shrimp ramen

I love noodles. Especially ramen. I have tried many different kinds of ramen before and I haven’t found any that I didn’t like… (okay, maybe except once or twice). When I found this recipe on one of my cookbooks, I was anxious to try it. I had to make some changes as I am trying to eat healthier, but the original recipe is found here if you’d like to try that instead.

You can used packaged ramen noodles for noodles in this recipe. I happened to have some Asian ramen noodles that I had bought at a Japanese store not too long ago, I used that. But if you like that unique texture of packaged ramen, go for it. I know Shiitake mushrooms are hard to find at supermarkets sometimes. In that case, feel free to use some canned Shiitake mushrooms. You should be able to find some at an Asian aisle.

It was fun to be able to make ramen at home without having to use those yucky and sodium packed soup powder that comes with packaged ramen. It was clean, healthier, and definitely tasty, too!

1 tablespoon olive oil

5 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

2 cups Shiitake mushrooms, sliced thinly (or 2 cans Shiitake mushrooms)

7 cups chicken broth or vegetable broth

Meanwhile, heat oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Add the garlic and saute until it is lightly browned. Add the shiitake mushrooms and stir with the garlic, for about 1 minute.

Stir in the chicken broth, soy sauce, and worcestershire and bring to boiling. Add the shrimp and remove from heat. Let stand until the shrimp cooks through, about 2 minutes.

In four separate bowls, divide ramen and pour in the broth over the ramen. Sprinkle with chive and serve warm.
