How to make Banh Xeo in three steps(Vietnamese Crepe with Shrimp)

I’m going to try and make some Banh Xeo (Vietnamese Crepe) next week.

It might come out all black but it’s worth a try!

Ingredients needed for Crepe Batter:

  • Rice Flour
  • White Sugar
  • Salt
  • Ground Turmeric
  • Coconut Milk
  • Water

Ingredients to fill up with Crepe:

  • Vegetable Oil
  • Minced Shallot (Your probably wondering what this is : Small Onions)
  • Garlic
  • Fresh Shrimp (Peeled)
  • Fish Sauce
  • Salt
  • Mung Bean sprouts
  • Lettuce Leaves

Time to get cooking and hope nothing explodes!

1. Cook the meat and fillings first in a nonstick skillet:

  • Cook Garlic and Shallot first for 1-2minutes
  • Then add shrimp for 3-4 minutes
  • Add fish sauce and remove and save the contents in a bowl

2. Crepe making time:

  • Assuming you made your batter already, you are now ready to cook the batter
  • Clean your Skillet and adjust to medium heat
  • Pour 1/2 cup of batter into the skillet
  • Swirl it to cover the bottom completely
  • Then throw in your fillings!
  • When you are ready, fold your crepe in half and remove it from the skillet.

3. Conclusion:

After you are done cooking the crepe. You can place it inside a 200 degrees F preheated oven to keep warm or just eat as is.
