RECIPE BELOW – I love making and eating soup when cold season folds in. This soup is so simple with MISO, Garlic chili paste and Oyster sauce as its base. What makes this soup interesting is the crispy salmon I topped it with. I just called it Korean because I used Korean Noodles, but feel free to use it any way you want!.. Simplicity at its best! Hope you have a nice WINTER! ENJOY!
