2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Make the kombu dashi; soften the mushrooms

  • Cut the ginger lengthwise into ¼-inch-thick slices. 

In a large frying pan, combine the ginger, kombu, shiitake mushrooms, and 3 cups water and bring to a boil. (For 4-serving instructions, see Chef’s Tip.) Using a slotted spoon, remove the kombu and discard. Cover the pan and continue to boil, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms have softened, 3 to 5 minutes. While the kombu dashi is cooking and the mushrooms are softening, prepare the remaining ingredients.


Prep the remaining ingredients

  • Cut away any core from the cabbage; cut the cabbage into 2-inch pieces.
  • Remove any coarse stems from the broccoli leaves; cut the leaves into 2-inch pieces.
  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel (if using barramundi, discard the skin). Cut the salmon, barramundi, or halibut into 2-inch pieces. Season the fish lightly with salt and pepper. 


Finish the hot pot

To the pan with the kombu dashi and mushrooms, stir in the coconut aminos and season with salt and pepper. Arrange the cabbage, broccoli leaves, fish, and carrots on top of the broth, then cover and bring to a simmer. Cook, gently pressing the ingredients into the broth and spooning the broth over occasionally, until the vegetables are crisp-tender and the fish is opaque and cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper and the toasted sesame oil.


Transfer the hot pot to the table and invite everyone to serve themselves. Remove and discard the ginger slices before eating.
