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.

Easy cooking!

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 😂

I always want to eat Hotaru Ika in this season.
Just putting “Sumiso” (Miso and vinegar) is tasty, too!
