Ginger and Shallot/Scallion ramen noodles is a step up in the flavour department of our youth. Ramen noodles featured in our adolescent years as a quick pantry snack for anytime of the day. We were introduced to the ramen phenomenon years ago through a family friend, whose mother was Japanese.
Open the packets, add water and snip the sachets and squeeze into the water. Once simmering, add two eggs and whisk through the hot broth until the eggs are just cooked. Pour into a large bowl and spoon and twirl away. Delicious and still a guilty pleasure all these years later.
This recipe takes on the Hainanese chicken rice sauce of finely sliced shallots, ginger and garlic mixed and pouring boiling oil over them to sizzle, and then adding some soy sauce and sesame oil to flavour the sauce. Toss the quickly cooked ramen through the sauce and serve yourself a bowl of hot deliciousness, sprinkled with some chilli oil, toasted seaweed flakes and toasted sesame seeds. Big Fat Yum!
So quick to prepare
Ramen noodles take 2 minutes to cook and using a small food processor to finely chop your ginger and garlic makes quick work preparing these delicious noodles.
