Savory pancakes are popular snacks in Korea and Japan. For example, okonomiyaki is a savory Japanese pancake made with shredded cabbage, eggs, flour, meat, and various condiments. I have sampled these pancakes, and I enjoy them quite a bit.

This morning, I woke up craving sardines and eggs—so I thought of creating a savory pancake with sardines. The outcome was wonderful! On top of the pancake, I drizzled some of the tomato sauce that the sardines were packed in. I also tried dipping the pancake in a homemade spicy soy-vinegar dip. The balance between salt, sour, and spice was delicious.

This pancake is perfect for breakfast or as a snack. You could also try serving it with mayonnaise or ketchup.

        Hi Liz,

        Absolutely right! It maybe canned but what matters is how we cook it. I also like the idea of making something new that I can eat for breakfast.
