Jjamppong Korean Spicy Seafood Noodle Soup (짬뽕) is a popular Korean spicy noodle soup that is loaded with various type of seafood. It tastes very refreshing and comforting. At our house we have some family members that just LOVE spicy seafood…and since we have access to local fresh seafood it makes it that much better!
What is Jjamppong Korean Spicy Seafood Noodle Soup?
Jjamppong Korean Spicy Seafood Noodle Soup (or Jjampong, 짬뽕) is one of the most popular dishes you can order from a Korean-Chinese restaurant. Jjamppong consists of fresh noodles, various vegetables and various seafoods and it is served in a red hot soup base. Generally the soup can be quite spicy but it can be toned down if you’re cooking it at home.
In Korea, jjamppong’s popularity always competes with jajangmyeon (Korean black bean noodles, 자장면). If you can’t decide between jjamppong and jajangmyeon, then you can order jjamjjamyeon (짬짜면) instead. Jjjamjjamyeon (yes, its a mouthful to say..) is both types of noodle dishes served in a bowl that is divided in the middle. So you don’t have to compromise! We are going to use our Salt Free Udon in combination with our Kaedama Fresh Ramen Packs to give you a slightly different taste that will delight and surprise.
