Recipe By: Paul Wilson
500g kimchi relish, roughly chopped into bite size pieces
1 smoked ham hock
2.5 litres of chicken stock
2 star anise
250g smoked pork belly, cubed
250g boneless chicken thighs, cubed
2 peeled carrots, cubed
50g sliced dried Spiral Shiitake
1 litre of chicken stock
100ml Spiral Organic Shoyu Sauce
50g dried Spiral Organic Wakame seaweed
2 bunches of spring onions, cut into bite size pieces
1 packet of silken tofu, cut into 8 pieces
One packet of Spiral Organic Udon noodles
Spiral Sesame oil
Peeled prawn cutlets (2 per person)
50g shredded Spiral nori
Cover ham hock and kimchi with chicken stock. Add star anise, and simmer for two hours gently or till the hock is very tender.
Once cool, pass the stock, retaining the kimchi & ham hock pieces, to garnish the soup.
Now combine the stock with the soup ingredients except the tofu, noodles and prawns. Simmer gently for one hour over a very low heat.
Then add the noodles and cook for four minutes, followed by the prawns, then a minute later the tofu. Add in the kimchi and ham hock pieces. Ladle into suitable bowls and serve garnished with shredded nori.
