This is what Amy says about this snack,

Hotteok (pronounced ho-duck) is a traditional Korean snack – a chewy dough pastry with a sweet filling typically comprised of brown sugar or honey and nuts. Because it is best enjoyed hot off the griddle, it’s a popular snack during the winter. I’m putting a savory spin on hotteok by making a strawberry and goat cheese filling. Enjoy!

How can you resist strawberries and goat cheese? Give hotteok a try!


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sweet rice flour
  • 2 tablespoons white granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cup warm water (115-120 degrees is ideal)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • More oil for frying
  • 6 ounces Florida Strawberries, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar reduction (pre-made is so convenient)
  • 6 ounces goat cheese log, cut into 8 discs


In a large mixing bowl, combine the flours, sugar, salt. Stir together the yeast and warm water and add into the large mixing bowl. With a rubber spatula, mix until a dough forms.

Loosely cover the dough with plastic wrap and let it rise at room temperature for about 1 hour.

In a small bowl, mix together the strawberries and balsamic vinegar. Set aside.

Roll the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into 8 equal parts.Take one portion and gently flatten it to about a 4-inch diameter circle. Place one disc of goat cheese in the center and add 2 tablespoons of the strawberry mixture. Pull the edges of the dough to the center and pinch to secure. Make sure there are no holes. Repeat for the remaining portions.

Heat a few tablespoons of oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. Please the the stuffed dough into the skillet. With a sturdy spatula, gently press down on the dough until it is roughly 4 inches in diameter. Let cook for about 3 minutes or until a light golden brown. Carefully flip over and let cook for another 3 minutes until golden brown. Gently flatten as it cooks and add oil if needed. Repeat until all are cooked.

Serve hot!
