Step-by-Step

  3. Heat vegetable oil in a skillet. Place onion on hot oil in a square that looks like a "picket fence".
  4. Pour batter evenly over onions. Fry for a few minutes until bottom of pancake is golden brown. Using a large spatula, carefully flip pancake and repeat process.
  5. Serve hot [with Pajeon Sauce]!
  6. For Pajeon Sauce, simply combine soy sauce, vinegar, honey, shallots, baby chives and sesame seeds. Enjoy!
