A Korean restaurant recently opened near us. It is tiny, and hardly has any customers, but we just love this sharing starter. I haven’t quite captured the taste and texture of the real thing, but this is pretty lovely. We tend to have it on a Saturday evening, whilst playing Frustration with the children.

Ingredients:

Pancake

  • 75g flour (I am playing around with a combination of plain flour and rice flour)
  • 1 tsp Swiss bouillon powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 100ml cold water
  • 1 clove of garlic, sliced
  • 4 spring onions, sliced
  • 100g prawns, chopped
  • sometimes I also add peas/asparagus/bok choi
  • oil for cooking

Dipping sauce

  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • a pinch of chilli flakes
  • some toasted sesame seeds

You need a good, non stick frying pan for this.

Make up the batter and add the prawns and veg.

Heat the oil in the pan and add the batter. Cook up the pancake, turn half-way through.

Whilst the pancake is cooking mix up the dipping sauce.

When the pancake is cooked, chop into squares.

Share.

Make another one because the first one has gone too quickly…
