Corn Flan With Spicy Shrimp

"This recipe is adapted from Cuisine at Home. It is really relative easy to make and the presentation is so elegant. The original recipe called for fresh corn; however, I made it using frozen corn that had been defrosted."

    The shrimp was right on and corn in the flan is a great flavor with the shrimp. The flan was just ok with us. I am definitely going to play around with this and get this to my taste and make this a company dish. Thank you for sharing. I love it when a recipe inspires me to experiment so 5 stars for me.

    I had a meal similar to this in New Orleans a few years ago and so I had to try was even better than the one I had at the resterant. Perfectly delightful and elegant dish also, great for entertaining! Made for ZWT5

    I found the flan VERY difficult to remove from the individual pans. Is there any reason I could use the recipe for one large flan and serve it cut into pie wedges? The taste of the flan is good, the shrimp is great. I used the Cusine recipe.

    This is an amazing dish! A friend of mine made it for our girls night and everyone just loved it. The presentation is lovely and I cannot wait to make it for guests. UPDATE = I made this for a dinner with my folks and they and my husband loved it. It turned out great!!! :)

    This is an awesome recipe! It looks (and tastes) like it required far more effort than it actually did. The corn pudding was really good with the cajun-style shrimp (I never would have thought to put the two together!). I'll be making this again. Thanks!


I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
