Oisii Daikon Season has arrived! I miss my mom’s cooking. So, I tried to make it myself for the first time. Please adjust the amount of seasoning for your preferences.

Ingredients

  1. 2 whole Squids
  2. 1 whole Daikon
  3. 1 whole Yaki-Tofu (optional)
  4. Seasonings
  5. 4 cups Water
  6. 4-5 Tablespoons Soy sauce
  7. 4-5 Tablespoons Mirin
  8. 1 teaspoon Ginger
  9. 1 half cup of Brown Sugar
  10. 3 Tablespoons Shirodashi

Steps

  1. Main Ingredients

  2. Clean Squids

  3. Squid Body

  4. Squid Legs – Separate Legs and 🧠👻. Cut under Eye Balls(Red Line). Don’t cut legs short but in vertical because it will shrink a lot. Looks better when you serve.

  5. Prepare Daikon – Peel and cut into 10-12 mm slices and boil and drain water. (I used regular water from faucet but They say that you can use white water from washing rice (Talk water) when you boil Daikon🤓)

  6. Make Soup – Add all seasonings and water in the pot and boil.

  7. When #6 is boiled, add Squids, Daikon, Yaki-Tofu. Before it starts boiling again, turn down to medium temperature and simmer for 12-15min. Try to submerge main ingredients under the soup so Daikon absorb the soup. (I used Aluminum foil as a lid in the pod. So excess water will be evaporated.)

  8. Dekiagari (done)- After it finished cooking, cool it down in the room temperature makes tastier I heard.
