Eating with Ellie: Japanese-style savory pancakes with shrimp~

11 02 2015

Chaya selected this week’s recipe….Japanese-style savory pancakes with shrimp, found on page 183 of Weeknight Wonders.  What a hit at my house!

EwE-Japanesepancakes2This recipe is reminiscent of egg foo young in that it makes a battered vegetable pancake…but there are no bean sprouts nor is it heavily eggy.  It was more like a fritter in that regard.  However, without regard, this is quick and tasty…pretty much a weeknight wonder!

EwE-Japanesepancakes1I made a half-batch for the two of us as a “snacky” kind of dinner.  We had eaten lunch rather late, so we weren’t really very hungry….even so we ate every bite.   Cabbage, onions, carrots and garlic come together with bits of shrimp held together with a whole wheat pancake batter that was very light.  Hubby found these utterly wonderful and told me not to lose track of this recipe, as he “could eat a mess of these!”  The recipe also had a sauce to brush on top…very simple…ketchup, soy and Worcestershire sauce stirred together.  Next time…a few drops of toasted sesame oil will go into the sauce as well.  I’d also like to try Ponzu (a lemony soy sauce) or hoisin sauce with these.  Definitely a “keeper” recipe!

I really liked these, but B not a fan. Yours look perfectly browned.

Your pancakes look great! I did a poor job on mine, so the result was poor.

Those look nice and tasty…we were sort of so-so on them as far as a repeat adventure goes. I don’t know what egg foo yung is but I trust your judgment on this. I ate one just like she said and used the rest in lettuce wraps, because if you know anything about my eating habits, everything is better in a lettuce wrap!! 🙂 Happy they were a hit at your place, nice to find hits!

I am glad you liked these. We did also. This is my kind of food. It made for a different kind of meal one, we also devoured.
