If you’re tired of the usual squid preparations—dried, deep-fried, canned, adobo, or smoked, – perhaps you’d lie to try something different for a change.  How about turning Japanese?  How about you try a Sashimi Squid, a fancy yet easy-to-fix viand.  You don’t even have to cook!  


¼ fresh squid

½ cup soy sauce

Lemon or calamnsi 


1.   Wash the squid thoroughly .  Remove excess water.

2.   Slice the squid’s body into two, lengthwise.  Remove the head, tentacles, quill and viscera.

3.   Carefully separate the skin from the squid’s flesh.  Slice the flesh into 10 mm wide strips crosswise.

4.   Serve with soy sauce and calamansi or lemon.  It is also best served when cooled in the refrigerator for about an hour.
