Corn Cake Waffles with Seared Shrimp and Chipotle Butter

Y’all, I’m pretty sure I could eat about 6 of these waffles!!! SOOOOOO GOOD!! Corn cake batter is so easy to throw together, but making perfect pancakes is HARD! So I decided to throw it in a waffle iron to do all the work and guys, they turned out perfect!!! Crunchy and fluffy like a waffle but slathered with spicy chipotle butter and topped with juicy seared shrimp! This cute little dish comes together in under 20 minutes and takes no effort at all!!
