Crispy Korean Seafood Pancake

Prep: 10 Mins

Cook: 15 Mins

A Korean favourite made with seafood and spring onions; this Haemul Pajeon recipe is easy to make, and even easier to devour.


  • 150g (1 cup) plain flour
  • 2 tablespoons rice flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 250ml (1 cup) cold water
  • 1 egg
  • 1 bunch spring onions
  • 16 large prawns, peeled & deveined
  • 2 whole squid
  • vegetable oil for pan frying

The Dipping Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 1 spring onion, finely sliced into rings
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes


Preparation

1. Mix all “the dipping sauce” ingredients in a bowl. Set aside.

2. Combine the flour, salt and baking powder in a bowl. Add the water and egg and stir gently until the batter is smooth and well combined.

3. Remove ends from spring onions & slice the squid into rings or thick slices.

Cooking

4. Heat 1 ½ tbsp vegetable oil in a non-stick frying pan to medium heat and then place 4-5 whole spring onions into the pan to cook through and start to char. Now pour one-quarter of the batter into pan to start to make the pancake. Scatter with one-quarter of the seafood and top with a little more batter to keep the seafood inside the pancake. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until the bottom of the pancake is golden-brown and crispy.

5. Carefully flip the pancake over and cook for a further 2-3 minutes or until cooked through.

6. Transfer pancake to a plate lined with a paper towel to absorb any excess oil. Repeat with the remaining batter and ingredients until all batter has been used.
