  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup stone ground grits
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 pieces tilapia fish
  • 2 tsp blackened or cajun seasoning
  • vegetable oil in a spray bottle


  • Place chicken broth, heavy cream, grits, salt and butter in Ninja Foodi pressure cooker insert. Stir. Cover with pressure cooker cover. Make sure valve is set to "Seal."
  • Cook on High Pressure for 8 minutes. Once 8 minutes is up, allow the Ninja Foodi to natural release for 10 minutes. Press cancel and release the remaining pressure by turning the valve to "Vent."
  • Meanwhile, season fish with blackened or cajun seasoning by first spraying the fish, then rubbing the seasoning into both sides of the fish.
  • Once all pressure is released, open foodi and stir grits. Place a piece of heavy duty foil on top of the grits to cover. Lay the seasoned fish on top of the foil. Spray again with oil. 
  • Close the Air Crisp lid on the ninja foodi. Cook at 400 degrees Farenheit for 10 minutes or until fish can be easily flaked with a fork. 
  • Serve fish over grits and Enjoy :)


Notes for Ninja Foodi Fish and Grits

  • You can sub other fish if you like. 
  • I used low sodium chicken broth and unsalted butter in this recipe so I can control the amount of salt I add to suit my taste.
