 Ingredients for Ginger and Shallot/Scallion Ramen Noodles

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!

      Hi Priscilla, love to hear how you enjoy this really flavoursome sauce for a super quick snack or meal. Regards, Jo and Jen

  2. Meanwhile, cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and toss with as much or as little scallion sauce as you d like in bowl. I made this recipe last night. So easy and so flavorful! I added some pasta water from the ramen noodles to the sauce which helped to bind it all together. Would def add a little miso paste to this next time. What a winner – great cold too!
