Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Soak wakame in a bowl of cold water; set aside.

  • Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir chicken and shrimp until chicken is no longer pink in the center and shrimp is bright pink, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Bring 1 pint cold water to a boil and stir in dashi powder; reduce heat to medium and add vermicelli. Mix miso paste and about 2 tablespoons hot dashi broth together in a bowl; pour back into broth and stir until miso is incorporated. Keep liquid at a simmer until noodles are tender, about 2 minutes. Add 1 cup hot water to broth if taste is too strong.

  • Drain wakame. Add wakame, chicken-shrimp mixture, seafood sticks, red chile pepper, soy sauce, and sesame seeds to broth and mix well. Transfer mixture to serving bowls and top with spring onions.

Cook's Note:

Substitute 1 fish stock cube for the dashi powder, if desired.

This was delicious! I will make note to say the noodle preparation is entirely wrong. The noodles need to soak in warm water for 10 minutes. Then immerse them in boiling water for three minutes, afterwards drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process. If you boil the noodles any longer than three minutes they will turn mushy. Read More
