“Sweet, spicy and soupy. The best recipe from Alton Brown's, "I'm Just Here for the Food".”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Heat a saute' pan over high heat, add the oils, then add the mushrooms and toss; to cook until caramelized, about 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  3. Break the "loaf" of noodles into 2 equal parts.
  4. Season the fish with salt and white pepper, spread a little honey on each filet, and sprinkle with chili flakes.
  5. Line the serving bowls with aluminum foil, making sure there is a lot hanging over the edges.
  6. Lay one half-loaf of noodles in each bowl and top with the fish.
  7. Spread the shrimp, mushrooms, and onions around the bottom. Top with the scallions.
  8. Pull the foil up and around the food and crimp it to seal, leaving one tiny opening in each pouch.
  9. Mix the liquids together (soy sauce, mirin and miso or veg stock) and pour half into each pouch and then seal.
  10. Set the pouches on a baking sheet and place in the oven for 22-25 minutes.
  11. Set the pouches back in the bowls and open at the table. A delicious aroma will fill the air as the steam escapes. Serve with chopsticks and a spoon to eat the "soup".
