Today I cooked otsumami using “Hotaru Ika”.
If you like seafood and sake, you might like this food, too.
I tried a recipe using Hotaru ika (Firefly squid)
The other day my mother found the “Hotaru Ika recipe” in a newspaper.
So we got “Hotaru Ika” at a supermarket right away and I tried the recipe today.
It was super easy and I finished cooking in 3 minutes!!
When I ate one, I thought this might go well with sake.
The taste of soy sauce and Ichimi were good for Hotaru Ika.
I love seafood and this was okay, too.
But if you don’t like the peculiar smell of squid, you might not like this.
The smell of the squid was strong.
Anyway, I share the recipe here.
Hotaru Ika (Firefly squid) Otsumami recipe
Ingredients for Hotaru Ika recipe
Boiled Hotaru Ika 90g
Celery 10 cm
Mayonnaise 1 tablespoon
Soy sauce 2 teaspoons ~
Ichimi a little
Salt a little
How to cook Hotaru Ika Otsumami with celery
Cut the celery and put in a little salt and stir it gently.
Remove the eyes.
After you wipe them with kitchen paper gently, put them into a deep plate.
Add mayonnaise and soy sauce and stir them gently.
Put some Ichimi.
Soy sauce is important for this Hotaru Ika recipe
I thought the soy sauce did a good job.
Without soy sauce, the squid smell is a little bit strong.
So don’t forget to put Soy sauce!
I think my father didn’t like this so much because he didn’t have any reaction while eating it 😂
You can buy “Hotaru Ika (Firefly squid)” online
Some supermarkets have Hotaru Ika during March-June, but if you can’t find it, you can get it online.
In Rakuten-Ichiba, this product is so popular!
I always want to eat Hotaru Ika in this season.
Just putting “Sumiso” (Miso and vinegar) is tasty, too!
