Hi everyone! LONG time no see, I am not too proud to leave you guys hanging, though this is my 200th posting, and I was waiting to share something very special. Even though I’ve been cooking and testing recipes on a regular basis, but nothing seemed worthy of being the “IT” posting. In my mind since this is a big milestone, I wanted something sophisticated, something that will show I am no longer the fumbling idiot that started this blog January of 2010, make sense right? The funny thing is the recipe I am sharing today (it got lots of interests on Weeknite Meals’ Facebook page) is probably the MOST SIMPLE dish I’ve ever made in the last 2 and half years. It might not be labor intensive, but it does represent what this blog is about: Comfort food that’s simple to make on a week night, so my family and I can enjoy a tasty, healthy meal without breaking the bank.
Before sharing the recipe, I wanted to thank all of you for visiting this humble blog. When I decided to start food blogging, I had no idea what a supportive community this is, I love the warm comments my foodie friends make. It’s amazing how much I’ve learned from y’all, the pure joy I experience from watching my family enjoying their dinner is priceless, I am now able to share recipes with my Mom (who is an expert cook), discuss cooking methods, and help her out in the kitchen effortlessly when we go visit. The dorkiest thing is I find myself feeling thrilled about grocery shopping, because I know the new recipes I will be able to look up and try out, the possibilities are endless. Woo Hoo to being a cook!
OK here we go, my 200th non-sophisticated recipe, hope you all enjoy!
- 1.5 cup of Korean Pancake Mix
- 1.25 cup of cold water
- 1 small bag of frozen seafood (mine had imitation crabs, mussels, shrimps, squid rings), defrosted
- 2 stalks of green onions (sliced thinly)
- 2 T of cooking oil
- In a medium size bowl, mix the water and pancake mix together thoroughly
- Heat up a frying pan, when hot, add the cooking oil, swirl to cover the pan
- Pour the pancake mix into the hot pan, sprinkle the seafood in, then add the green onions. I used a spatula to press the seafood in since the pancake mix started to harden pretty quickly.
- Turn the fire to medium and cook for 4-5 minutes, then flip and cook another 4-5 minutes, you can cook it longer for crispier texture, but make sure don’t burn it.
- Voila, it’s done, cut the pancake into smaller servings and share with loved ones!
