Korean Seafood Pancake ( Haemul Pajeon)

When I lived in Queens New York City, I used visit Korean restaurant all the time even in late hour..Mostly all the Korean restaurant in the city open 24/7..Well, I guess this it's the custom of Korean immigrant and other immigrant who come to this land of opportunity to find a better living ,better education for their children and $$$ to work long hours..Like the song I love ,sang by Bruno Mars and Travie Mcoy "Billionaire"."I wanna be a billionaire,so frickin bad.Buy all the things that I never had"..Okay ,back to my pancake post...I was motivate to make this seafood pancake after I watch many many Kdrama..In the Kdrama they keep talking about kimchi pancake but I'm not really fond of kimchi.Well,I not even fond of plain vegetable in pancake as well.I love anything make from seafood..So seafood pancake I make.These days we can get the ready mix flour from any Asian need to crack my head to make the batter,just add 1 portion flour ,1 portion water and my favourite vegetables and seafood.Viola!!
