Spicy Seafood Kimchi Soup is what I have been wanting to cook for quite a while. I love Korean food. Most of the Korean foods are very delicious and healthy. One particular one that I like is kimchi which I made very often. It is very appetising. It goes very well with many other dishes. It is easy to make kimchi at home. Go to the link below for recipe to make kimchi.

The weather is getting very cold and a spicy soup would just be most welcoming. We had been having a lot of chicken and turkey soups lately so it’s time for a change.  A spicy seafood soup would be one that I know my family would like. I was so excited to try it out over the weekend when everyone is home. I was right. It came out very, very delicious…just so appetising. Everyone liked it very much. We only had this soup with rice for lunch. Here’s my recipe to share. It’s enough for 4-6 people. It’s again a very simple, easy and quick recipe.

Ingredients A
200g baby corn
1 carrot

Add vegetables to the pot

Add all of Ingredients B and C to the pot above when the vegetables are cooked. Once it boils, it’s cooked. Add more hot bean paste if you like it hotter. Adjust the seasoning according to your taste.

Now, you’re making me really hungry. Anything with kimchi is good and with seafood, I would like to have a huge bowl of that. But they tastes better if I’m also living in Scotland, right. :D

Shirley  on December 7th, 2009

Never tried Korean or kimchi. Should try.

elin  on December 7th, 2009

Mary…thanks for sharing such a delicious seafood kimchi soup…mmm I ill definitely try this out…I love korean food. Kimchi is one of them I love and have tried making :)

Mary  on December 7th, 2009

@Divina - If I eat this back home, I think I have to eat in air conditioned room….haha. It sure tastes so awesome in this type of cold weather.

@Shirley - Kimchi is very healthy. It’s very appetising. It’s expensive to buy but cheap if you make it yourself.

@Elin - Hope you try out soon. My family really liked it. I’ll be cooking it often.

Talk about different and interesting as you said on my post, you got me on this one :), not sure what hot bean paste or kimchi, wow great to read about foods all over the world.. this sure looks and sounds good. I love hot foods, and of course fish!
Those little corns are adorable, I always eat those in stir frys..

3hungrytummies  on December 7th, 2009

with a big bowl of rice i’ll be very happy!

Mary  on December 7th, 2009

@Pegasuslegend - Both the hot bean paste and the kimchi are very Korean. You can get the hot bean paste in Korean or Oriental shops. It is really great for cooking this seafood soup or even any other meat dish.

@3hungrytummies - That’s what happened to us.
Everyone was so satisfied and happy.

Trissa  on December 7th, 2009

I need to get this Korean bean paste - I think you’ve used it twice already - must really be good!

Christine@Christine's Recipes  on December 7th, 2009

Your spicy kimchi soup is perfectly right for me. Can I have one bowl?
Love Korean foods very much, esp. their BBQ beef. Their BBQ sauce is very very yummmmmm……

foodlovee  on December 7th, 2009

Anything with seafood sure good.With your recipe sure yummy.

Mary  on December 7th, 2009

@Trissa - Yes, this Korean hot bean paste is very good. I would recommend to everyone who loves Asian food. I’m sure you can get it in any Korean or Asian shops over at your side.

@Christine - Come….I’ll cook many bowls for you….eat all you can :) Yes, their bulgogi is very delicious…unbeatable…..yum. Gosh….so many other delicious dishes to name.

@foodlovee - This is one I will cook often. We like it.

Light Delight with TouTou  on December 7th, 2009

The kimchi soups is my favorite thing to order in Korean restaurants :-D but they are NOT as generous as you to put so much seafood in it! haha
this looks really yummy and perfect for the cold days!!! your family members are so lucky to have you :-D

anncoo  on December 7th, 2009

WOW! Lots of ingredients in the kimchi soup. My Korean friend once taught me to make kimchi and your kimchi looks so good.

Alta  on December 7th, 2009

Sounds tasty! I just read a bunch of recipes in Saveur magazine on making various kimchis - this would be a great use of a recipe, should I choose to make it! Also I love that there are mussels in this soup - yum!

