Japanese Seafood Pancake


Yes, because most contain protein. Unlike the more familiar North American Pancake that just contains flour and sugars. 


It is a batter mixture of flour, eggs and shredded cabbage that is cooked on a hot skillet. Then topped with sliced nori seaweed and green onions

Searing the pancakes in a skillet in a little butter is what gives it the crispy texture on the outside and tender juicy inside. 

This is what pancake dreams are made of!

  • Bacon
