Once upon a time, all of our food had a pretty distinct Mexican appearance.  If it wasn't completely Mexican in flavor, it was some sort of Fusion food rolled into a tortilla.  We still love that kind of food so much and enjoy it regularly.  However, somewhere along the way, we began to try other cuisines.  Now, our love is being spread throughout the world as we try one new recipe after another. 

Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, Indian, Caribbean...the spicier the better we say.  I'm quite sure it all started when I started reading all of your wonderful blogs.  At that point, a whole new world was opened up for me. 

When I saw the recipe for Korean Pancakes recently on Dinner: A Love Story,  I knew it was destined to make it to our table.  I had shrimp in the freezer and had harvested some zucchini from the garden so the timing was perfect.

I know that those of you who have been reading my blog for awhile will be shocked; but, I made the pancakes and the dipping sauce exactly as it was written.  

I know...I know. 
It was totally out of character for me.
I just didn't have any ideas on how to change it.  

The pancakes were absolutely delicious particularly with the dipping sauce and a dash of Sriracha on top.  Having said that, I think the next time that I make them...and there WILL be a next time....that I will add something spicy to the pancakes themselves.  We enjoy our food more on the spicy side so unless we serve these to guests,  I think that I will add some Sriracha, minced garlic (because I add that to everything) and more salt (bad habit) to the mixture before I cook the pancakes.  

I think these would make fantastic "Asian Tortillas".  I can see these wrapped around some "Asian glazed" grilled chicken and stir fried veggies.  

If you enjoy Asian flavors and are looking for a wonderful way to use some of that zucchini from the garden, this is your dish for you.  Hop on over to Dinner: A Love Story to get this recipe and look around at all of the many other yummy goodies featured there.  You will be glad you did!
