Spicy Shrimp Noodle Soup

This is a very easy soup to make if you have all the ingredients on stock at home. At home, I don't usually have alot of time to cook, so when I do, the dishes are usually quick and easy. If you love spicy food you would love the flavor of this soup and if you are congested..this will open your nostrils right away! lol.  The flavors are very comforting to me...of course because of the eastern flavors.  I've been playing around with Japanese buckwheat noodles at home and I really love the way they compliment in soups due to their texture.  Now, some people may be against the fact that I used chicken broth in a seafood type dish, but the flavor was exactly where I wanted it to be and was quite satisfied.  If you try this at home, I hope you enjoy it and replace your "instant" soups with a quick home made soups like this :)
