Pajeon (Korean Style Piccata) with Scallion and Sakura Shrimp step by step
- Mix the 〇 ingredients and prepare the vinegar soy sauce. It turns out more authentic Korean using roasted and chopped pine nuts instead of ground sesame seeds..
- Cut the thinly and vertically sliced red bell peppers in halves. You may substitute the bell peppers with julienned carrots or dried chili pepper strands..
- Cut off the root ends of the scallions (or green onions), wash, lightly drain and cut into half lengths. I used green onions this time..
- Cut the length of the scallions from Step 3 in half, and arrange the directions with an equal balance of the white and green parts on both ends..
- Slit a plastic bag down the center and place the scallions from Step 4 on top. This is the way to use a plastic bag instead of a tray, to minimize clean-up..
- Sprinkle the ★ flour over the scallions from Step 5 and coat them evenly..
- Whisk the ☆ egg in a bowl. Add the ☆ shio koji and the ☆ white pepper (or black pepper). Mix well..
- Pour 1/3 of the egg mixture from Step 7 over the scallions from Step 6. Flip the scallions using the plastic bag so that the egg mixture will evenly coat the scallions..
- In a large pan, heat the sesame oil, place the egg-coated scallions in the pan and reduce the heat to low..
- Shape by spreading out the scallions. I made it into a 14 cm wide piccata. My pan size is 28 cm diameter (slightly on the large side)..
- Once the piccata is shaped, sprinkle the sakura shrimp on top and press down on them. Pour in the remaining half of the egg mixture from Step 7..
- Arrange the bell peppers from Step 2 on top. Make sure the heat is low enough not to burn the piccata..
- Pour the rest of the egg mixture over the piccata from Step 12. Cook slowly over low heat..
- Once it is browned, flip and pat lightly. Cook again slowly..
- Now, it's ready to serve..
- Trim the ends and cut into 8 pieces on a cutting board. Serve on a plate with the vinegar soy sauce from Step 1 on the side..
- If the white part of the scallions are thick, cut them vertically so they can cook through well..
- I used a home-made shio koji from 200 g of dried rice malt, 70 g of salt and 330 ml of water..
