Pajeon (Pan-Fried Green Onion and Seafood Pancakes)


100 grams of small green onions
50 grams of scallions
1/3 cup of clam meat
1/2 cup of oysters
1/2 cup of hard-shelled mussels
4 tablespoons of vegetable oil

Ingredients "A"

1 1/2 cup of flour
1/2 cup of rice flour
1 egg
2 cups of water

Ingredients "B"

4 tablespoons of soy sauce
2 tablespoons of vinegar
2 teaspoons of red pepper powder
1 tablespoon of finely chopped green onion
1/2 tablespoon of minced garlic
2 teaspoons of sesame seeds
2 teaspoons of sesame oil
1 teaspoon of sugar


Trim the small green onions and scallions and cut them into 4-inch
lengths. Wash oysters, clams, and hard-shelled mussels in brine (5 cups
of water and 1 teaspoon of salt) and drain on a wicker tray.

Slice oysters, clams, and hard-shelled mussels.

Beat "A" with a whisk into a light batter and mix half the chopped seafood in the batter.

Place the green onions and scallions parallel in an oiled pan at a low heat and ladle a scoop of the batter onto them.

After the patty cooks slightly, sprinkle the sea food and spread a little bit of batter again on the top.

Turn the patty and fry until each side becomes appetizingly
yellowish brown.

Serve the pan-fried green onion and sea food with
vinegar soy sauce mixed with "B".
