With more eggs than traditional pancakes this deliciously savoury Asian-style dish is a little bit like a mix of an omelette and a pancake. These are unlikely to be like any you have tasted before; full of fish and flavour, they contrast thin pancakes with chunky fillings perfectly. We love the juicy prawns as a filling but if you prefer you could use a little cooked chicken instead.

HOW TO MAKE KOREAN PANCAKES

Ingredients

  • 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
  • For the dipping sauce:
  • 4 tbsp of soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame seeds

Method

  • 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.
