  • 2 cups yellow cornmeal

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning (such as Tony Chachere's®)

  • 6 eggs

  • 10 tablespoons butter, melted

  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen corn, thawed

  • 12 ounces cooked shrimp, coarsely chopped

  • 1 (8 ounce) package shredded sharp white Cheddar cheese

  • 1 cup minced yellow onion

  • 2 large jalapeno peppers, minced

  • 2 tablespoons shredded sharp white Cheddar cheese


  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.
