There is no photo for this recipe because it looks like a pancake until you bite into it. This takes 15 minutes to make and costs almost nothing, but still feels kind of special.
Feel free to play around with the chiles, garlic, and green onion bit. I’ve done this before with chopped kim chi instead and had great results.
Dried Shrimp Pancakes:
- 1 cup flour
- up to 1 cup water
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup dried shrimp, soaked
- 1/4 cup mixed chopped fresh chiles, garlic, and green onions
- salt and sugar
- soy sauce and sriracha sauce
Mix together the flour, shrimp, chiles, garlic, and green onions. You want to add a cup total of liquid. I usually do this by adding a dash of sriracha and around 1/4 cup of soy sauce to the measuring cup, then adding enough water to make a cup. This is optional, but makes the whole thing more flavorful. Mix in the liquid, then beat in the egg. If you didn’t add soy sauce and sriracha, mix in 1/4 tsp each of sugar and salt. Cook on a lightly oiled skillet, just like a pancake. This makes 3 large pancakes, usually.
