Bahn Trang-What is it? and how to cook it?

sushimom | Oct 29, 2002 06:20 PM

As usual, we were impulse shopping at the new 88 and came home with a mystery. The package says "Bahn Trang" and "Tom", which I think is the name of the company. The contents look somewhat like pappadams. It contains flat disks, about 7 inches in diameter. They are dark tan, with embedded sesame seeds and dried shrimp. There is no ingredient list and they appear to have no nutrients besides carbs. We've tried toasting them like a pappadam, with limited success. They do get crisy but is very easy to burn them. Maybe they should be fried in oil like a shrimp cracker? They are inedible without some kind of cooking. I would be grateful for any help. They do have a spicy, shrimpy, intriguing taste when I get a bit that is both crispy and not burned.
