Florida strawberries are in peak season now which means a little bit of summer for us here in the frigid Northeast. In our household we love our strawberries straight from the carton or in green salads. They are my daughter’s favorite food so they are usually gone in a flash. I think if she had it her way, we would live next to strawberry fields. Did you know that 8 medium strawberries equal the daily requirement of vitamin C? Sounds pretty good to me!
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. I hope my friends in Florida enjoy it as much as I do!
We are rocking another Sunday Supper Live sponsored event and are coming to you from the Epicurean Hotel in Tampa, Florida with Florida Strawberry Growers Association. Dinner is hosted by Elevage Restaurant and features a menu showcasing Florida strawberries. We are also experiencing several restaurants including Ava, Cask Social Kitchen, Elevage and Edge Rooftop Bar at the Epicurean and the Harry Waugh Dessert Room at the Legendary Bern’s Steak House, which has one of the largest restaurant wine cellars in the country. South Tampa is definitely rocking the culinary scene…who knew?
- 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!
