Oyster pancakes (Gul Jeon)

Korean Style Oyster Pancakes

Apparently, oysters taste best and have the most nutrition in the winter season (From November to early March) in Korea. I bought 2 packs of oysters (total 400 g) for the price of one the other day and we enjoyed it a lot. They are usually about 2500 won (US $2.60) for 200g pack. Oysters are often referred to as “the milk of the sea“, because they contain lots of calcium. They are also very popular as a stamina food for Korean guys.

These oyster pancakes (Gul Jeon, 굴전) are certainly a great way to enjoy both the pancakes and oysters. The savoury and slightly salty taste from the oysters is just heavenly. It’s also easy to put together. I hope you get to try this recipe some day!
