  • 1 large zucchini
  • 200g shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 1 carrot, julienned
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  1. Prepare the Zucchini:
    • Shred the zucchini and place it in a colander. Add a pinch of salt and allow it to sit for 10 minutes to extract excess moisture.
    • Squeeze the shredded zucchini with your hands or a clean cloth to remove as much water as possible.
  2. Prepare the Shrimp:
    • Chop the peeled and deveined shrimp into small pieces.
  3. Combine Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the shredded zucchini, chopped shrimp, finely chopped green onion, finely diced small onion, and julienned carrot.
    • Add the egg, flour, salt, and pepper to the bowl. Mix well until all ingredients are evenly distributed and the mixture holds together.
  4. Form the Pancake Pockets:
    • Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat and add a thin layer of vegetable oil.
    • Scoop about 2 tablespoons of the mixture into the skillet for each pancake, flattening them slightly with the back of the spoon to form small, round pockets.
  5. Cook the Pancakes:
    • Cook the pancakes for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and crispy. Modify the heat as necessary to avoid burning.
    • Remove the pancakes from the skillet and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
  6. Serve:
    • Serve the Shrimp and Zucchini Pancake Pockets warm with your favorite dipping sauce or a side salad.
