Battered fish is a popular Korean snack. Known as “saengsun jun” in the local language, this Korean delicacy features fried fish in an egg and flour batter. Pan-frying is similar to deep frying but in this recipe the fish is pan-fried, which means the oil should come halfway up the fish rather than immerse it completely. A heavy cast iron pan is the best thing to pan-fry your fish in but do bear in mind that these pans become seasoned over time to whatever you cook in them.

If you always use the same cast iron pan to fry rice, pasta, or potatoes, the starch buildup will season the pan over time, making it nonstick to starchy foods. If you use fats and oils to cook fish or meat, the pan will become nonstick to grease. If you combine the two – starches and oils – then nearly everything will stick to the pan which is not what you want. A heavy cast iron pan will absorb and hold on to the heat, to help maintain the oil at a steady temperature.

Serve the fish as it is or make a tasty dipping sauce for it. if you want to make a typical Korean dipping sauce, stir together 1/3 cup of soy sauce, a teaspoon each of sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, and seaweed flakes, half a teaspoon of sesame seeds and some sliced green onion and red pepper flakes. Use Korean soy sauce or another Asian variety if you can; a lot of the American ones are too salty. Alternatively you can serve chili sauce, mayonnaise or tartar sauce with the fish. Serve some rice or fries as a side dish, and maybe some green salad or your favorite veggies.

Photo Description:

This fish is presented very artistically in the picture and if you want to recreate this you will need to arrange halved cucumber slices around the outside of a serving platter and add finely minced red bell pepper and some fresh lemon slices and parsley sprigs. Although you can see a whole pan-fried flounder in this photo, you can either use a whole fish or filets. Flounder comes in different sizes and the larger ones are better cut into filets.
