For the garlic mayonnaise:

cup mayonnaise

2 tablespoons Dijon or Creole mustard

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

2 tablespoons chopped garlic

For the shrimp:

cup vegetable oil

1 tablespoon chili powder

teaspoon salt

teaspoon cayenne

1 teaspoon chopped garlic

medium onion, sliced thinly

4 2-inch squares corn bread (Use box mix like Jiffy)

To make garlic mayonnaise: Whisk all of the ingredients together in a bowl. Make a day ahead of time and refrigerate to let the flavors blend.

To prepare shrimp: Mix oil, spices, and garlic together in a bowl. Add shrimp and toss to coat. Cover and let marinate in refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours. Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp, the marinade, and the onion, and cook until the shrimp are pink and firm, 4 to 5 minutes, depending on the size of the shrimp.

Split corn bread squares and spread both halves with the garlic mayonnaise. Put 2 corn bread halves on each of 4 plates and spoon shrimp over bread.

Yield: 4 servings
