Swordfish over Ginger Hot and Sour Soba Soup


Hot and sour Asian-inspired flavors of lemongrass, lime, ginger, and jalapeno come together in this hot and sour soba noodle soup topped with seared swordfish and bok choy.


  • 4 cups water
  • 2 (6 ounce) swordfish steaks
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium vegetable bouillon
  • 1 medium lime, juiced, divided
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1 red jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced, or to taste
  • 1 stalk lemongrass, split lengthwise
  • 5 sprigs cilantro, stemmed and roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic, divided
  • 1 ounce finely chopped ginger
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 5 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced
  • 2 heads baby bok choy, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 14 ounces buckwheat noodles
  • 3 drops sesame oil, or more to taste


  1. Bring water to a boil in a pot. Rinse swordfish and pat dry; season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Reduce boiling water to a simmer. Stir in bouillon and 3/4 of the lime juice. Add carrots, bean sprouts, soy sauce, green onions, jalapeno, lemongrass, cilantro, 2/3 of the garlic, and ginger. Simmer broth for at least 10 minutes.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add mushrooms; season with a pinch of salt and pepper and add remaining garlic. Cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer mushrooms to a bowl. Wipe the pan clean if there are bits stuck to the bottom.
  3. Return pan to medium-high heat; add remaining olive oil and swordfish. Cook until internal temperature reaches at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C), 4 to 5 minutes per side. Squeeze remaining lime juice over the fish and set aside to rest.
  4. Add mushrooms and bok choy to the broth. Continue simmering on low, about 5 minutes. Add soba noodles; cook until heated through, 5 to 7 minutes. Add sesame oil.
  5. Cut each block of noodles in half and divide between 4 bowls. Ladle vegetables and broth over the top. Cut swordfish steaks into equal pieces and place one on top of each bowl.
