Seafood hot pot.

Shrimp mushroom tofu hotpot

Mom’s seafood hot pot of jumbo shrimp, enoki mushrooms, napa cabbage, lettuce, in a miso broth. And hidden underneath was soft tofu and Kamaboko (Japanese steamed fish cake). Yum. Was stuffed by the end of this and having several cups of that miso broth, so nice and warm and perfect for a cold day.

This was the kamaboko, which was cut into little half moon slabs. I’m particularly fascinated with the little piece of wood that these cakes are packaged with. It’s purely for your chopping convenience, and then it gets chucked, but I kinda think it’s neat.
