Shrimp Noodle Soup

Such great flavors in this delicious soup! It really hits the spot on a cold night. Yes, we've been having some cold nights in South Florida too and while you're snickering over that comment, keep in mind it's all relative.  :)
I don't make a lot of soups, unlike my sister, who is the worlds greatest soup maker in my opinion. But this one appealed to me...I loved the colors and it's a hearty, warming soup even though it's light in calories.

Shrimp Noodle Soup

From Style At Home

4 baby bok choy
12 sugar snap peas
12 shrimp, peeled
1/2 teaspoon of grated ginger
1 tablespoon of peanut (or canola) oil
A pinch of dried chilies
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1 teaspoon of sesame oil
2 teaspoon of light soy sauce
2 spring onions, sliced
4 cups of chicken stock (homemade, hopefully)
Toasted sesame seeds for garnishing
300 grams of dried udon noodles


Cook the noodles according to package instructions. Run them under cold water once cooked, and reserve.

In the meantime, add the bok choy (cut in half lengthwise) and the sugar snap peas to a pot of boiling water. Boil for 2 minutes. Shock the vegetables by placing them in ice cold water. Once the vegetables are cold, drain and remove excess water with paper towels.

Heat your wok to medium low heat. Add the peanut oil, ginger, garlic and dried chili. Stir fry for 2 minutes. Add the peeled shrimp. Once the shrimp starts to turn pink, add the vegetables, stirring constantly. Add the noodles and then the chicken broth. Bring to a boil.
Once the broth has come to a boil, add the soy sauce, sesame oil and spring onions and cook for another minute. 
Serve topped with toasted sesame seeds.

Serves 4.


  1. Light and flavorful! Rhis noodle soup looks marvelous.



  2. I've been posting soup recipes this month, too. And yes, everything is relative, because as cold as it's been here in Toronto, I know there are many places in Canada that are much colder. Right now, I'm just holding on until spring!

  3. It looks fabulous..Love all the ings.. a light broth ..the sesame oil..shrimps..bok choy etc..

    Barbara I pinned your little weiners /corndisks.. every day I get up..and it's repinned by so many..

  4. I made Noodle Soup this week also, Barbara. I didn't realize you were getting the chills down there too. My soup was chicken but let me tell you, I would much prefer shrimp and your soup has tons of things in it that sound so much better than mine. Although, Marion was quite happy with it:)

    Thank you so much for sharing, Barbara...stay warm:)

  5. The shrimp the Knight saved for Sissy is in danger. I might need this soup tomorrow. Yum!

  6. this looks wonderful a meal in a soup

  7. It's 40 here. I'm not happy.

  8. Nice and comforting soup Barbara...this is the kind of soup that I grew up with...delicious with shrimps.
    Have a great week :D

  9. Light yet so full of flavours, Barbara.

  10. SOUP! I've been surviving on it lately. Love the flavors in this!

  11. Asian soups are pure comfort food for me.

  12. This will be a delicious change from the soups I have been making lately. Its lightness is particularly appealing since we are still recovering from rich holiday foods. I love all the flavors in that beautiful broth.

  13. You are on a roll with these great ideas with shrimp! this one would be light, but satisfying.

    and you're right---it is all relative, with this weather thing. Single digits tonight in Nashville will have us all bundled up and hunkered down to stay warm!

  14. dear Barbara, I know it is all relative and for Florida the weather is cold. I hope the oranges will survive.
    Though, it is very cold here but I suppose that is what winter is all about.
    The soup looks very good and I love the bowl. It is so pretty.
    Well, stay warm and cozy. Blessings dear. Catherine xo

  15. I couldn't remember what the bok choy was called when I looked at the photo and was like "how old do I feel that my memory is slipping!"
    We've been eating a lot of soup here in new england; it's the only thing that warms the bones!

  16. We made VERY similar recipes this past week :) I love all of the flavors in your soup and easier to put together than the one I made. I can't wait to try this!

  17. I am sure for the Florida standards is cold there too! The soup is the perfect remedy my dear! Stay warm!

  18. Love soups. This certainly would be simple, delicious and a crowd pleaser. Cannot wait to make it - and I will!

  19. Gosh, that's beautiful. All those pretty colours make it look so fresh and lovely, and its super healthy. I'm in Florida too now, but luckily I arrived right after the cold snap.
    *kisses* H

  20. It has been soup weather here- this one looks like it would warm you up! Love the shrimp! :)

  21. I'm so surprised with your weather Barbara. And what a beautiful bowl of soup. I'm always looking for ways to use Baby Bok Choy. Such a pretty vegetable.
