RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS

Soy Sauce Dipping Sauce 간장양념장

Combine the following ingredients, mix well, and let it sit aside while you prepare the rest of the ingredients. Alternatively, you can make this ahead of time and store in the fridge. In the fridge, this dipping sauce can last a while. I would finish eating the sauce within 2 weeks.

  • 1 Tablespoon 큰술 Minced Scallion 다진 쪽파

  • 2 Tablespoons 큰술 Soy Sauce (all-purpose) 양조간장

  • 1 Teaspoon 작은술 Vinegar 현미식초

  • 1/2 Teaspoon 작은술 Sesame Seeds 참깨

  • 1/2 Teaspoon 작은술 GoChuGaRu 고춧가루

  • 1 Garlic Clove 마늘 (finely grated using a microplane or finely minced)


Fresh fish fillet shopping tip: Always smell the fish before buying it. If it smells fishy, go to another store. Use the fresh fish right away once you bring it home.

Frozen fish fillet: Thaw out the frozen fish in the fridge. Once the fish is completely thawed, use the fish within 24 hours.

For both fresh and thawed fish, if you let it sit in the fridge for days, it will start to spoil and smell fishy.

If you can't get cod or pollock fish fillet, you can use any white fish of your choice.

  • 360 Grams Cod Fillet 대구 (or Pollock 명태)

Fish Prep

(As shown at 02:27 Fish Prep 생선 준비)

Place the fish fillet on a paper towel, and another sheet of paper towel on top of the fillet. Then gently press to absorb any excess liquid. Remember, it is good to have some moisture on the fish fillet so it absorbs the flour dusting.


Slice the fish fillet at an angle, using a sharp knife. You want to slice the fish fillet so it is thick enough to hold its shape (about 1/4" thick).

Lightly sprinkle the fish fillet slices with salt, garlic powder, and black pepper. (Seasoning on one side only is fine.) You want to just lightly season the fish since the pan-fried fish patties will be eaten with the soy sauce dipping sauce.

  • 2 Pinches 꼬집 Garlic Powder 마늘가루

  • 2 Pinches 꼬집 Salt 소금

  • 1 Pinch 꼬집 Black Pepper 후추

On a tray or a large plate, mix the Korean Pancake and Tempura Mix powders.

  • 1/2 Cup 컵 Pancake Mix 부침가루

  • 1/2 Cup 컵 Tempura Mix 튀김가루

Lightly coat the fish slices, on both sides, with the powder.


In a mixing bowl, whip up the eggs, then add the dusted fish slices to the egg liquid. The fish slices should only sit in the egg liquid for no more than 2 minutes.

  • 2 Eggs 달걀

  • 1 Egg Yolk Only 달걀 계란 노른자만 (this is to make the fish patty more yellow)

Pan Frying

(As shown at 05:50 Pan Frying 맛있게 굽는 방법

Quickly preheat your non-stick frying pan on HIGH heat for about 1 to 2 minutes. Then lower the stove heat to MEDIUM. Add a generous amount of cooking oil.

  • 2 Tablespoons 큰술 Extra Virgin Olive Oil 식용유 (or your choice of favorite oil)

Swirl the pan around to evenly distribute the oil on the frying pan. Then place each fish slice coated in egg to the frying pan. Make sure there is some space in between each fish slice in the pan. Then quickly add the garnishes on the fish slices, but you can skip the garnishes. If you add any of the garnishes below, add a small amount of the egg liquid on the garnish so it acts as the glue when we turn over the fish to cook on the other side.


Optional Garnishes

  • Red Pepper Slices 홍고추 (1 slice per fish slice)

  • Italian Parsley Leaves 이탈리안 파슬리 잎 (1 leaf per fish slice)

  • Dried Chilli Threads 실고추 (2 to 3 threads per fish slice)

Let the fish slices slowly pan fry on MEDIUM heat for 2 to 3 minutes OR until light golden brown. Then turnover the fish slices and lower the heat to MEDIUM-LOW. Pan fry for 2 to 3 minutes or until light golden brown.

Quickly place the pan fried fish patties to a paper towel (place the cooling rack under the paper towel). Let the fish patties cool down for 2 to 3 minutes. The cooling process keep the fish moist as it cools and retracts the heat within, and the paper towel will absorb the excess oil from the patties.


These pan fried fish patties are enjoyed warm or at room temperature. These pan fried fish patties also make an excellent side snack (called SulAhnJu 술안주) with Makgeoli 막걸리 (unfiltered rice wine), Soju (please no flavored soju!) or a light refreshing cold beer!


Bon appétit😋
