【Shrimp and green onion pancake】
Talking about pancakes, like most of you, I have had many types of sweet panckes. I also made a few of them for my family, such as Lemon Chia Seed Pancakes and Blueberry pancakes. Today, this shrimp and green onion pancake is not sweet version, but a savory type without added sugar and only with very little oil used, very healthy. Maomao is backing home for his reading week, so I made these pancakes for breakfast, he loved them.
