Easy and Flavorful Squid with Daikon Radish

Easy and Flavorful Squid with Daikon Radish

You'll get so much flavor in your mouth when you bite into the daikon radish.
The squid is tender.
The daikon radish will absorb flavors even if it's cut in round slices.

Ingredients: 2 servings

100 g
Daikon radish
300 g
200 ml
1 tablespoon
1/2 teaspoon
☆Soy sauce
1 tablespoon
2 tablespoons


1. Cut the squid and radish into round slices.
2. Put some cuts into the radish. Cut around all the edges. If it's not too troublesome, bevel the edges as well (In order to let the flavor soak inside).
3. Helpful tip: It's easy to bevel the radish if you use a peeler.
4. Combine water, squid and radish into a pot and simmer.
5. Once the radish is transparent, combine the ☆ ingredients and place an aluminum otoshibuta drop lid on top of it. Cook for about 15 minutes. (Wrinkle the aluminum foil.)
6. Turn off the heat and let it sit for at least 30 minutes. (This time allows the flavor to soak into the radish.)
7. Heat it up again before serving, arrange it onto a plate and it's ready.
