Mind Blowing Shrimp Pancakes

On February 1st, 2018 my life changed. I started to see the world in a different light, especially my breakfast. Why? Because I made shrimp pancakes.

I know what you’re thinking but just stop thinking it. Stop thinking about the sweet maple syrup covered pancakes you’re used to and look at them with a different lens. Imagine a pancake that’s savory, just a little spicy, and truly satisfies every taste bud. This shrimp pancake recipe but Jessica Tong RD will be sure to leave you speechless.



  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup red bell peppers, chopped
  • 1/4 cup scallions, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • small bunch of cilantro, chopped
  • 6-8 shrimp, raw & peeled, chopped


  1. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, red bell peppers, scallions, ginger and red peppers flakes.
  2. In another bowl, mix milk, egg, and sesame oil. Then combine wet and dry ingredients and stir. Mixture should be well combined but will be lumpy.
  3. Heat some oil in a pan over medium heat. Drop a spoonful or two of batter into pan and press pieces of raw shrimp into batter. When bottom is fully cooked, flip pancake and cook until batter is fully cooked.
  4. Serve on plate and top with chopped cilantro
