How to Make Korean Green Onion Pancakes [Pajeon]

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut the green section of the scallions into 5" to 6" sections. [Pancakes look more lovely when the stalks are somewhat uniform].
  2. Prepare the batter by combining the flour, water, miso paste, sugar and salt and whisking until smooth.
  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!
