Smoky Shrimp and Parmesan Polenta Cakes Recipe

Polenta is often made with the use of cornmeal. Historically, it’s eaten as a hot porridge or served as a loaf of bread. In this polenta cake recipe, we’ve added some meaty shrimp and a bit of salty parmesan cheese. Its pungency offsets the shrimp’s sweetness. Serve with bagged prewashed salad greens splashed with vinaigrette.
