Easy Yakisoba  – 焼きそば

This delicious Yakisoba Recipe is super easy to make. Ready in just 15 minutes! I’m using packaged fresh yakisoba noodles that come with an included seasoning packet. While we’ll be adding ingredients to make this noodle recipe our own, the seasoning packet just nails the homey Japanese flavor I crave when I’m missing Japan.

What is Yakisoba?

Yakisoba (焼きそば) is a stir fried Japanese noodle recipe. And while the literal translation of yaki soba is fried buckwheat, you might be surprised to learn that there’s no buckwheat (soba) used at all in yakisoba. Instead, wheat flour based Chinese style noodles are pan fried with vegetables.

Key Ingredients:

Yakisoba Noodles Shrimp Vegetables Oil Beni Shoga


Cook your onions, cabbage and carrot and cook for 2-3 minutes. Push the veggies to one side of the wok and cook shrimp. Transfer all the ingredients to a bowl and set aside.





Cook one yakisoba serving. Add the seasoning and stir well.  Add the shrimp and stir fried vegetables mixture to the pan and toss well. Transfer to a plate and serve.
