Our dinners menu lately are mostly all in one…cooking one dish meal is so time saving and less washing :) and it is normally a well balanced preparation . Tonight’s dinner menu was Udon In Seafood Soup. There were veggie , seaweed tofu, fresh Korean mushrooms, enoki , prawns and sea clams. The soup base is chicken flavoured undertone and I added konbu to make it more tasty and aromatic. The soup was boiled for ¾ hour under small fire to allow the flavor from the konbu to infuse into the chicken soup. I added in the prawns and sea clams to make up the soup base. Once the prawns turned red and the sea clams has opened up, I added in 1 tablespoon of sake mirin into the soup for extra flavor. Whoaa..the soup was tasty and flavourful. I included some bok choy , korean mushrooms, enoki and seaweed tofu to the Udon thus making this one dish meal a delectable one! And to make it more complete, I garnished it with some nori strips..YUMMY is the word!
My better half has no complaints….seeing him attacking the Udon with so much enthusiasm made me a happy other half… so more one dish meals in the coming days :p
