Saengseon Jeon
Pan Fried Cod Recipe

Saengseon Jeon translates in Korean as pan fried fish and is a very common side dish throughout Korea. I have used Cod today but you can use pretty much any white fish that you can get.

Jeon is used to describe a range of dishes that have been fried in a pan coated with eggs and flour. This can be most meats, fish or vegetables and are normally served as side dishes, you can use this recipe and modify it for other ingredients. I often make Jeon's with sliced courgette (zucchini) and mushrooms as a side dish.

Pan Fried Cod recipesTo make this pan fried cod I have used the following ingredients:

250g of Cod Fillet
100g flour
2 eggs
Salt and Pepper

This dish is pretty quick to make, begin by cracking 2 eggs in to a bowl then whisk quickly with a fork. Take the cod and slice it in to pieces, size wise a bit bigger than chicken nuggets but it doesn't matter to much, season with a pinch of salt and pepper and leave for about 10 to 20 minutes.

Cod Frying

Put some oil in a pan (about 2 tablespoons), and make sure its hot. Coat the pieces of fish first in flour then the egg, put straight in the pan and fry, repeat with all the pieces of fish and any vegetables that you want to make with it.

Fry both sides of the fish until crispy brown, this takes about 2 minutes on each side. Saengseon Jeon is best enjoyed straight away and you can dip in a bit of soy sauce if you like...Delicious!
