Korean Seafood Tofu Soup (Soon Doo Boo Jjigae)

This Korean spicy soup is my second favorite soup after tom yam seafood soup, it is great for cold weather or when I don't have much apatite for anything.

I almost always made this whenever I have ingredients in the fridge!!

4-5 Shrimps
4-5 clams/shell fish (or basically, any seafood)
1/4 piece of silken tofu (Cubed)
1/2 Zucchini  (Sliced)
1/4 Onion (Sliced)
1/2 Tomato (cubed)
2-3 slices of kimchee (cut into 1 inch)
2-3 chilies (slice) Optional
2 cups of chicken or fish stock

1 tbsp Korean spicy sauce
1-2 tsp Miso/Korean soy bean paste
Fish sauce to taste Optional

The Zucchini I used was from my garden... so tender and fresh... hmmmm

In a cooking pot, stir fry onion with little oil, when it turn translucent, add Kimchee and stir fry for a minute, add the stock and bring to boil.

Now add 1 tbsp of Korean chili sauce, bring to boil again, add tofu, zucchini,  tomato and sliced chili, cook for 3-5 minutes.

Now add all the seafood and cook for another 3-5 minutes until everything is cooked, season with miso/Korean soy paste and fish sauce, garnish with some chopped scallion.

I like to have it with steamed rice..
