  • Hi everybody!

  • Today I came here with a very simple recipe!

  • I'm going to show you how to make a seafood pancake.

  • Haemul-jeon in Korean.

  • Are you a seafood lover?

  • Then it will be a perfect recipe for you.

  • Korean pancakes are different from the pancakes you're thinking about.

  • Eating those pancakes for breakfast with some maple syrup

  • These are not like that.

  • Korean pancakes are called "jeon"

  • So today we are making haemul-jeon, "haemul" is seafood.

  • You need only a few ingredients.

  • So I chose squid, shrimp, and clams.

  • But you can use other kinds of seafood if you want, such as scallops or mussels.

  • But these are my family's all-time favorite.

  • I want to show you how to clean these just in case you don't know how to handle this seafood.

  • We need one pound of seafood.

  • From here and there, from these 3 kinds of seafood we'll just use only 1 pound.

  • This is squid.

  • Don't cut through, just only on this part a little bit.

  • So now I just open this and pull it up.

  • And remove, this is the bone for this guy.

  • And we have to remove the skin.

  • So I use salt.

  • So, very clean!

  • And, so cut around this part...

  • And this is the mouth.

  • Discard.

  • That's super easy to clean.

  • It took only one minute.

  • And now, shrimp.

  • I'm not going to use it all, just I want to show you how to handle this.

  • The shrimp, remove all shells.

  • And each shrimp, cut this...

  • And remove any veins.

  • Sometimes it has intestines.

  • Dirty stuff is inside.

  • This shrimp is very clean.

  • I use this large shrimp but you can use any size of shrimp.

  • Next, the clams.

  • Clams are like this, the clam meat is very clean.

  • But I like to wash and quickly rinse.

  • You have to wash this nicely.

  • So my seafood is really clean.

  • I'm going to measure exactly one pound.

  • So now a little bit of this and a little bit of this I'm going to add.

  • Shrimp first/

  • And just cut.

  • Let me see this... the clams.

  • And let's see how much is this...

  • I usually don't measure, but for you, I'm going to show you the accurate measurement.

  • This is one pound.

  • We are going to make a pancake and this leftover,

  • right after this I'm going to make an extra pancake.

  • The squid, I have to chop it up.

  • And clams...

  • I'm going to mince this just a little bit.

  • Not too finely.

  • With my knife, like this.

  • (music plays)

  • (chopping and music)

  • And put it in this bowl.

  • This is one pound chopped seafood.

  • I washed my cutting board.

  • We need to season and mix with batter.

  • Two green onions and one green chili pepper.

  • And add this here.

  • Red carrot. I will add just a little bit for color.

  • Just a little, maybe one tablespoon.

  • Just something red a little bit here.

  • Let's add one egg.

  • Flour, a half cup.

  • Half cup potato starch.

  • If you don't have potato starch just use one cup flour.

  • but potato starch makes it look really translucent and more crunchy.

  • So that's why I'm using half cup, half cup.

  • Water, half cup water.

  • We need to add some seasonings, one tablespoon fish sauce.

  • Quarter teaspoon salt.

  • Ground black pepper.

  • About half teaspoon.

  • Last touch, sesame oil!

  • Even here I add some sesame oil, it tastes much much better

  • than without sesame oil.

  • And then mix this with a spoon.

  • Look at that so colorful, it already looks very delicious if this is cooked, isn't it?

  • Ok let's cook!

  • Turn the heat to medium heat.

  • My mom made this type of pancake.

  • Always early in the morning, I'd follow my mom to go to the market.

  • Going to the market is always interesting, since I was young.

  • And then she came home and then she pounded and chopped up everything

  • and then made a really hot pancake.

  • i just still remember my father loved that.

  • It has to be medium heat.

  • (sizzling)

  • A few minutes later you will see the bottom of the pancake is a little crunchy

  • and then flip over.

  • Outside should be crunchy, so I add a generous amount of oil.

  • This is squid.

  • Squid chunk.

  • This is kind of my bonus. (laughs)

  • Mmm! (laughs)

  • Second batch.

  • This size is around 3 inches wide and 1/2 inch thick.

  • Cook this over medium heat but sometimes to make it crunchy and a little bit brownish

  • and then medium high heat.

  • It smells so good!

  • In Korea, one day before festival days, every family makes this kind of pancake.

  • So suddenly all this town or if you live in the countryside, the village smells so good everywhere.

  • It makes all of us in a festive mood!

  • Altogether 2 minutes, 2 minutes and 1 minute more, around 5 minutes.

  • 5 or 6 minutes after, you can get this really crunchy and fully well cooked pancakes.

  • Ok, done!

  • For Koreans it's a side dish, banchan, eat with rice.

  • Rice is bland, this is a little salty, so it's a perfect side dish.

  • Mmm! (laughs) MMMMMM!

  • So delicious! That's it! In Korea a lot of housewives make this for a special occasion

  • but it doesn't have to be a special occasion, you can make it anytime.

  • All these ingredients are very fresh, the flavor from the green chili pepper is

  • really awesome, and also the texture of each different ingredient is really chewy, springy,

  • and succulent! So delicious!

  • Mmm!

  • Today I showed you how to make haemuljeon, seafood pancake.

  • Enjoy my recipe, see you next time!

  • Bye!

Hi everybody!
