Curry Udon with Prawns #Sponsored #Fortune #ChefYaki

I received complimentary project for recipe development and there are affiliate links in this post. All opinions are my own.

When I received an email from JSL Foods, inviting me to create an udon soup using their Fortune Noodle products, I was excited. They were looking for easy-to-(re)create recipes that are delicious and great for families.

And we love noodles in my household. So, I was eager to take part in their Fortune Asian Noodle Blogger Recipe Challenge. You can read the rules: here

You can purchase JSL Foods products at Shaws, Star Market, Jewel, Albertsons, Randalls, Stater Bros, Safeway, Lucky's, Food Maxx, Food 4 Less, Savemart, Bashas', Raley's, Bel Air, Nob Hill Foods, WinCo, and Target. I was fortunate to receive three different kinds of udon. However, I didn't use any of the flavor packets included; I opted to create my own broth, so I used only the noodles themselves.

This was inspired by my boys' Fall Break trip to Oahu with my parents. Curry udon was something they both loved and asked me to recreate. Done. And - best yet - this is so simple to make.

Ingredients serves 4 generously

  • 2 or 3 packets of udon noodles
  • water
  • 4 C chicken broth
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and pressed
  • 1 C chopped onion
  • 1 C chopped celery
  • 1 C chopped carrots
  • 4 T soy sauce
  • 2 T curry powder
  • 1 T hot sauce (I used Sriracha)
  • 1 pound prawns, shelled and deveined (I took off the heads, but left the tails on)


In a large souppot, heat olive oil. Stir in garlic, onions, carrots, celery. Cook until vegetables beginning to soften. Stir in curry powder, soy sauce, and hot sauce. Pour in chicken broth and whisk in coconut milk until well-combined. Bring to a simmer and poach prawns until pink and opaque.

Cook the udon noodles in a large pot of boiling water, according to package directions. When al dente, drain well, rinse, and divide between 4 large bowls. 

Ladle in the curry broth and top with cooked prawns. Serve immediately.

All three boys gave this a thumbs up. "No tweaking necessary. It's good as is, Mom." Perfect. Done.
