1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup water or dashi(broth)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp white pepper
Whisk together ingredients to make the batter.
1 1/2 cup cabbage - shredded
1 carrot - shredded
2 scallions - chopped
1 tsp ginger (grated) or 1 T pickled ginger
1/2 cup shrimp - small or chopped (I had frozen so I used that)
3/4 cup crab sticks - chopped
I didn't measure, I just dumped what looked like a good amount in the bowl.
Combine the filling and batter and lightly mix, not working it too much.
On a lightly oiled griddle over medium heat pour batter to about 1" thick. Cook about 5 minutes or until the edges crisp up a little. Now most recipes will call for a few slices of bacon to lay on top before you flip it, but I didn't have any on hand to do that...maybe next time. It looked nice and round...until I flipped it.
Gently flip it...probably best to use two flippers if you can. Cook the other side until center is stable and it becomes a nice golden brown on both sides. I slid it onto a plate like I would an omelet.
tonkatsu sauce: which you can buy ready made in an Asian market or make your own...usually made with ketchup, worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, and sometimes onion juice, and mustard (that's the one I used) some will add sugar or corn starch to thicken it.( Or you could use oyster sauce, or worcestershire sauce)
Japanese mayonnaise: Kewpie mayo - I didn't try this because it was described as a little sweet, and I didn't want to pay the $5.99 for it until I knew what it tasted like. So Hellman's it was!
green nori flakes: or seaweed, I used a little furikake, my nori was it sheets used for sushi.
You can top with scallions, caramelized shallots or onions...or ...I don't know go crazy! What would you come up with to fill it or top it with?
The bacon would of been good on it if it crisped up when you lay it on top and flip it. I think the texture was a little heavy, or different than I am used to, but tasty. I think next time I will make small ones, and it would be neater looking and easier to flip when cooking.
...it was very filling...I tried to make it look pretty, but I didn't have any squeesy things to squeeze the sauce and mayo on with.
...again, good for a snack or meal, lunch or brunch!
...or next time I'll try this mix for Korean seafood pancake! The veggies look good in there!

My first time having "okonomiyaki" was at Little Tokyo in LA @ Nijiya Market during the Tofu festival, I LOVED IT, I've tried to make it at home but never make it as good as they did sadly.ReplyDelete
oh this looks so good :-) love your Asian dishes Happy Mothers day hugs RebeccaReplyDelete
It looks great! My partner loves okonomiyaki and we've used his mum's recipe to make them, but it's been so long since the last time! I think it's time to dish some up again :-)ReplyDelete
This looks amazing! I just want to dig in. I've only had this at restaurants, I should try this at home someday!ReplyDelete

Lyndsey...I've never heard of this one...so you taught me something new today...Very interesting recipe...I love Kewpie mayo...you should try it.ReplyDelete
fun! i love okonomiyaki..it can smell a tad fishy at first but once i got used to it, the pancake itself is quite delicious!!ReplyDelete
I have made many seafood type fritters but never a pancake, or one with a batter like this,,, interesting Lyndsey, will have to try it but I think I will add spices inside and not us so much condimentsReplyDelete
What a fantastic thing to make. It looks great!ReplyDelete
I never had this before - it looks incredibly good! Would love to try it!ReplyDelete
Megan - that's what I liked about it ... it was a little different. I do love Japanese food!ReplyDelete
Sarah - hope you do and make it your way!
Comfy - curious to see what you come up with!
Bo - Good to know it might be worth trying kewpie mayo, is it sweet like Miricle Whip?
LittleAsianGirl BigAppetite - yes...a little fishy with the bonito flakes, you can always leave them off!
Drick - I was so tempted to put add some seasoning inside with the filling too. I think I will try it that way next time...and with cheese :D
Pru - thanks
Reeni - thank you.
I never tried them either but looks really fun adding any topping we like and so yum!ReplyDelete
I have not had okonomiyaki for a while and you are making me crave it now. Yours look very good for a first attempt. It is nice that you added the bonito flakes.ReplyDelete
I'm not familiar with this dish, but if it has shrimp and crab, it has to be delicious.ReplyDelete
Another Japanese recipe to add to my to-do! It does look full but stuffed with a lot of things I love! Well doneReplyDelete
This looks wonderful! I love Japanese food, but I didn't know this dish....fantastic!ReplyDelete
