These were really good. The shrimp was a nice touch to our average corn cakes. I had never used corn flour until this recipe, but it sure gave these cakes a wonderful texture when mixed with the corn meal. Thanks so much for sharing with us. {Made for PRMR game} We ate these with Good Ole' Down Home in Georgia Southern Fried Chicken and sliced tomatoes for a wonderful meal.

WONDERFULLY UNUSUAL & TASTY, & a real winner on my finger food table the other evening! Another time I'll definitely have to double the recipe at least! Almost left the cayenne pepper out, but am glad I didn't, 'cause it added a nice touch! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe cooking game]
