DIRECTIONS

  • Mix the flour and the eggs in a bowl.

  • Add scallions, parsley and shrimp.
  • Season with salt, pepper and paprika.
  • Let stand to rest for half an hour or more.
  • Heat olive oil in a frying pan.
  • Spoon in about 2 tablespoons of batter at a time, flatten with the back of the spoon into a thin pancakes.
  • Fry on each side until golden.
  • Serve immediately.
  • *note*: I ask Chef Kate if she used Pam for her griddle method. Here is her reply:
  • "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.".
