Description

These little treats are easy to make and are simply scrumptious. They are so cute to serve for any get-together or party. I highly suggest investing in a mini muffin pan because the options and recipes are endless.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE CORNBREAD:
  • 1 cup Cornmeal
  • 1 cup Flour
  • ¼ cups Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ¼ teaspoons Cayenne Pepper
  • ¼ teaspoons Smoked Paprika
  • 1 whole Egg, Beaten
  • 1 cup Milk
  • ⅓ cups Vegetable Oil
  • 1 cup Cheddar Cheese, Shredded
  • FOR THE SHRIMP:
  • 1 pound Medium Raw Shrimp, Peeled And Deviened
  • 2 Tablespoons Cajun Seasoning
  • FOR THE ROASTED RED PEPPER AIOLI
  • 2 whole Red Bell Peppers
  • 1 cup Mayonnaise
  • ½ whole Lemon, Juiced
  • ½ teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Sriracha

Preparation

Preheat your oven to 400 F.

In a medium bowl combine the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cayenne, and paprika. In a separate bowl whisk together the egg, milk, vegetable oil and cheese. Slowly whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until fully incorporated and mixed.

In a separate bowl toss the shrimp with the Cajun seasoning.

Grease a 24-count mini muffin pan with cooking spray. Fill the cups about three-quarters full, using half of the batter.

Add one shrimp to each of the cups on top of the cornbread batter.

Bake until a toothpick inserted into center of the muffins comes out clean, about 12 minutes. Transfer pan to a wire rack, and let muffins cool for 5 minutes. Turn muffins out of the pan onto a cooling rack. Repeat with remaining batter.

While cornbread is cooking prepare the aioli. Roast red peppers on a preheated grill over high direct heat until the peppers look charred and skin is blistered on all sides. Remove peppers from the grill and immediately place in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Sweat the peppers for 15 minutes. Then remove the plastic wrap from the bowl, rub skin off of the peppers and remove stems and seeds. Place peppers in a blender or food processor with mayonnaise, lemon juice, kosher salt and Sriracha. Blend until smooth.

Serve the roasted red pepper aioli on top or on the side of the Cajun Shrimp Cornbread Bites. Enjoy!
