Between September and April of the following year is the best season for enjoying oysters. Apart from eating them raw, oyster hot pot is another great way to savour these gems of the sea. Watch the video or check out the recipe below to learn how to prepare this Japanese-style hot pot.

About Hiroshima Oyster Dote Nabe
Originating in Japan’s Hiroshima prefecture, the Dote Nabe is a miso-flavoured hot pot. Dote means “mud wall”, and Dote Nabe refers to the method of spreading a thick layer of miso seasoning on the edges of the hot pot, then adding the soup base and ingredients into the pot. When the soup slowly boils, the oysters and vegetables will release moisture while the wall of miso melts into the soup, bringing different layers of flavour.
