If you want to have a little something easy to whip up for brunch on a Saturday, these “pancakes” are a great addition with fruit, a biscuit or scone. You can showcase your creativity and beauty with the pink, yellow and green colors in the pancake. Have a great tasting cup of coffee or a nice ginger lemon tea to round it all out. Enjoy!
Egg, Shrimp, and Scallion Pancakes ( as written by Andrea Nguyen in “Into the Vietnamese Kitchen, Treasured Foodways, Modern Flavors”).
1# medium shrimp peeled
5 eggs, beaten
2 scallions, chopped
Canola oil or other frying oil
Fish sauce or light soy sauce (if you have this as a main meal -I would not suggest for breakfast)
Refresh Shrimp by putting them in a colander and tossing them with a liberal amount of salt. Rinse immediately under cold water and press gently to drain well. Put the shrimp in a bowl, add the eggs and scallions, and mix well.
Put enough oil into a large nonstick skillet to coat the bottom thinly. Place over medium heat until a drop of egg immediately sizzles and bubbles upon contact with the oil. To make each pancake, ladle about 2 tablespoons of the egg mixture into the skillet, making sure that a few shrimp are included in each portion, and then quickly nudge the shrimp on each pool of egg so they don’t overlap. Fry only as many pancakes at once as will fit without over crowding, about 3 pancakes at a time in a 12-inch skillet. Don;t worry about the shape each one takes, as they are meant to be free form. When the edges of a pancake are set and lightly browned, after about 2 minutes, use a spatula to turn it carefully. Fry for another 30 seconds to 1 minute, until browned on the second side. Transfer the finished pancakes to a plate and keep them warm while you fry the rest.
