3 minutes each side or just until pink through. Remove shrimp from skillet and set aside. Drain any excess water from skillet. Over low heat, add tomato juice and sausage, stirring until just heated through. Add shrimp last to avoid overcooking. Stir all ingredients until shrimp are coated with sauce and the entire mixture is warmed through. Pour entire mixture over grits and enjoy.
