Return of the monkfish

Return of the monkfish

A group of friends eat "monkfish hotpot," in which monkfish liver is stewed with vegetables in a soup stock made from dried bonito and kombu, at a ryokan inn in Soma, Fukushima Prefecture.

The ryokan stopped offering the hotpot using monkfish caught off the city after the nuclear crisis at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant in 2011, but resumed serving it in November.

"Monkfish meat is fresh, and the soup is delicious," said Tomoko Nishiya, 40, who had the hotpot with her friends.
