Nigeria - Pancakes with Shrimp

Here is another recipe from the 2010 FIFA World Cup Menu - Week 4. This one is kind of different and interesting. Definitely worth a try if you're feeling frisky!

Nigeria - Pancakes with Shrimp
Serves 8- 10


  • 2 19 oz/540ml cans of white kidney beans or any white bean
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 medium onions, finely chopped
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped in 1/4 inch pieces
  • 1 lb cooked shrimp, cut in 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil


  1. Drain the beans and place in a food processor or blender with the eggs, adding each egg one at a time. (You may need to add more or less eggs to get a nice batter consistency depending on the beans you choose)
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Pour the batter in a bowl and add the remaining ingredients except the oil. Blend
  4. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium high heat
  5. Spoon heaping tablespoons of the batter into the oil.
  6. Turn when the bottom is golden brown
  7. Keep cooked pancakes warm while frying the rest of the batter.

    Enjoy with a nice salad!
