Bag of Trader Joe's Scallion Pancakes (Pa Jeon)
Trader Joe's Scallion Pancakes (Pa Jeon)

My mom used to cook Korean pancakes when I was younger, so I was excited to try these Pa Jeon pancakes from Trader Joe's.

The oven instructions stated to cook the pancakes for 4-7 minutes at 400F, turn half-way through, and press with a spatula. When we cooked some for the first time, we cooked them for 7 minutes. We weren't sure about the press with a spatula part, but we sort of pressed them down after turning them.

I haven't had Korean pancakes in a long time so I can't really compare them with real Korean pancakes, but they turned out to be pretty good. We didn't eat them with any sauce, and they just tasted like a savory pancake slightly textured by the cooked scallions and carrots. They had the right amount of doughy-ness and crispiness on the outside. The pancakes were also very filling so I was only able to eat one.
