Taiwanese-style Seafood ‘Pancake’

This delicious snack or quick mid-week supper is inspired by my love of the oyster omelettes that you get in the street food stalls found in the night markets in Taiwan. It involves making a thin, egg crêpe-like pancake. The trick is to stir-fry the seafood first and then pour in the potato and cornflour batter and cook it like a thin eggy crêpe. Serve it with a spicy sweet concoction of hoisin, oyster and sriracha sauces – so umami and full of yum!

If you’re vegan, you can use an assortment of sliced fresh shiitake, shimeji and enoki mushrooms instead of the seafood.
