Gul (굴) means oysters and jeon (전) is the class of fried pancake-like foods. This dish, also called gul buchim, is an easy preparation of oysters, Korean style, that showcases their naturally rich flavor.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 10 oz oysters (small to medium sized) - usually I use pre-shucked oysters
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp ginger juice
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • dash black pepper

Recipe Steps:

  • Wash oysters in salted water and strain. If oysters are too big, you can cut it in half.
  • Put dash black pepper and sprinkle ginger juice on top - dust with flour and set aside.
  • Crack eggs into a bowl and whisk. Dip in the oysters and set aside.
  • Heat a frying pan with vegetable or canola oil and fry the oysters 2-3 min on each side or until the egg batter turns lightly brown.
