Chipotle Shrimp Skewers with Corn Cakes
See, I did it again. I have a long name for my recipe. I want to be thorough though and make sure you understand completely what you are about to experience.
I apologize for the pictures. We had a busy evening and I only had a quick minute to plate them and take a picture before we ate and ran. These were awesome. The marinade is something I want to try on chicken or steak too!
The corn cakes were so simple too, just using a couple boxes of Jiffy corn mix (you know those little blue boxes that cost about 45 cents). Yeah, I cheated. Don’t judge me. I decked ’em out though by adding some stuff. That redeems me, right? What if I told you I used canned pineapple chunks? Hey, I wasn’t even planning to make this, no time or desire to run out to get a real pineapple. Which I have done before. And love. I even know how to cut it. But, instead Dole helped me out by putting it in a can in my pantry. Sometimes convenience rules the dinner.
Don’t like shrimp you say? Ahh, sound like my husband. Who I might add ate a whole skewer without complaining. I love him. He loved the flavor of the marinade, he just hates the texture of shrimp. So use this marinade on chicken or beef. Awesome.
