I have a question about the recipe "Okonomiyaki" from Midge. since I am allergic to shrimp do you think finely chopped salmon would work?

I am sure it would, I have read comments where others used chicken, pork, just vegetables so I am certain that salmon would be wonderful. This is such a fantastic recipe I know you will enjoy.

Buy Bonito flakes (ingredient for dashi). They are more traditional for okonomiyaki. Bonito is a dried fish flake of the tuna family.

salmon would work fine mixed in with your batter. If using pork, cook it first, because it's pork. As usaba dashi says bonito is traditional, usually generously sprinkled on top. Or try my other variations: finehttp://food52.com/recipes...

just search for okonomiyaki in recipes above, and you can find variations. It's like 'pasta', how many variations do you know for pasta?

I would not finely chop the salmon as you run the risk of overcooking it.
