Hello lovelies! I know I’ve been MIA for a while, but I’m back to deliver this yummy recipe. Yesterday, I wanted to eat ramen so I decided to utilize what I had at home. I got so many messages about this recipe so I figured I would blog about it.
Here Are The Ingredients:
- Large Unpeeled Shrimp with the Head On
- Fresh Ginger
- Fresh Garlic
- Habanero Pepper
- Greens of Your Choice
- Cilantro (Optional)
- Large Eggs
- Ramen Noodles (I used Indomie Noodles)
- Siracha (Optional)
Okay, let’s get right into it!
Making the Broth:
- Cut in medium chunks the following: Fresh Ginger, Fresh Garlic, Fresh habanero pepper, onions
- Add your choice of meat. I used chicken and large shrimp with the shell and head.
- Put water in a pot and add your chicken with the fresh ingredients (we’ll add the shrimp later)
- Season with salt, thyme, coriander, knor cubes, slap yo mama, red pepper, chopped chives and anything else you may like.
- Bring to a boil for about 30 mins. After which you add your shrimp. Cook shrimp till it’s orange in color then once it’s cooked, remove from the pot.
- Once it’s cool down, chop off the head of the shrimp and carefully pull the shell off the body.
- Add the head and shell back into to pot and boil for another 30 mins.
- Once your chicken is tender, remove it from the pot.
- After about an hour of cooking the broth, strain the garlic, onions, shrimp head and casings, etc from the broth. You should be left with a rich clear broth.
- Discard the shrimp head and shells.
- Put the ginger, onions, garlic and pepper that was removed from the pot into a good processor and blend till it’s slightly pasty.
- Leave your broth on low heat to keep it hot.
Making the toppings:
- Chop your shrimp and chicken and leave it whole if you want.
- Sauté your meats using butter and garlic.
- Sauté the paste you made from the broth remains using black seed oil or sesame oil. Also add chilli paste for heat.
- Soft boil your egg (6 mins cooking time)
Sauté greens in olive oil and add bacon jam for flavor.
Assembling the meal:
- Cook your ramen according to your liking. I prefer it slightly al dente.
- Place your cooked ramen noodles in a bowl.
- Add ample broth to the bowl
- Add your toppings
- Drizzle with a bit of siracha
- Top with cilantro
And that’s it! Enjoy your bowl of deliciousness.
