Japanese Teriyaki Cast Iron Grill Jumbo Squid

We have been searching to have this jumbo squid for quite some time, finally we found these in one of the frozen department. So tonight will be a Japanese dinner night for us, with teriyaki grill jumbo squid, white radish pork ball soup, and it is good fit to our balance low carb diet day.

Japanese dish is always paired with Teriyaki sauce, but i am trying not to use a ready sauce or reduce the portion, so i cut the Teriyaki ready sauce into 1/4 portion, just to cut down the sugar portion. I have added in some other seasoning sauces to match it closer.
