On the sunshine aspect of reports this week has been the overwhelmingly persistent story — or fairly, tail — of comic and producer Jensen Karp finding shrimp remains in his Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal.
On Tuesday, Karp advised TODAY Meals he was within the hospital being examined after consuming a bowl of the cereal. Within the three luggage bought from a Costco in Los Angeles, Karp and his spouse, Danielle Fishel, additionally discovered what appeared like rat droppings and dental floss. The cereal’s father or mother firm Normal Mills is investigating the state of affairs however holds the stance that the mishap will need to have occurred after leaving its facility. The newest is that Karp mailed the company some samples of the shrimp and also will have a third-party check bits of objects to find out whether or not they’re actually shrimp.
Simply as people at residence started to really feel like possibly this viral information thread was puttering out, tweeters carried out an encore. And by encore, we imply folks creating memes and cooking demos reworking the Karps’ plight into actual recipes and pretend campaigns.
“To avoid wasting their firm, Cinnamon Toast Crunch must make cereal elegant once more, and what’s classier than shrimp?” one tweeter wrote.
That is a great query. And one which podcaster and cookbook writer Josh Scherer, aka the Legendary Chef, posed when creating his Cinnamon Toast Crunch Shrimp recipe.
“I remorse to tell you that I’ve made Cinnamon Toast Crunch shrimp with charred pineapple habanero discount. Sorry. I needed to although, I actually did,” Scherer wrote on Twitter Tuesday.

Earlier than sharing how Scherer made this dish (for all of the individuals who maintained their appetites after seeing Karp’s studies of shellfish and fecal matter “cooked” into his cereal), let’s simply say that cereal can be an excellent substitute for bread crumbs when frying proteins. Jeff Mauro’s kid-friendly chicken fingers coated in Honey Nut Cereal, for instance, are crunchy, candy, tender and scrumptious.
Whereas cinnamon and shrimp could also be a extra jarring combo, the premise for this recipe is just not all that dangerous.
So right here we go. That is how Scherer made what we’re calling …
