Pick your protein


1.Rub your choice of protein with miso; set aside until required.
2.Heat oil in a large heavy-based saucepan over low heat; cook shallots, garlic and ginger for 2 minutes or until soft and fragrant.
3.Increase heat to medium. Cook chosen protein for 1 minute on each side or until browned lightly. If using tofu, remove from pan and cut into 2cm thick slices. Add sesame oil, soy sauce, vinegar and palm sugar to pan; cook for a further 1 minute. Return tofu, if using, to pan.
4.Add stock and bring to a simmer over high heat; cook, covered, for 5 minutes. Add noodles; cook for 1 minute. Add buk choy and mushrooms; cook, covered, for a further 2 minutes or until noodles are just soft and vegetables are just cooked. Stir in lime juice.
5.Top hotpot with coriander, green onion and chilli; serve.

If using ocean trout or chicken, use chicken stock. If using tofu, use vegetable stock.

If using ocean trout, for best results, use even-sized thick pieces from the middle of the fillet, or use salmon fillets, if preferred.
