What is Jjamppong?

Jjamppong (짬뽕), or jjambbong, is a popular Korean noodle soup made with a spicy seafood broth that’s seasoned with gochugaru (spicy and smoky Korean red chili flakes), and is topped with vegetables and seafood. Jjamppong can also be made with pork broth and sliced pork as a topping, or a mix of both seafood and pork.

Key Ingredients:

Shiitake Mushrooms Gochugaru Seafood Noodles


Boil water to cook the noodles. Cook the garlic and onion in oil. Cook the onion for 2 minutes and add the cabbage, shiitake mushrooms, and half of the scallions. Stir in the gochugaru and seafood and cook for 1 minute. Add the stock, soy sauce, and salt and bring the soup to a boil. Simmer until the seafood is cooked, about 6 to 7 minutes, and turn the heat off. Divide the jjamppong soup and seafood among the two bowls then add in to the cooked noodles and top with the remaining scallions. Enjoy!
