No one will stop at just one bite with this crispy seafood pancake accompanied by a delightful savoury and tangy soy dip! According to the Koreans, savoury pancakes are THE comfort food that should be eaten during rainy days and that seafood pancakes are also best paired off with ‘makgeolli‘ (milky rice liquor).
Haemul pajeon,or Korean seafood pancake, is highly addictive and it is so easy to make; you won’t pull any mussels doing so. The traditional base of a savoury Korean pancake (jeon) more often than not consists of a batter of flour, glutinous rice flour, eggs and heavily features spring onions (pa).
Rice flour is added into the batter to give the pancakes that extra crisp. Popular ingredients to add into the pancake base are seafood, meat or kimchi. You can easily tweak this recipe to mix and match the variety of seafood that you prefer too!
The dip sauce is made with a soy base and seasoned with vinegar, Korean chilli flakes, green onions and toasted sesame seeds. This tangy soy sauce pairs perfectly with the seafood pancake to give it that extra oomph.
With such a simple and delicious recipe on hand though, we won’t be waiting for any rainy days to make it!
