  • 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.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 25 minutes.

  • 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.

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! Read More

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 again. Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

Like many others mine came out very with a strange texture. The shrimp and corn came out good and the taste was good but I wonder if adding sugar more seasoning and a couple of ounces of water or milk would have made it better. Read More
