- 100g squid, cut into small pieces or rings
- 100g raw king prawns
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- 2 tsp toasted sesame seeds
- 2 tsp sesame oil
- 100g plain flour
- 3 tbsp cornflour
- 2 free-range eggs, beaten
- 2-3 tbsp of sunflower oil
- 6 spring onions, sliced lengthways
- 1/2 each green and red chilli, finely chopped
- 4 tbsp of soy sauce
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 2 tsp rice wine vinegar
- 1 tsp toasted sesame seeds
- Put the seafood into a bowl with the garlic, sesame seeds and oil, and season. In a separate bowl, mix the flours and eggs; slowly whisk in 150ml cold water. Season.
- Put a 22cm non-stick shallow frying pan over a medium heat; add the sunflower oil. When hot, reduce the heat; ladle in two-thirds of the batter. Spread out the spring onions onto the pancake; add the chillies and seafood. Drizzle over the remaining batter, pressing it with a fish slice.
- Fry over a medium heat for 3-4 minutes until the bottom is set then carefully invert the pancake onto a plate and slide it back into the pan and fry for a further 3-4 minutes, or until the fish is cooked and the pancake is golden and crispy. Serve in slices with the dipping sauce.
