Shrimp and Soba Noodles in Ginger Broth - The Lemon Bowl

We could pretend that the record-cold temperatures we’ve been having are the cause for my Asian noodle soup cravings but let’s be real: I’m up for a slurp fest any time of year – even when it’s 90 degrees outside. 

There is something so comforting and satisfying about a warm bowl of ginger-infused chicken broth flavored with rice vinegar, soy sauce and chili paste. I can’t get enough of it and eat a different version of Asian noodle soup almost weekly.

Most recently, I created this Shrimp and Soba Noodle bowl using beautiful frozen shrimp from Omaha Steaks. I will be partnering with them in the coming months to create new recipes for SteakBytes, their recipe blog, but will always share them here on The Lemon Bowl as well.

For a spicy kick, I love topping these bowls with thinly sliced jalapeños. If you don’t like super spicy food, another trick I learned from my sister is to infuse the broth with the jalapeño slices for 1-2 minutes then remove the peppers before eating.

Your chop sticks are waiting.

    I added the soy sauce and rice vinegar with the broth, was that correct?

    I bet the broth would be great to poach fish in to serve instead of shrimp! I am planning on making this for my best friend’s birthday, she loves ginger

    Soba’s one of those dried goods that I always keep stocked in my pantry! I love them in a soup or cold (tossed with a bit of soy sauce and a dash of sesame oil). Love that this is steeped in flavorful broth!

    This soup sounds wonderful. I’d have to do it with chicken to get my husband to eat it – he doesn’t like shrimp.

    Congrats on partnering with Omaha Steaks. I really appreciate that you will share the recipes you do for them on your blog – can’t tell you how much I hate having to go to yet another page for a recipe that doesn’t print well…

    I make something similar to this for my family…”When can we have soba noodle soup again, Mum?” and it always warms us to our toes. I love the addition of shrimp.
