Thai-style moon shrimp cake or yueliang xiabing (simplified Chinese: 月亮虾饼; traditional Chinese: 月亮蝦餅; pinyin: yuèliàng xiābǐng) is a popular Taiwanese xiaochi. Despite its name, it originates from Taiwan rather than Thailand. Shrimp, garlic, and pork fat are pounded then spread on a circular spring roll wrapper. Another wrapper is placed over top and the cake is panfried and served with sweet chili sauce. The name is said to derive from the shape of the cake that results, like a golden full moon.[1]
