- Rinse kombu sheets under cold running water. Place kombu in a large bowl and submerge in cold water for 15 minutes; drain.
- Combine 2 cups of water and broth in a medium saucepan; add kombu and bring to a simmer. Once simmering, remove and discard kombu. Pour broth mixture into a fondue pot, slow cooker or chafing dish; keep at a simmer over low heat.
- In a small bowl, stir together soy sauce, lemon juice and chives; divide sauce among 4 small condiment bowls. Divide shrimp, boy chok, mushrooms and squash among 4 serving plates, or arrange on a large serving platter.
- Using a skewer, fondue fork or other long-handled fork, swirl shrimp and vegetables, one piece at a time, through broth until cooked through, about 1 to 3 minutes. Dip cooked shrimp or vegetables into sauce and eat. Yields about 3 cups of shabu shabu ingredients per serving.
