Pancakes

  • 1 cup (250 mL) flour
  • Zest of one lime
  • 1 cup (250 mL) water, iced
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) soy sauce
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) Sriracha sauce
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 8 scallions
  • 1 cup (250 mL) corn, grilled and shucked
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) canola or peanut oil for frying

Topping

  • 1 1/2 cup (375 mL) seasonal vegetables, thinly sliced (asparagus, corn, cucumber, radish, swiss chard, sweet pea)
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) roasted sesame seeds
  • 1 cup (250 mL) kimchi (store bought or homemade)
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) pickled shallots, sliced

Instructions

  1. Cut the scallion in 4 lengthwise, then into one-inch pieces; set aside.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and lime zest. Add to this the ice cold water, soy sauce, sriracha sauce and beaten eggs, mix well. Add the scallion, corn and a generous pinch of salt, mix well. 

  3. Add oil to a pan on high heat. Drop tablespoonful of the mixture into the hot oil. Each pancake should be about 1” (2.5 cm) in diameter. Cook until golden and crispy, about 1 to 2 minutes per side. With an offset spatula, set aside on absorbent paper and keep in a warm place until ready to serve. You may also reheat the pancakes once fried. 

  4. For the topping, mix all ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Set aside until ready to serve.

  5. For serving, top the pancakes with the seasonal vegetables and kimchi mixture.
