Cut shrimp into small pieces. Season with salt and pepper and set aside so the flavor can seep in.
Meanwhile, whisk together the cornmeal, flour, 1 teaspoon salt, cayenne, paprika. Add milk and egg and stir.
Add onions, celery, chives, and shrimp and stir with a wooden spoon. The batter should be thick.
Preheat oil to 350°F.
When the oil is ready, use a mini cookie scooper to scoop some of the batter and carefully lower into the hot oil.
Cook 3 to 5 minutes or until golden brown, then place on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil. When ready, eat!
