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.
- 2 whole Squids
- 1 whole Daikon
- 1 whole Yaki-Tofu (optional)
- 4 cups Water
- 4-5 Tablespoons Soy sauce
- 4-5 Tablespoons Mirin
- 1 teaspoon Ginger
- 1 half cup of Brown Sugar
- 3 Tablespoons Shirodashi
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.
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🤓)
Make Soup – Add all seasonings and water in the pot and boil.
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.)
Dekiagari (done)- After it finished cooking, cool it down in the room temperature makes tastier I heard.
