From the Test Kitchen

This zesty, seasonal dish calls on beloved flavors of the South, like smoky spiced shrimp and cornbread-style pancakes, which get a fresh twist from bites of sweet corn stirred right into the batter.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Remove any husks and silks from the corn; cut the kernels off the cobs. In a bowl, combine the chopped garlic, sliced white bottoms of the scallions, and half the corn kernels. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores, then medium dice. Halve the tomatoes. Place in a bowl; season with salt and pepper.

Make the corn pancakes
2 Make the corn pancakes

To make the batter, in a medium bowl, combine the cornbread mix, egg, remaining corn kernels, and 1/4 cup of water. Whisk to thoroughly combine. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Scoop or pour the batter into the pan to make 4 equal-sized pancakes, keeping them separate. Cook 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

Cook the shrimp
3 Cook the shrimp

Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels; remove the tails. Place in a bowl; season with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). Toss to thoroughly coat. In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned shrimp. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, or until opaque and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.

Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the butter and seasoned tomatoes. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the butter is melted and the tomatoes are softened. Turn off the heat.
