Okonomiyaki is a Japanese savoury pancake that usually contains lots of different ingredients combined in a wheat-flour based batter. The name comes from the word 'okonomi', which means "how/what you like" and 'yaki', which means "cooked".

I don't know about you, but I usually struggle to come up with anything exciting to do with tinned fish beyond sandwiches, or jacket potatoes. However, that's definitely changed thanks to this recipe, which uses wild Alaska Seafood canned salmon. Time to take your canned fish to the next level...
