Okonomiyaki from food52.com

1/2 cup mayonnaise
tablespoons soy sauce
teaspoons sriracha, more or less to taste
large eggs
teaspoon soy sauce
teaspoon sesame oil

  • teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • cups cabbage, shredded with a mandoline or finely chopped
  • bunch scallions, trimmed and chopped
  • 3/4 cup (roughly) baby or chopped shrimp
  • Canola oil for frying
  • 1-2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  • Bonito flakes (optional)
  1. Whisk the first set of ingredients together and voila, your sauce. Set aside while you make the pancakes.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs with the soy sauce, sesame oil, and salt. Gradually add the flour until incorporated. Fold in cabbage, scallions, and shrimp.
  3. Warm a couple glugs of canola oil in a skillet over medium-high heat until glistening. Ladle the batter into the skillet as you would for regular old pancakes. I usually make them about the size of saucer. Cook on each side for about 3 minutes or until golden brown. Keep pancakes covered in a warm oven as you make the rest. Scatter sesame seeds and/or bonito flakes on top of pancakes and serve with dipping sauce and a cold pilsner.
