Scallion Pancakes

  • 12 dumpling / wonton wrappers
  • 2 scallions, finely sliced
  • grape seed oil (or any neutral oil such as vegetable oil or canola oil)
  • salt, to taste

Dipping sauce


  1. Prepare work station: Remove dumpling wrappers from the package and cover with a damp kitchen cloth to prevent them from drying out. Rinse, dry and thinly slice the scallions. Prepare a small bowl of water, oil with a pastry brush and small dish of salt. 
  2. Make the pancakes: Take one dumpling wrapper and wet the edge of the left side with your fingers. Layer on another dumpling wrapper, gently press down and repeat once more. This will seal the wrappers and prevent them from falling apart. Brush some oil onto the dumpling wrappers, sprinkle with salt and sprinkle on the scallions. 
  3. Roll the pancakes: Roll the wrapper from the bottom up (much like a cinnamon roll). Do not roll too tightly or it will be more difficult to flatten later. Pinch the two ends together to prevent scallions from falling out. It should now look like a mini cinnamon roll. Place it seam side up and roll into a spiral. Wet the end with some water (if its dry) and gently press it in to prevent it from unrolling. 
  4. Flatten: Use the palm of your hands and flatten the pancake. If you want a thinner pancake, roll it out with a rolling pin. Do not roll out too much or the scallions may come out. 
  5. To make mini bite sized scallion pancakes: Instead of layering 3 dumpling wrappers, follow the same process but using only one dumpling wrapper. 
  6. Cook: Over medium heat, add 1-2 tbsp of oil to a non-stick pan. Add the scallion pancakes and cook each side until golden brown and crisp (about 3 minutes for the first side and 2 minutes on the other side). 
  7. Add all the dipping sauce ingredients into a bowl. Serve with the pancakes and enjoy!
