Chef’s tips and suggestions :
Enjoy your Bánh xèo pancakes filled with a blend of chopped onion, soy, peeled prawns, thin strips of pork and spices. Stir fry this filling in the pan and spread over one half of a Bánh xèo pancake. Fold the pancake in half, like a turnover, and place a few salad leaves on the side. Serve your pancake with soy sauce and garnish with the chives and a slice of lemon.
