Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 3 Mixing Bowls
  • 1 Medium Pan
  • Step 1 - Make the Scallion Pancake Dough
    1

    Make the Scallion Pancake Dough

    Bring a small pot with 1½ cups of water to boil. Thoroughly rinse produce and pat dry. Place flour in a medium mixing bowl, setting aside ¼ cup for dusting. Slowly add 1 cup of hot water while stirring with a wooden spoon to form a dough, kneading with your hands once it's cool enough to handle. Dough will come together into a slightly sticky, smooth, and elastic ball - add a little more water if it feels dry. Wrap dough in plastic wrap or with a damp towel, set aside and let rest for 15 minutes.

    Make Dipping Sauce and Vinaigrette

    In a small mixing bowl, combine soy sauce, ginger, Sriracha, chopped cilantro, and sugar. Stir to dissolve sugar. In another small bowl, measure out 1 tsp. of this soy-ginger mixture and combine with 1 Tbsp. olive oil to make the vinaigrette.

    Form the Pancakes, Part 1

    Generously dust a clean surface with reserved flour. Divide rested dough in half, dust tops with more flour, and use a rolling pin, can, or wine bottle to roll each half into 8" discs. Drizzle sesame oil over each disc, and top with minced green onions. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and roll into a log, pinching the ends closed.

  • Step 5 - Form the Pancakes, Part 2

    Form the Pancakes, Part 2

    Coil the dough log, keeping the lengthwise seam turned into the center, and use a rolling pin to flatten the coil into a pancake about ¼" thick and 8-9" in diameter. Heat 1 tsp. of olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat. Cook the pancakes, one at a time, until browned on both sides - about 2-3 minutes per side. Refresh pan with another 1 tsp. of olive oil between pancakes.
