Smoky Shrimp and Parmesan-Polenta Cakes

Invite company over for this gourmet-inspired dish that's a snap to make. Smoked paprika, available in supermarkets, is nice to spice up sour cream, eggs, or rice. Its pungency offsets the shrimp's sweetness. Serve with bagged prewashed salad greens splashed with vinaigrette.
