Shabu-shabu is a popular winter hot pot, but rarely attractive in summer. This is a cold shabu-shabu recipe. I used chicken breast here, but you can substitute it to thinly sliced beef or pork (they are available at Asian grocery stores).
You can dip chicken and vegetables in ponzu sauce or sesame sauce, just like you would eat hot shabu-shabu. Alternatively, pour the sauce over chicken and vegetables as you would eat salad. Sour flavor of ponzu and toasty aroma of sesame sauce increase appetite.
Small tip: if you want to quickly make sesame flavored ponzu, mix ground sesame seeds and ponzu. It’s delicious, nutritious, and adds wonderful flavor to ordinary ponzu.
Serve with rice, or on top of cold noodles or soba.
