How to Make Squid Noodles (Ika Somen)

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 20 steps you must follow to make Squid Noodles (Ika Somen) in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Here's my squid!
  • Step 2
  • The suckers on fresh squid will stick to you. This isn't a trick!
  • Step 3
  • Insert a finger (the index finger should work best) where the eyes are, and separate the part that's stuck together. Separate the body and guts as far as you can reach.
  • Step 4
  • When the guts have been loosened as much as possible, insert two fingers this time and separate the stuck-on parts that are back.
  • Step 5
  • Holding down the triangular parts (the fins), pull out the cartilage; it looks like a transparent bone.
  • Step 6
  • If you have loosened things up properly in Steps 3 and 4, when you pull the legs and body in opposite directions the insides should come right out.
  • Step 7
  • Pull the fins to peel off the skin. Pull it off in one go! Insert a finger between the skin and body wherever it's stuck, and the skin should come off easily.
  • Step 8
  • Pull the skin from the top of the fins towards the legs, and it should come off cleanly. The fresher the squid, the easier the skin comes off!
  • Step 9
  • Take the skin off. Don't worry if the body rips a bit.
  • Step 10
  • Cut the body open. You can start from a place that got ripped when you took the skin off, or anywhere you like. Just open it up. Take out any remaining guts with your hands, and scrape off any residue with a knife.
  • Step 11
  • Cut off the bottom of the body.
  • Step 12
  • Make small "hidden" cuts on the inside of the cleaned body! Make shallow cuts that go about half way through the body. Use the tip of your knife!
  • Step 13
  • It should look like this.
  • Step 14
  • To turn the squid into somen noodles, slice it very thinly using the tip of your knife. Cut in one smooth stroke from back to front.
  • Step 15
  • Arrange the cut noodles on a plate using metal chopsticks to make it nice.
  • Step 16
  • Arrange on a plate.
  • Step 17
  • Divide the remaining legs and guts. Use in another dish.
  • Step 18
  • Take out the ink sac. Peel it off carefully so you don't break it.
  • Step 19
  • Wrap the guts and legs in foil and cook them, or use them in shio kara (salt-preserved squid). Use the squid ink for risotto or pasta.
  • Step 20
  • I salted down the guts and left it overnight to use in shio kara.
