Holly's Shrimp Corn Bread

Holly Haines

"Why make plain corn bread when you can make this fancier version with shrimp, Creole seasoning, and Cheddar cheese? This recipe was made in a Panasonic CIO and appears on an episode of the Dinner Spinner TV Show on The CW!"

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). (If using a countertop induction oven, preheat to 325 degrees (165 degrees C)). Grease a 9-inch baking dish.
  2. Combine cornmeal, baking powder, salt, and Creole seasoning in a bowl. Add eggs and butter; mix until smooth. Fold corn, shrimp, 8 ounces Cheddar cheese, onion, and jalapeno peppers into the batter. Spread in the prepared dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 25 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons Cheddar cheese on top; continue baking until melted, 2 to 3 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Substitute langostino, crawfish, lobster, or prawns for the shrimp if desired. You can also add cooked sausage.
  • Substitute your favorite semi-hard cheese for the white Cheddar cheese if desired.
  • Remove the seeds from the jalapeno pepper for less heat.

I did add roasted red pepper to the mix, plus I semi cook the shrimp with garlic and a blend of fresh spices and a touch of lemon. Also I subs the yellow onion mice for sheredd red onion.

This had an interesting texture. Unfortunately, mine came out a little dry. Possibly because I tried to cut the recipe in half without doing the math. I will try again!

This had a really nice flavor! I used a combo of shrimp and crab. Mine did come out a bit on the dry side, but that could've been my fault. The spicy/sweet combo was great! I would make this ag...

I would have never thought to add shrimp or other proteins to cornbread...but what a great way to get extra protein! This was a crowd-pleaser!
