If you have some fresh spinach, onion, and flour, you can make this Korean style spinach pancakes with very little effort. You will love the crisp texture outside. This might inspire a spinach hater to reconsider their preference. Serve with a lemon soy dipping sauce.
Cut spinach about 1.5-inch long pieces and place them in a large mixing bowl. Add the onion, salt, and 1 cup of flour to the spinach.
Pour 1/2 cup of water and toss everything together by using a spoon or a tong. Add more flour and water if you prefer doughier pancakes. The batter consistency can be adjusted by your preference.
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place a spoonful of spinach batter in a hot skillet and fry for 2-3 minute or until golden and crispy. Flip to the other side and continue to fry for another 2-3 minute. If your skillet seems dry, drizzle more oil as needed.
Serve the pancakes hot with the dipping sauce.
To make the dipping sauce, combining the soy sauce, lemon juice, and toasted sesame seeds in a small mixing bowl.
This is a simplest spinach pancakes. If you like it more hearty and satisfying, add some seafood like shrimp, squid, and/or mussel. Just add to the pancake batter along with spinach, and pan-fry together. Delicious!
Just the perfect round up I was looking for! Cannot wait to try these pancake recipes! Looking forward to trying the seafood pajeon one, perhaps tonight!
I forgot my rating because I was mesmerized by the pancake pictures, smile. Pancakes, Pancakes, Pancakes!
I found 3 new options that I feel sure will become new favorites! Sweet Potatoes with Brown Sugar filling, I can see that filling inside my crispy outside little fish snack (instead of the red beans). Have you tried using it as an option yet? If so, let me know of possible mistakes/pitfalls to avoid.
I see pancakes in my June 17th breakfast future! 🙂
Thanks for always keeping the recipe ideas fresh and up to date. What did I do before I found your blog, oh, right I
spent a lot of time eating out in Korean are of Gwinnett and the Buford Hwy area (outskirts of Atlanta GA), smile.
Glad that I encounter another pancake lover like I am.
As for your little fish snack you mentioned, if the batter of the fish snack is too thin like liquid, adding brown sugar filling might not work well. The sugar will melt in the batter and be absorbed. It might not turn into syrup like you would hope.
Hope you enjoy your pancakes on the 17th. Is 17th a special day for you?
Wow, I didn’t realize there are so many fun options for Korean pancakes! I’m down to try them all! The first ones (scallions with seafood) and the crispy spinach ones are both calling my name first. What a fun idea!!
I would love to try every single one, esp. those with radish and scallions. Love your chopsticks…so cute.
Thank you, Angie. Hope you get to try them all.
