RECIPE: KOREAN SCALLION PANCAKES

Savory pancakes are a great way to use up leftover vegetables. You can shred anything including beets, but most popular re shredded cabbage, carrots, celery, and/or summer squash.

Korean Chinese pancakes, called pajeon or pa jun (photo #1), are crisper and chewier than Chinese scallion pancakes, called cong you bing.

Korean pancakes are thin and crêpe-like, made from a combination of rice flour and all-purpose wheat flour.

However, since most of us don’t have rice flour, this recipe uses only all-purpose flour.

The sauce calls for Gochujang sauce, a fermented hot pepper paste similar to Sriracha sauce (photos #3 and #4).

You can find bottles or small rectangular tubs in most grocery stores—either by the condiments (like ketchup) or in the Asian section. Or, you can use the hot sauce you have, or even chili flakes.

These yummy scallion pancakes are ready in 20 minutes, prep time is 5 minutes, and cook time is 15 minutes.

Thanks to Pampered Chef for the recipe.
 
Ingredients For 6 Servings

For The Pancakes

  • 1 cup (250 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 2 green onions with tops, thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, pressed
  • ½ teaspoon (2 mL) salt
  • ¼ teaspoon (1 mL) black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon (1 mL) sugar
  • 1 cup (250 mL) cold water
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • ½ teaspoon (2 mL) toasted sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons (10 mL) canola oil, divided
  •  
    Ingredients For The Dipping Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) gochujang
  •  
    Preparation

    1. COMBINE the flour, green onions, pressed garlic, salt, pepper, and sugar in the large bowl; mix well. Add the water, eggs, and sesame oil, and mix just until the ingredients are incorporated. Do not overmix.

    2. ADD the canola oil to a nonstick 8″ sauté pan and heat over medium heat for 1–3 minutes or until shimmering.

    3. POUR ¼ cup (50 mL) of the batter into the pan, immediately tilting and swirling the pan so the batter covers the pan bottom. When the pancake starts to bubble and the edges are golden brown…

    4. FLIP the pancake and cook an additional 45–60 seconds or until the bottom of the pancake is golden brown.

    5. REMOVE the pancake from the pan and repeat the process for the remaining pancakes.
