The Shrimp omelete It is one of the quintessential Andalusian recipes of the season of Lent. The typical shrimp omelettes are made with chickpea flour, but at RecetasGratis we propose a version in which we have substituted the chickpea flour for cornstarch.
If you are celiac, we recommend using chickpea, since it is a type of flour that is gluten-free and provides more flavor, however, since cornstarch is also gluten-free, you can use it. Likewise, both corn and chickpea flour are two types of flour ideal for making batters and tempuras.

We list the ingredients that we are going to need to make this shrimp omelette recipe so that we can cook more comfortably.
First, chop the onion as fine as we can. Why? So that it releases as much juice as possible and impregnates the base of our particular shrimp pancakes. You will see.
We toss the onion in a wide source, and we add half of the salt, the parsley and the coloring.
Now add the cornstarch and water and stir everything well. We recommend you try the point of salt in case it should be corrected so that the shrimp tortillas without chickpea flour are perfect.
Add the shrimp and let the base stand and soak the seafood in the mixture for at least 30 minutes.
In very hot oil, which I smoked, we fry one by one the shrimp tortillas without chickpea flour. They are made very fast so stay tuned. Round and round, if the oil is on point. We place them on absorbent paper to remove excess oil and present them to eat. Delicious!
We can accompany the shrimp pancakes with a good Andalusian salad or make other tapas such as ham croquettes or fried fish.
