15-Minute Salmon Nabe (Hot Pot)

This 15-minute salmon nabe (Japanese salmon hot pot) was my simple but pampering meal for one. I made it on Friday, where I ended my WFH slightly early for the week. Such a meal is my way of indulging myself before the start of the weekend, by way of an affordable izakaya-at-home. This simple hot pot had fresh salmon chunks, mushrooms and napa cabbage. You can serve it with multigrain rice, or cook some chewy udon for a one-dish meal. Since I am having a few drinks, I skipped the carbs and enjoyed it with some sake (liquid carb :P)

As a luxurious touch, I garnished the dish with my favourite salmon roe :)~~ These days, I enjoyed relaxing and staying home a lot more, and a nice & quick home-cooked meal definitely contribute to that. 

INGREDIENTS & STEP-BY-STEP (15-Minute Salmon Nabe)


Marinated Salmon for Hot Pot
Drizzle sake (or any rice wine) over fresh salmon fillet (cut into chunks) and season with a tiny sprinkle of salt. Let the salmon marinate for 5 minutes. This will remove any strong or fishy smell.

2. Easy nabe soup broth

15-Minute Salmon Nabe Soup Base

Make a quick nabe broth. I used a combination of dashi soup broth (by using an instant dashi soup pack) and then seasoning the soup with  ramen paitan concentrate for a slightly thicker & cloudy soup base. You can also buy ready-to-cook hot pot soup pack from the supermarkets, but I like to make my own soup broth to save money. This soup broth is enough for two servings and you can keep the leftover soup in the fridge for a few days.

3. Hot pot ingredients (veggies and mushrooms)

15-Minute Salmon Nabe Veggies
Line a fitting and shallow casserole with napa cabbage, followed by mushrooms, carrots and Japanese scallions. I’m using a smallish 300ml casserole, though I think 500ml will be slightly more ideal to accommodate more ingredients for one person.

4. Cook the salmon nabe
