Real FactsEdit

Dobu-Jiru (どぶ汁, literally "Juice from the Ditch") is a traditional dish eaten by fishermen from the Ibaraki and Fukushima prefectures.  This hot pot dish consists of monkfish, vegetables such as radishes, and, because freshwater is not readily available at sea, miso (fermented soybeans).  The conventional dobu-jiru requires the use of fresh monkfish, and because moisture content is different between fishes, requires considerable attention to prepare.  As such, it is difficult to prepare for mass consumption.[1]
