1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2. In a saucepan, bring water, shrimp and crab boil, and garlic to a boil. Add the shrimp and corn and simmer for 5 minutes. Drain.
3. Add the Martha White Yellow Cornbread Mixes to a medium bowl. Whisk together the eggs, milk, and green onions, then add to the cornbread mixture. Stir in the drained shrimp and corn.
4. Coat a 10 inch skillet with the vegetable oil; pour the cornbread mixture in the skillet and bake for 30–35 minutes and the top is golden.
5. In a 10 inch Lodge Cast Iron Skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the flour, reduce the heat to medium, and stir continuously until the flour is a medium-brown color, about 15 minutes.
