Category: Sides
Shrimp Cornbread

12 - 15


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose white flour
  • 3/4 cup yellow corn flour
  • 3/4 cup yellow corn meal
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 cup granulated white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh jalapeño peppers, finely chopped
  • 5 teaspoons salt, in all
  • 1 1/2 cups green onions, thinly sliced, in all
  • 2 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 cups peeled, diced Louisiana shrimp (about 3 pounds whole shrimp)
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine both flours, corn meal, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, jalapeños, 4 teaspoons salt and 1/2 cup green onions.
  3. Blend well and set aside.
  4. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk eggs until frothy. Add 6 tablespoons melted butter and buttermilk; whisk until fully blended.
  5. Combine the egg/buttermilk mixture with the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. In a large skillet, melt the 4 tablespoons of butter over medium-high heat.
  6. Add remaining green onions and sauté for 20 seconds.
  7. Add the diced shrimp, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt and cayenne.
  8. Cook, stirring constantly, just until the shrimp are fully cooked, 2 to 3 minutes.
  9. Add the cooked shrimp to the cornbread batter and mix until fully blended.
  10. Place the shrimp cornbread batter into a shallow, buttered 9x12-inch baking pan and bake at 350°F until a knife inserted into the middle of the cornbread comes out clean and the cornbread is browned on top, 40 to 45 minutes.
