  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup water

How to cook Korean Green Onion and Shrimp Pancakes:
  • FOR THE PANCAKES - Beat 1 egg and 2 egg whites together with a fork. Whisk in the flour, 1 tablespoon oil, and water. Batter should be smooth and medium thick. Let the batter rest for 20 minutes.
  • COOKING THE PANCAKES - Beat remaining eggs and egg whites. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a skillet or a large nonstick griddle over medium-low heat. Pour out approximately 1/2 cup batter, to form a 6 to 8-inch circle.
  • Lay 1/4 of the shrimp on top of the pancake along with 1/4 of the green onions, carrots, zucchini, and chives.
  • While the pancake is cooking spoon 1/4 of remaining batter over the pancake to fill the spaces between the vegetables. After approximately 3 to 5 minutes, when the egg mixture has begun to set, flip the pancake.
  • Cook until browned, pressing down quite hard with a wide spatula to ensure that the batter cooks through. Repeat with remaining batter, shrimp, and vegetables.
  • You may refrigerate the pancakes and serve cold or serve fresh at room temperature.
