Seafood Pancake

Recipe: Seafood Pancake


Summary: Last week, I bought a bag of Korean pancake powder, a bag of frozen seafood mix, and some green onions and made Korean seafood pancake (Pa Jeon). I found making Pa Jeon so much easier with this pancake powder.


  • 2 cups of Korean Pancake Powder
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1/2 of frozen seafood mix
  • Thin sliced green onions
  • 1t salt
  • Dipping sauce: Soy sauce with a little bit of vinegar


  1. Make batter with pancake powder and water
  2. Add sliced green onions, seafood mix and salt
  3. Mix them well
  4. Add vegetable oil to a pan and heat it
  5. Spread batter on the pan and cook it in the medium heat
  6. Once the edge turns crispy, flip it and cook it until it turns golden.
  7. Serve it with soy sauce

    I didn’t know you could buy the Pancake Powder. I’ll have to look at H-Mart 🙂

    This recipe is sooooooo easy and the pancake tastes delish!!! The recipes on this site are simple and tasty. I think I am going to try all of them. I am half korean and very proud of korean foods but my mother isn’t around to teach me how to cook them. Lucky I’ve lived there and I remember what the food is supposed to taste like and I can try to recapture those dishes. You should put a dukbokki recipe. Or mandu guk. I’ll keep checking in! Thanks for the tasty recipes.~

    Just want to say thank you for these recipes. I am South African and live in NZ. My daughter’s friend from Korea lives with us and I want to treat her to Korean food now and then. Poor her, she is on a South African diet at the moment. This is all new to me but a nice challenge.

    this recipe looks simple and delicious! i may try one day but it is hard to find korean pancake powder here in my country. can we substitute it with any other powder? like the regular one.. maybe wheat flour or something. i am not a good cook but i want to learn. thanks!

      You can use flour and an egg. It may not be as crispy as using the pancake powder, but it is a good replacement 🙂

    ahh so just mix the egg with the flour? thanks for your guidance! as long it can replace it so it’s fine for me though it may not be as crispy as it should be~ 🙂

    Would pls. let me know your measurement for pancake flour and water. What does LB mean? Can you convert it into measuring cup? Does it mean pound?

    Hi Anna,

    Yes it is pound. Can you try 2 cups of the powder and 3 cups of water? I used to use the word ‘enough’, thick enough, sweet enough, brown enough. I am trying to use measuring cups and spoons more these days. I promise I will be better with measurements 🙂
