  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Coat six 4-oz flan molds with nonstick spray or olive oil.
  • Blend corn, half and half and feta in a blender until almost smooth.
  • Add the eggs, yolks, salt and pepper pulsing to combine.
  • Place the flan dishes in a roasting pan and fill with corn mixture.
  • Place the pan in the oven and pour hot water half-way up the sides of the flan dishes.
  • Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until the tip of a knife comes out clen.
  • Remove flans from the water bath and cool 3 to 5 minutes before unmolding on serving plates.
  • For the shrimp, combine the flour and seasonings in a bowl; add the shrimp and toss well to coat.
  • In a large skillet, warm the oil and butter over medium-high heat, add the shrimp and cook just until browned on both sides but not cooked through; transfer to a plate.
  • Deglaze the pan with wine, scraping up any brown bits on the bottom of pan.
  • Simmer until reduced by half, approximately 2 to 4 minutes; add the broth and simmer an additional 2 to 4 minutes.
  • Add shrimp back to pan and cook until firm and sauce thickens, about 2 minutes.
  • Stir in butter and let melt; spoon the shrimp and sauce over unmolded flans; garnish with chopped chives.
