In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, mustard, cornichons, and brine and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Stir in the eggs and 1/2 cup water. Fold in the corn and shrimp.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Working in 3 batches, spoon four mounds of the batter (about 1/4 cup each) into the skillet and cook until golden brown and cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side, adding more oil to the skillet as necessary. Serve the cakes with the mayonnaise mixture and a green salad, if desired.
