  1. Make the shabu shabu: Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion, scallions and garlic, and cook, stirring, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add kombu and 6 cups of water and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer gently over low heat for 20 minutes. Transfer kombu to a cutting board and chop into 2-inch pieces; add back to broth. Stir in ginger and season with salt.
  2. Bring broth to a gentle simmer. Add daikon and mushrooms, and simmer for 2 minutes. Add bok choy and tofu, and stir, cooking until vegetables are tender, about 3 minutes longer.
  3. Meanwhile, make the dipping sauce. In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients.
  4. Serve shabu shabu with dipping sauce and lime wedges. Any remaining kombu broth can be saved for soup another day.
