      My first review disappeared so let's try again. This was really good though I preferred the parts separately more than together. The corn and shrimp cakes have a very delicate flavor and the salsa, though quite delicious, has such a strong flavor from the onion and pepper it overwhelmed them. I really like the zip from the chipotle and cilantro and next time will just add them to the cakes and serve them on greens with a fruit vinaigrette. I cut this down to 2 servings, which made 3 smallish cakes and to me was a single serving. I started with uncooked, shelled and deveined shrimp, and just had to boil them a few minutes to cook them, I think they have a nicer flavor then starting with already cooked shrimp. I also used frozen corn as I was only using 2 TBLS and the fresh corn is not good yet in this area. I used my mini chopper and mixed the corn, egg, and buttermilk together; it wasn't totally smooth but worked just fine. I can't wait to make these for my DH, I know he'll love them too! Thanks Boomette for sharing! Made for ZWT 7 by a Food.commando

      These are very good and a different type of meal for us -- it was a great way for us to use some cooked shrimp, corn and buttermilk -- and a fun dinner. We skipped the salsa and had this with salad instead. Very intereting and good!
