Shrimp and Scallion Pancake Recipe
  • Meal

    Main Dish

  • Cusine


2 garlic cloves, minced

3/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup water

2 eggs, beaten

1 tablespoon sesame oil

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 bunch scallions, green parts thinly sliced, white parts discarded

1/2 red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and thinly sliced

1/2 pound medium shrimp, peeled and halved lengthwise

1/4 canola oil


Whisk together the garlic, salt, water, eggs, and sesame oil in a large bowl. Add the flour, and whisk until it forms a smooth batter. Fold in the scallions, bell pepper, and shrimp. Pour half of the canola oil into a large nonstick skillet set over medium-high heat. When hot, pour in half of the batter. Use a spatula to spread the batter out evenly across the skillet. Cook for 2 minutes per side, or until nicely browned. Drain the pancake on some paper towel and repeat process with the rest of the oil and batter.
