Pajeon are savory Korean pancakes loaded with squash and fried so it is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. —Miss Hangrypants

What You'll Need
  • 2 medium Mexican Squash
  • 2 large jalapeño
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 tablespoons dried shrimp powder
  1. Julienne baby Mexican squash into matchsticks and finely chop jalapeños
  2. If you can't find dried shrimp powder, you can usually find them dried and whole that you can pulverize yourself. Otherwise substitute with 1 tbsp light soy sauce.
  3. Preheat frying pan with 1 tbsp vegetable oil to medium high heat. Ladle batter and spread to make a thin (2-3 layers of squash) pancake to cover the bottom. Fry for 5 minutes or until nicely golden on each side.
