How to prepare Sushi and Sashimi with Tako 

Tako with a weight of about five pounds are believed to have the best flavor for sushi due to their firm meat, abundant umami, and sweet smells and aromas. In most cases, the flesh of the tako is first kneaded for at least half an hour in order to soften it, and then the tako is boiled (yudedako) in water in order to make it even more pliable. Just before serving, you should give the meat one last little whack with the flat side of the knife to finish the tenderizing process.
