    Thanks for researching that, also the sauce can be found at your local Asian market if you have one.

    You got my taste buds going so I researched where you can get the sauce...if you don't want to make it from scratch. I can't get it locally but it is on Amazon. Apparently the flakes are bonito flakes and I totally forgot about using Kewpie Mayo on top. Also was at Camp Zama 98-01 ;o) Got to make this. I hope people will give it a chance!

    Great recipe, thanks. May not be appreciated by those unfamiliar with Japanese food, but for a "Gaijin" or the more adventurous out there, this one should be tried. (Camp Zama 1960-63)

    I haven't had this since I lived in Japan (2001)! I had Japanese students that came to my home to make it for me. It was so delicious and I never forgot it! The sauce is yummy! They added these dried flakes of shrimp that they called "dancing fish" because when you sprinkled them on the "pancake" they would move about...I guess because of the heat. Thank you for posting this!
