Seafood Delight! Okonomiyaki with Yamaimo

The batter is made only with grated yamaimo and eggs! It will make a very fluffy and soft okonomiyaki! Add plenty of seafood to the batter!

Ingredients: For 1 okonomiyaki

Seafood, such as oysters, prawns, scallops, octopus, squid, etc.
to taste
Thinly sliced pork belly
3-4 slices
to taste
Aonori and bonito flakes
to taste
For the batter
Grated yamaimo
160 g
80 g
Red pickled ginger
1 teaspoon
Fine bonito flakes
2 teaspoons
Finely chopped green onion
3 tablespoons
Tempura crumbs
2 tablespoons
For the specially blended sauce
Tonkatsu sauce and "doro" sauce
blended at a 10 to 1 ratio
For the creamy mayonnaise
Mayonnaise, milk, and yoghurt
blended at a 10 to 1 to 1 ratio


1. Coarsely shred the cabbage. Each slice should be 5 mm wide x 5 cm long (they will be difficult to mix if too long).
2. Remove the veins from the prawns and peel the shells. Cut the octopus, scallops and squid into bite-sized pieces.
3. Rinse the oyster with salt water and drain in a colander.
4. Peel the skin of the yamaimo with a vegetable peeler, then grate.
5. Gently mix all the batter ingredients, except the tempura crumbs and pork. Add the tempura crumbs just before cooking the batter.
6. For variation, fry eggs on an electric griddle and place on top of the okonomiyaki!
7. After 4 minutes flip over the cakes. This should be done carefully, since the batter is quite delicate. Cook the other side for 4 minutes and flip over again.
8. Cook each side for another minute, then they are done. Pour on the sauce and drizzle the creamy mayonnaise on top. Sprinkle on aonori powder and fine bonito flakes, then serve!
9. I like slightly spicy hot sauce for these, so I add 'Doro' sauce for a spicy kick.
10. Mix the mayonnaise, milk, and plain yoghurt, and you will have a creamy sauce. It tastes nice. Make only enough to use up on that day.
11. For variation, fry eggs on a hot plate and place on top of the okonomiyaki!
