As we all know, Pajeon (파전) is a traditional Korean-style pancake that served as appetizer or snack. It is a very simple dish that made from eggs, flour batter, scallions or green onions. It is best served with vinegar or soy sauce for dipping.
In translation, pajeon derives from pa (파) means scallion in Korea and jeon (전) that means battered ingredients. The basic and regular pajeon is just consisting of scallions and flour with eggs. But you can add the delicacy with seafood, vegetables, or even leftover kimchi at your house.
The dish is also very easy to make. You can buy ready-made batter available at the groceries. For the ingredients, you can put anything to your own taste. My favorite is seafood hae-mul pajeon (해물 파전) that consists a little bit of oysters, shrimps, squids, and fresh baby clams. A regular pan of pajeon is enough to feed three to four hungry mouths. Pajeon is also best served together with Makgeolli.
