Korean Crab Jeon (Crab Stick Omelettes) Recipe: Season 4, Ep. 8

This is almost a non-recipe that I learned from my mom when we were visiting the east coast over the holidays. She didnt mean to teach me a new recipe, but after my first bite, I was inspired! This is perfect party food that you can easily whip up on the fly, and I knew I had to share it with all of you!

Ingredients

Imitation crab sticks 1 Pound
Onion 1 (very thinly sliced)
Garlic cloves 2 , mince
Jalapeno 1 , finely chopped
Scallions 3 , finely chopped
Eggs 7
Salt To Taste
Black pepper To Taste
Vegetable oil 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)

Directions

Making

Shred the imitation crab sticks into strings like you're pulling apart string cheese. Place in a large bowl.

Mix in the onion, garlic, jalapeno, and scallions. Using kitchen gloves, add the eggs and mix with your hands. You want the mixture to bind together, without being runny. Season the mixture with salt and pepper to taste.

Heat a large pan with oil over medium low heat. You don’t want the pan to be too hot or the omelettes will burn. With a spoon, pick up chunks of the crab mixture, and place them onto the pan. Shape into round shapes using your spoon. Pan fry them until both sides becomes golden brown about 2-3 minutes on each side. Repeat until you are finished with the whole batch.

TIP: If you are serving them later, you can keep them warm in a 200 degree oven, or serve at room temperature. They’re best eaten hot off the pan though!
