Cut the squid into bite size pieces and sprinkle salt and pepper. Put in a plastic bag and coat with katakuriko.
Heat sesame oil in a frying pan. Add the squid and fry until crispy. When it is cooked through, add eggs and green onions. Stir gently. It tastes better if the egg is a little runny.
Transfer to a serving plate and squirt Okonomiyaki sauce and mayonnaise in a crisscross pattern. That's all there is to it.
Story Behind this Recipe
This was my ex's specialty back when we were living together. lol. It was so good I decided to recreate it and I still eat it all the time. I didn't know what it was called so I went with "Tonpei Yaki."
For salt and pepper, add a little more than you think you need. I recommend using frozen squid legs because they are plump and filling, but you could easily use a whole squid instead. Fry in the sesame oil until crispy.
