There are many different kinds of Korean jeon depending on what kind of vegetables, seafood, or meat you use. Hobak jeon is one of them. Hobak means zucchini and jeon means pancake. Jeon may be called a “pancake” in English, but the taste will be a little different from what you expect because it is not sweet. You can eat this as a snack or side dish. Try this simple and delicious dish someday. 😀
