Somen #JapaneseRecipesWorldwide


4 bundles of somen noodles
1 inch piece of ginger
Pink and white kamaboko, sliced thinly

For Dipping Sauce:

2 ½ cups dashi
½ cup dark shoyu
4 tbsp mirin


(1) Bring a large pot of water to a roiling boil. Prepare the noodles (each bundle is one serving), according to the package directions. Somen water is not used, so you can dump out the water into a colander and immediately run the somen under cool running water, tossing until cool.

(2) Fill 4 large bowls with cold water, and place a few ice cubes in each. Place a quarter of the somen in each bowl, and top with the sliced kamaboko. Grate the ginger and serve with noodle dipping sauce.

)3) Serves 4

  1. Ohh, love this - Though, I don't think we have dashi in the country or maybe I just didn't know where to get one.

  2. Japanese dishes are known to be rich in flavor so I'm sure this will be very delicious.

  3. I haven't tasted one but not sure where to get some of the ingredients here in Dubai.
