RECIPE: TKG's Pajeon

Watching tons of kdramas can really make you crave and enjoy Korean dishes and my home is not an exemption. And I love replicating dishes so here's my version of pajeon. By the way, pajeon is akin to Japanese okonomiyaki. Checking online, "pa" refers to spring onions, while "jeon" is pancake (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pajeon). This is so very easy to make and great as snack.


Ingredients:

4 medium size eggs
2 stalks leeks, sliced into inches
4 tbsp kimchi (or as desired), cut into small pieces
3 tbsp Maya all-purpose flour
1 tsp black sesame
1 tbsp Dona Elena olive oil
6 pcs large shrimps, cut into small pieces
a pinch of salt

*** I used store-bought kimchi



In a bowl, beat egg and gradually add the flour. Add about 1/3 of the leeks, and everything except for the oil. Make sure to mix well. Coat non-stick pan with oil until it heats up then add the pajeon batter. Cover the pan and wait for it to cook. Add the remaining leeks if the pajeon is almost done. Serving is good for 2-3.

    1. Got my stash of kimchi from the Korean grocery in Greenhills. A small small round container costs P50-60. But if you can consume tons of kimchi at home, its cheaper to buy it per kilo. That's around P400. I did try making kimchi but I'm not yet confident with my recipe though ...

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
