Spoon bread is a cornmeal based side that that can be bread-like or pudding-like and hails from the southern United States. My dish is light and fluffy, savory and sweet and a great side or even a main when served with a salad or coleslaw. You can vary some of the ingredients. If you prefer, shrimp, crab or bacon are also delightful. You can also kick it up with the addition of 1-2 sliced Serrano chilies. This recipe is gluten-free and lactose-free.

This is a breeze to prepare and in addition to being a Super Green Seafood choice (see Monterey Bay blog roll), it has a wonderful south-of-the-border flavor profile with the masa breading and chipotle remoulade.
Gluten-free and a good diabetic entree choice.
