From the Test Kitchen

In this easy take on Jjamppong, a classic Korean seafood noodle soup, we’re pairing chewy udon, plump shrimp, and tender vegetables with a spicy, savory broth made with gochujang, dried shiitake mushrooms (and the flavorful water they rehydrate in), soy sauce, and more—quickly simmered to bring all of the rich, vibrant flavors together.
This recipe was created in partnership with the wellness experts at WW. To learn more about WW and SmartPoints® visit ww.com

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients & make the broth:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the broth:

Place the shiitake mushrooms in a medium bowl. Add 1 cup of hot water. Set aside to rehydrate at least 10 minutes. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots and thinly slice on an angle. Thinly slice the cremini mushrooms. Combine in a bowl. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Combine in a bowl. Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels; remove the tails. Season with salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, combine the soy sauce, mirin, demi-glace, and 1 1/2 cups of water.

Make the soup:
2 Make the soup:

Reserving the mushroom water, carefully transfer the rehydrated mushrooms to a cutting board; roughly chop. In a large pot, heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced carrots and cremini mushrooms in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the prepared garlic and cabbage and chopped rehydrated mushrooms; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Add as much of the gochujang as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until thoroughly combined. Add the broth (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and reserved mushroom water. Season with salt and pepper. Heat to boiling on high.

Cook the shrimp:
