I didn’t always like spicy food. As a kid, it took me a while before I could tolerate spicy. And now, I can’t get enough heat! If you’ve tasted jjamppong (spicy seafood noodle soup) before, you know what a glorious day today is .. Why, you ask? Because I’m sharing this fabulous recipe with you all and now you can make this at home!
It’s funny. . when you don’t have something around anymore, you miss it terribly. This was the case when we lived in Los Angeles and had a Korea town close by. And actually, forget Korea town, there were Korean restaurants everywhere in the Los Angeles area and surrounding cities, so you could go get your fix whenever you had a craving. Now, when we have the yearning/craving for Korean food, I have to make it here at home.
I don’t mind though because it has forced me to learn how to make some of my childhood favorites.
Nothing says comfort more than a big bowl of jjamppong. Filled with shrimp, clams, mussels, cabbage, spinach, mushrooms and onions, this soup delivers big time.
And guess what? To make this spicy seafood noodle soup even better, I made my own HOMEMADE pasta noodles!!! So, you have to head over to KitchenAid’s blog, The Kitchenthusiast to read my post and to get this recipe. Have you had jjamppong before? If so, I’d love to hear about it!!
If you’re a Korean food, Chinese food and/or seafood lover, you will LOVE this. I hope you enjoy!
