Prawn ramen

Shrimp ramen

I never ever ate any real ramen but I always wanted to have some. So I did a few experiment to get something nice. I tried some pork based broth, some chicken one, but never managed to make something that make me say “Waow!”.
So I bought some precooked ramen, it was the only noodles that I could find with “Ramen” written on it, and used some of the leftover ingredients that I had.
The result was “WAAAOW!”.


Ingredients for one bowl:

  • Ramen noodles
  • 500 ml of water
  • Dashi powder
  • 10 small prawns
  • 1 small onion
  • A very little piece of ginger
  • 1 teaspoon of fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of oyster sauce
  • 4 teaspoon of soy sauce
  • Sesame oil (I used sesame oil infused with garlic and ginger)
  • Miso paste
  • Spices:
    • Cayenne pepper
    • Paprika
    • Curry

For the topping:

  • 1 soft boiled egg
  • 2-3 onion slices
  • Half of a leaf of nori seaweed
  • Wakame seaweed
  • Bonito flakes
  • Shrimps from the broth.

  1. First cut your onion: Keep 2-3 thin slices for the topping and dice the rest in 1cm pieces.
  2. Slice the ginger without removing the skin.
  3. In a pan, warm up some sesame oil and slowly cook on medium heat the onion, ginger and the shrimp. While it is cooking, begin the preparation of the broth.
  4. In a pot, pour the water and the dashi powder and put it on medium heat.
  5. Add the soy sauce, the fish sauce and oyster sauce.
  6. When the ingredients in the pan begin to have a nice smell, put them in the pot and let it simmer at medium low heat for 20-30 minutes.
  7. Sieve the broth to remove everything that is not liquid.
  8. Dissolve a tablespoon of miso in the broth.
  9. Taste and add the spices and a teaspoon of sesame oil.
  10. Cook the ramen as indicated on the packet.
  11. When cooked, rinse the ramen and dray it.
  12. Add them to the soup for 2 minutes.
  13. Serve:
    1. Put some ramen in a bowl
    2. Add some soup to slightly cover it
    3. Add all the topings
