This evening I went out with my students for Fish Hot Pot.
Earlier this year I went out with another class in Shanghai for Hot Pot, but this place was definitely a bit different.
You may know that hot pot is a style of food where you cook food in a hot pot of broth or stock. In this case we each had an individual pot.
The main course was thinly sliced grouper. The slices of fish are so thin that you can see through them when they are stretched out on the plates they are delivered on.
You pick up the slice of fish with chopsticks and then drop it in the broth and let it quickly cook. You swish it around in the broth using a very similar technique to Shabu-Shabu.
The fish is delicious and you also get a little crunch factor from the bit of skin.
You also cook other fish and seafood in the hot pot and also have different side dishes along with the meal. I may share pictures of some of them in a future post.
However, for now you only get a look at the main course.
Definitely a new food experience for me tonight.
Have you had fish hot pot?
