Shrimp Tamale Casserole with Three Sisters Black Mole

From EatingWell:  January/February 2009

This version of tamales, made into a casserole rather than little cornhusk-wrapped bundles, can be whipped up in minutes and has the same great taste and texture of traditional tamales. It's filled with shrimp here, but this is a forgiving recipe that works well stuffed with whatever you like. Quick-cooking seafood, such as scallops, cheese or even some of the mole also make great fillings. Serve the casserole topped with Three Sisters Black Mole or your favorite salsa. Adapted from Chef Jesùs González, of La Cocina Que Canta at Rancho La Puerta.

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Put a kettle of water on to heat for the water bath. Coat an 8-inch-square baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk masa, oregano, baking powder, thyme, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add 2 cups water and beat with an electric mixer until combined. With the mixer on low speed, add more water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the mixture is the consistency of thick pancake batter. Add oil and butter. Increase mixer speed to medium-high and continue beating, scraping down the sides, for 4 minutes more.
  3. Spread half the batter in the prepared baking dish. Evenly scatter shrimp on top, then cover with the remaining batter, smoothing it evenly to the sides. Place the baking dish in a larger pan, transfer to the oven and pour boiling water into the larger pan to about halfway up the sides of the baking dish. Cover both pans with a piece of foil. Bake until set, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Let stand, covered, for 10 minutes. Serve each portion with 2 tablespoons Three Sisters Black Mole, or to taste.
