Haemul pajeon recipe (Seafood pancake)
Pajeon is a savoury pancake with spring onion in it. It can be served as a side dish either with a meal or if you are drinking. There are many varieties of Korean pancake but my favourite is the seafood variety. You can buy a bag of frozen mixed seafood from any supermarket or you can add in any other types of fish. I reckon it would even taste pretty good with chicken!
You can either use a pre-made batter or make one yourself. I prefer to make my own.
Haemul pajeoni recipe
Spicy? - No
Time to cook? 15 minutes
75g plain flour
1/2 bunch spring onions
Mixed seafood (as much as you want!)
1 teaspoon chilli powder
1) In a bowl, sift the flour and mix in the egg. Using a whisk, add in enough milk so the batter becomes sticky. It shouldn't really fall off your spoon if you hold the spoon up.
2) Chop your seafood and spring onions and mix into the batter.
3) Heat up some oil in a frying pan. Once hot, add in a couple of spoonfulls of the batter mix, shape into a pancake shape and flatten as much as you can.
4) After 3 or four minutes, the pancake should be turning golden underneath. Flip over and cook the other side. You can cook for longer if you like it crispy.
5) Once cooked, served on a plate with a small bowl of soy sauce mixed with chilli powder to use as a dip.
