Seafood Pancake

Method

Dipping Sauce 1 Steps

  • Step 1

    Combine soy sauce, scallions, sesame oil, white sugar, sesame oil, gochugaru and toasted sesame seeds in a bowl. Add water to taste (for seasoning, as brands of soy sauce can vary in saltiness). 

Seafood Pancake 11 Steps

  • Step 1

    Combine the flour, potato starch, baking powder, salt, garlic powder and onion powder in a mixing bowl. 

  • Step 2

    Add mixed seafood and scallions.

  • Step 3

    Mix everything together, slowly adding cold water until batter consistency is slightly thicker than crepe batter. For a crispier pancake, the batter should be thinner than “Canadian-style” pancakes. You can watch Kimchi Korea House's Instagram tutorial to get an idea of the consistency you’re looking for! We suggest starting with 1/2 cup of water and adjusting from there. Add more potato starch if you’ve added too much water. 

  • Step 4

    Heat 2-3 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Before following the next few steps to make a full pancake, we recommend making a small test pancake for seasoning and consistency.

  • Step 5

    When oil is hot, pour the batter into the pan and distribute evenly. 

  • Step 6

    Working quickly, arrange red pepper slices in a circular pattern on the pancake (this will be the “presentation” side). 

  • Step 7

    Spoon the beaten egg on top of the pancake, distributing evenly. 

  • Step 8

    Cook until the bottom of the pancake is golden brown (approximately 3-5 minutes). Lower the heat if the bottom is browning too fast. 

  • Step 9

    Flip the pancake (with resolve – the pancake can sense fear!) and add more oil around the edges of the pancake (this will encourage crispy edges to form).

  • Step 10

    Cook for another 3-4 minutes until golden brown, occasionally pressing down gently on the pancake with a spatula. Move the pan every so often so that the pancake cooks evenly and doesn’t burn in any one spot. 

  • Step 11

    Cut the pancake and serve (egg and red pepper side up) with dipping sauce.