Sarah, Maison Cupcake  on December 7th, 2009

This looks like an ideal Monday night dinner to me!

Mary  on December 7th, 2009

@Light Delight with Tou Tou - Now I think you have to come to my ‘restaurant’…my little kitchen here….hehe. I’ll have double portion of seafood for you :P Otherwise you have to cook yourself and put as much as you want…like what I did so that everyoone ate until fully satisfied.

@Anncoo - I have to make there are enought seafood for everyone…otherwise there would be nothing left for me …LOL. It happened sometimes. Making kimchi is easy. I’m sure yours is delicious too.

@Alta - Try the kimchi. It’s very nice with other dishes, especially meat or even with noodles and rice. It’s what makes this soup special.

@Sarah - It’s a quick meal to fix if you cook this soup. Give a go at it.

Jeannie Tay  on December 7th, 2009

Looks so delicious with all those shrimps floating in your soup…they are my favourite seafood. By the way, congrats on being top 9 in foodbuzz:D

Erica  on December 7th, 2009

Wow! That looks absolutely delicious! I am a huge fan of salmon.

Natasha - 5 Star Foodie  on December 7th, 2009

What a unique soup with kimchi! I love the shrimps & salmon here too! Yummy!

cheah  on December 7th, 2009

Have eaten kimchi before, but never tried kimchi soup. This soup is sure a keeper for the winter.

Mary  on December 7th, 2009

@Jeannie - Thanks very much for congrats….a good Sunday surprise for my Creamy Prawns. Seafood & salmon are all my favourites.

@Erica - Thnaks for visiting and comment. Salmon in this soup is fantastic. Hope you try out soon.

@Natasha - Kimchi gives a little sour taste to the soup which is very appetising. It makes this soup very unique and delicious.

@Cheah - Try eating kimchi with noodle soup….very delicious. We really like it very much.

Amy @ Simply Sugar & Gluten Free  on December 7th, 2009

I have never had kimchi - I did have Korean BBQ once in San Fran years ago and loved it. This looks incredible and so satisfying.

Mary  on December 7th, 2009

@Amy - Korean BBQ is really one of the best. It is really delicious….mmm. Korean restaurants almost always serve kimchi together with their food. Sometimes you have to order separately. We always order extra kimchi if we ever go to Korean restaurants. Most of the time we cook it at home.

Sook  on December 7th, 2009

Amazing! What a great way to enjoy kimchi and soup! Have you ever tried canned tuna in kimchi soup? So good!

Mary  on December 7th, 2009

@Sook - Tuna in kimchi soup? I just have to try that. Thanks for suggestion. It has to be good. I have yet to try tofu with kimchi soup. I think it will be very good too.

lululu  on December 7th, 2009

kimchi is one of my favorites!!!!! the more spicy it is, the more i love it!
my aunt makes really good kimchi tofu soup. now i will pass along the kimchi seafood soup reciep to her! :P

Mary  on December 7th, 2009

@lululu - I agree that the more spicy, the more delicious it is. But I always cook it quite mild so that everyone can enjoy it. I hope to make kimchi soup soon.

Simply Life  on December 7th, 2009

I would love to have this in my belly right now opposed to the burnt tasting soup I made today :( Being sick definitely hinders my cooking ability siiiiigh but once I recover I am definitely trying this - Kimchi is deeelicious!

Mary  on December 8th, 2009

Rachel J  on December 8th, 2009

My boyfriend and I were just thinking of buying some jarred kimchi last night to make this very soup! Life’s coincidences are so lovely, and when I make his favorite Korean soup I am using your recipe. Thanks!

Mary  on December 8th, 2009

@Rachael - What exciting news! True lovely coincidence. Bet you and your boyfriend had a lovely meal. Now you can also try to make your own kimchi instead of buying.

kristy  on December 10th, 2009

I’ve never tried making any kimchi soup even I’ve my homemade kimchi. I’ll just give it away to my friends & neighbour. Not a big fan of it! But if someone cook for me, then I would love to try though. hahaha….

Mary  on December 11th, 2009

@Kristy - Now I think you better come here, then I’ll cook for you :) It’s very appetising and delicious. My family likes it very much.
