Somethin' fishy about this Shrove Tuesday!

Seeing as I made pancakes just a couple of Saturdays ago, I wasn't really in the mood to make them again today. But it is Shrove Tuesday; and I'm a stickler for tradition as well as it being another opportunity to introduce this tradition to my new international child. So, pancakes it would be for dinner.

But pancakes with a decidedly Korean twist!

Hae Mul Pa Jeon (해물파전) or Seafood Pancake

Into a very small, simple flour, salt and water pancake batter, you toss lots and lots of julienned green onions, chives and zucchini. Spread it out in a heated, oiled skillet. Cook for a little, then sprinkle with lovely chunks of chopped shrimp (and squid, if you like it & can find it -- I do but couldn't find it today). Cook slowly until the first side is golden. Then just before flipping it, pour on one beaten egg. Carefully flip it, fry until golden on the other side and serve with a soy sauce/vinegar dip.

Savory ..... nutritious .... satisfying ..... yummy!

It's definitely different Sandy! I am allergic to seafood so would have to give this one a miss! It does look tasty though! xxoo


That looks scrumptious. I love seafood.
