Okonomiyaki with Prawns Close-UP

I fried Okonomiyaki again, but with prawns instead of pork I usually add.

As the prawns I used got hard very quickly, the texture of the prawns were as if I was eating something like an old rubber.

Well, for Okonomiyaki, I have to select better quality prawns as prawns have to be cooked with the Okonomiyaki mixture for at least 5 minutes and more.

If such low quality prawns are only cooked for a minute or so, the prawns stay just as soft as I expect.

Anyway, overall taste of the Okonomiyaki today except for the prawns are fine, I could try with other meat or similar recipes which is popular in Japan some time when I have all ingredients.

Turn over it and after frying on medium heat for 1 minute or so, reduce to low heat and put a lid. Heat for 5 to 7 minutes, depending on the size and thickness of the mixture.

Put on a plate once the inside is also cooked well, then spread Okonomiyaki brown sauce, Japanese mayonnaise, sprinkle Katsuobushi and Aonori.

My preference is to include a lot of Sakuraebi baby shrimp, however, the high seasons of Sakuraebi are spring and autumn.

Other ingredients instead of pork, Sakuraebi are squid, prawns, pickled ginger and more as you like.
