White Fish Jeon

흰살 생선전, HuinSal SaengSeonJeon


These Korean style white fish cakes are really delicious. They make a perfect dish with a good white fish flavor along with extra vegetables and a little bit of flour. :D You can prepare the fish mixture ahead and fry it just before serving. That way, it can be a good party food as an appetizer or side dish. ;)

Yield: 16 Fish Cakes

Main Ingredients

  • 12 oz Haddock or other White Fish
  • ¼ Cup Carrot
  • ⅓ Cup Onion
  • 3 Garlic Cloves
  • 1½ Tbsp Green Onion
  • 1 tsp Hot Pepper
  • 1 Egg
  • ½ Cup Flour
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ⅛ tsp White Pepper Powder
  • Some Oil for Frying

Directions

 

Cut 12 oz of haddock or other white fish into 1-inch pieces.

 

Prepare ¼ cup of carrot, ⅓ cup of onion, and 3 cloves of garlic. Cut them into 1-inch pieces.

 

Grind the fish for few seconds (about 5 seconds), until the fish becomes small pieces.

 

Add the onion, carrot, garlic, and about 3 Tbsp of water to the fish. Grind them for a minute or until they become like paste.

 

Finely chop the green onion (1½ Tbsp) and hot pepper (1 tsp).

 

In a mixing bowl, combine the fish mixture, green onion, hot pepper, 1 egg, ½ cup of flour, ½ tsp of salt, and ⅛ tsp of white pepper powder.

 

You will get a thick consistency like potato salad.

 

Spread a spoonful of the fish mixture into a heated and oiled pan.

 

Fry them on medium-high until both sides of the fish cakes become golden brown.

 

So far, I tried these fish cakes with different kinds of white fish such as haddock, halibut, and whiting fillet. I liked most of them, but halibut and haddock was the best. It’s very delicious. Try them someday. :D
