  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 4 flour tortillas (8-inch)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped scallions
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 4 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • Soy Dipping Sauce for Scallion Pancakes


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together egg white and sesame oil; brush over one side of each flour tortillas.

  2. In a small bowl, mix together scallions and cilantro. Divide mixture between 2 tortillas; spread in an even layer, leaving a 1-inch border. Top with the remaining 2 tortillas (brushed side down), and press edges to seal, forming 2 pancakes.

  3. In a medium nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons vegetable oil over medium heat. Add 1 pancake; cook until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining 2 teaspoons oil and remaining pancake. Cut each pancake into six wedges, and serve with Soy Dipping Sauce.
