1tspsoy sauce, (I used regular kikkoman soy sauce)
1/2tspfine sea salt(or more to taste)
300gKalguksu noodlesor fresh ramen or udon noodles (10 ounces)
Somewaterto boil the noodles
100gzucchini(3.5 ounces), julienned
50gcarrot(1.7 ounces), julienned
40gshiitake mushrooms(1.4 ounces), thinly sliced
130gfresh / frozen littleneck clam(4.5 ounces), (weight includes the shells), cleaned / defrosted if frozen
100gprawn(3.5 ounces), head and tail removed, deveined
10ggreen onion(0.3 ounces), chopped
Boil the anchovy and kelp stock in a pot on medium heat. Add the soy sauce, minced garlic and salt to season the stock. Once the stock is rolling boiling, add the zucchini, carrots and shiitake mushrooms and cook until lightly softened (about 2 mins). Then add the clams and prawns and boil until they’re cooked (about 2 mins). Make sure you don’t over cook them as they can get gummy.
(Ideally at the same time as step 1) In a separate pot, boil the noodles in rolling boiling water until cooked (2 to 3 mins). Drain and rinse with cold running water. Set aside.
Add the noodles into pot 1 (from step 1) and boil for one minute to make the noodles warm. Stir around. Add the green onion and turn the heat off. Serve while hot.
