Happy New Year!

We’re having a small intimate new year in the ZenKimchi household.  Here’s a little party food that uses strange ingredients but surprisingly tastes good together, especially hot and fresh.  This is one of many types of jeon 전 (pronounced “john”).  Most people are familiar with pajeon, the green onion pancake.  This is a skewered version.  In this case, it was made with a few leftovers, but you can get the spirit of it.


Spam, cut into 1/2-inch sticks
Imitation Crab Legs
2 Eggs, beaten

1. Make sure the Spam, crab and leek slices are around the same size.  Not precisely but close enough.  Then skewer them on toothpicks, one piece of each per toothpick with the leek in the middle.

2. Dust the skewers in flour and dip them in beaten egg.

3. Fry them in a 1/4-inch of canola oil until the egg starts to set and turn brownish.

4. Serve immediately.

And that’s it.
