      "Just dry--using the smooth plates of an electric waffle iron with removable plates-I got it good and hot and then cooked them, letting them cook on one side and then turning only once - No sticking and really delicious and a lot less calories and fat.".

      This made a lot more than what I expected! I made as directed except I put 1/4 of the batter aside before adding the shrimp and added cooked chicken to the small amount for my one son. Probably not the healthiest dish to make but darn good!!! These would be awesome for appetizers and you could use whatever you want in it. I have to admit that I loved the large chopped shrimp! Made for my fellow Chef Gone Wild for ZWT8. Thanks Annacia! :)

      I did a couple of things differently but still within the bounds of your recipe! Reading the reviews I decided to leave the shrimp whole and used 3 shrimp to each little pancake -each pancake was apprx 2" across. Also I added 1 tsp chili flakes and a minced clove of garlic. Loved them. I made the whole recipe and I will try freezing the rest. Will post a further review when I defrost them Thanks Annacia for a great Sunday appetizer to compliment my Mart Mart
