  • I love this show, but question.
    Why doesn't tempura recipes add salt. I love the crispness, but I don't often order tempura stuff because it at least to me taste like there is no salt. And looking at this recipe it seems to be correct.
    So I figured that there a reason for no salt.

  • "They will not attack you." Hehehe. 🙂

    I made this today, except I used pre-frozen octopus instead of sashimi grade. Didn't turn out too bad, but I still have some learning to do when it comes to cooking them tender. Even then though, it was still pretty tasty despite being a little overcooked.

    Gin 24/10/2022 pm6:34
  • If only I could get some sashimi-grade octopus 🙁

  • I wish I could find octopus, to make this and takoyaki, like a year ago I bought a takoyaki maker to make takoyaki but I couldn't find octopus at all, so I ended up using shrimp instead, I also couldn't find aonori (sea weed), or the benishoga.

  • I'm so conflicted. On one hand, octopus looks delicious and I really want to try it. On the other, I think octopi are cute and they are extremely intelligent animals.
