Haemul pajeon (seafood pancake) is surprisingly easy to make at home, often paired with sofu or makgeolli (Korean fizzy rice wine) in Korea. Perfect for a rainy, cold day. “Haemul” means seafood, “pa” means scallion and “jeon” is often translated to “pancake.”
Haemul pajeon is a savoury, colourful and textural experience. Each bite should be “crispy chewy” -- crispy from the fried edges and chewy on the inside with bits of delicious seafood. Dip it in the spicy soy dipping sauce and enjoy! This recipe can be made gluten-free by substituting the all-purpose flour for your gluten-free flour of choice and replacing the soy sauce with tamari.
