So you have some left over fish in the fridge, some tako in the freezer, and a bunch of other frozen bits that you swore you would eat some day. Okonomiyaki is a simple way to put it all together and a simple meal! So simple even I can make it!
Flour (Or Okonomiyaki Mix)
Tako + Fish + Scallops + Shrimp + Squid + Pretty Much Anything You Like!
(A cup of flour makes two pretty large pancakes, but you'd be amazed how much you can eat)
Mix egg + flour + water together in large bowl. The consistency should be like a pancake (it pretty much is a savory pancake). After it's well mixed, throw in the cabbage (shredded) as well as whatever seafood or meat you want in your okonomiyaki.
If you have one of those griddles you can heat it to around 400f, if not, use a (cast iron) skillet, remember to put oil.
Pour the batter onto the skillet in a patty shape. Cook until golden brown (~5 min.). Flip it. Cook until golden brown.
Put the okonomiyaki on a plate, drizzle with katsu sauce + sweet mayo (if you have). Add bonito shavings + nori. Pickled ginger (red kine) on side.
Eat about 2 - 3. Get the itis. Sleep.
I thought I took pictures of last time I made it, but can't find em. I'll remember next time!
