Combine raw shelled shrimp, green onions and salt, Szechuan pepper, and a small amount of sweet wine. Add water and flour, then sear in sesame oil until done.
*What is a “Bing” (餅)? It’s been translated variously as cookie, biscuit, cake, bread, etc., but this Chinese term does not really have a good English equivalent. Basically a bing could be any flattened, disk-like starchy food that is typically dry and crisp, though not exclusively so. The French word galette is actually pretty good translation, but I don’t think it has been well adopted enough into English to use it here. As such, I’ve decided to use it as the transliterate word here and for the rest of this chapter.
