Lazy Yakitori

(The picture is from my first try so it not seared enough and doesn’t have any fresh green onions).

It is a nice and quick — if you have already the Yakitori sauce — that goes as well with rice as by itself.

It is the best with chicken thighs, but chicken breast or even legs work as well. If you can, cook the chicken with the skin for more flavor and texture ;).


Ingredients:


  1. Separate the green onions into white and green parts.
  2. Cut the white part into 2cm pieces,
  3. Slice thinly the green part and keep it for later.
  4. Cut the chicken in pieces of about 2*1*1 cm.
  5. Preheat a pan with a little bit of oil on high heat.
  6. Sear the chicken, it’s fine if it slightly get burned.
  7. When the chicken is half “seared” add the green onions and keep the heat high.
  8. When the chicken is seared, reduce the heat to medium-high and add the sauce and half of the green onions. Stir fry to get all the caramelized/burned part but avoid overcooking the sauce.
  9. Dish it up, and add the rest of the green onions.

Enjoy 😉

Yakitori sauce

This sauce is wonderful. I now always have a bottle of home made yakitori sauce in my fridge to add it whenever it’s needed.

I will write a “Lazy Yakitori” recipe that use it. 😉

It is extremely easy to do but takes a little bit of time.


Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of soy sauce
  • 1 cup of mirin
  • 1/2 cup of sake
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 4 tablespoons of sugar *
  • 2 green onions (only the green part)

* Concerning the sugar, I like this sauce on the sweet side, but obviously adjust it to your taste. 😉


  1. Put all the ingredients in a pot and bring it to a boil on high heat.
  2. When it starts to boil, reduce the heat until having a gentle simmer.
  3. Let it simmer uncovered for 30-45 minutes or until it reduce by half.
  4. When it is reduced enough remove from heat, remove the green onions and let it cool down.

I generally pour it in an empty soy sauce bottle when it’s cool.

Enjoy! 😉

Jalapeñonnaiser

jalapenonnaiser

I wanted to do something slightly different from the classic burger and I noticed that we had some Jalapeño and a little bit of Okonomyiaki sauce so created a new awesome burger.

You can also use a veggie patty instead of meat.


Ingredients for one burger

  • Burger buns
  • 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise
  • 1/8 of a Jalapeño (depending how hot you want it)
  • 1 gherkin
  • 5 cm piece of green onion
  • 150 gr of beef mince ( or beef/pork mix)
  • 1 tablespoon of Okonomyiaki sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of barbecue sauce
  • 1 lettuce leaf
  • 1 cherry tomato
  • 1/4 of a red onion
  • 1 cheddar slice

  1. Dice thinly the Jalapeño, gherkin and green onion.
  2. Mix all of it with mayonnaise. That makes your “Jalapenõnnaise”.
  3. Mix the barbecue and Okonomyiaki sauce together.
  4. Slice the onion and tomato.
  5. Form your patty, put some salt and pepper on it.
  6. Toast the buns.
  7. Cook it on high heat on both side until it gets golden brown.
  8. Put the barbecue/okonomyiaki sauce on it and caramelize it.
  9. Finally add the cheddar and cover it so it melts.
  10. Build the burger (bottom to top):
    1. Bottom bun.
    2. Lettuce.
    3. Jalapenõnnaise.
    4. Onion slices.
    5. Tomato slices.
    6. Patty.
    7. Top bun.

Bon appétit!
