Sumi ika |Sepia|

These are called sepia in Europe and remember not all squids are the same. You’ll not there is no ridge on this squid, it is a small soft-bodied sepia, and it has two muscular tentacles and 8 powerful arms that have been removed, called geiso.

Squids in general need their food to be finely ground since they have a one-tract digestive system, and it passes through the squid’s brain.

The outer skin is removed and the squid was washed and tensioned with salt and this nigiri has an intentional internal bite to it, a dash of sea-salt and it warms up on the palate.

The end result perfection!
