  • *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.".

    After reading all the great reviews, I was expecting something special from this recipe and have to say I was rather disappointed. Not that there's anything wrong with these, it's just that they aren't memorable in any way. Rather plain, bland.

    I halved the recipe and used whole salad shrimp. Absolutely delightful! Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT8- Spain/Portugal.

    While quick and easy to make we found these to be rather bland and more eggy, spongy then like a pancake. I cut the recipe in half and after making one test pancake added chopped cilantro, lemon zest and garlic powder for more flavor and this helped a bit. I got four more pancakes which I would consider 2 appetizer servings. Made for ZWT 8 by one of The Wild Bunch
