- 1 zucchini sliced into thin ribbons
- 4 green onions
- 2 Tbsp canola oil
- ½ tsp salt, divided
- 8 large shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1 tsp fish sauce
- ½ tsp sesame oil
- 1/3 cup all purpose flour
- 2 Tbsp cornstarch
- ½ cup water
- 1 egg
- Soy sauce for serving
- Slice the zucchini into thin ribbons using a Y vegetable peeler or a mandoline slicer and set aside. Cut the green onions into 5” long pieces and set aside.
- Heat canola oil in a large nonstick pan over medium high heat. Once the oil is hot add the zucchini. Season with ¼ tsp of salt and toss the zucchini. Continue to cook for 5 minutes, until the zucchini is tender.
- Add the green onions and the shrimp to the pan. Season with ¼ tsp salt, fish sauce, and sesame oil. Toss to combine and continue to cook for another 2 minutes. Arrange the shrimp and veggies in the pan so that they are evenly dispersed.
- In a small bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, and water. Whisk until smooth. Pour the batter over the ingredients in the pan. Whisk the egg in a small bowl and then drizzle the egg over the batter.
- Allow the pancake to cook for 5 minutes, until the bottom is golden brown and the edges are somewhat firm. Place a large plate over the pancake in the pan. Keep a firm grip and then flip the pan over and allow the pancake to lay on the plate. Slide the pancake back into the pan and allow to cook for another 3 minutes, until golden brown and the egg and batter is set.
- Place the pancake on a clean plate and cut into 2” squares. Enjoy with soy sauce for dipping.
