Straight from Fukuoka, which is located in the farthest southern part of Japan, we have a video on how to properly clean and prepare yummy spearhead squid. Looks easy right?!
The video takes you step-by-step on how to prepare the spearhead squid sashimi that you'll often see in Japanese izakayas or restaurants. One of the first steps is to remove the cartilidge and carefully tear out the organ that produces the squids ink. You must be gentle and thorough when using your knife in order to properly make the squid sashimi. Gradually, it starts to look more and more like the sashimi you see in restaurants.
Spearhead squids profile: This squid likely got his name from fisherman who thought it look quite similiar to a spear. So simplistic. It is served raw, sun-dried, boiled, or even salted and is a pretty popular and delicious type of squid.
Once the small inscision are cut into the squid, it is ready to eat! It looks so yummy!
One of the important steps in making delicious squid sashimi is the small incisions that you make, because those small incisions help capture more soy sauce when you dip it. So be sure not to make the slices to deep.
Actually, it's pretty rare for people to cut and prepare there own fish and moreover, there are people who have never done it before. So if you get the chance, how about trying to cut and prepare your own spearhead squid.
