Shrimp Ramen Tips

What else can you add to shrimp ramen?

Sliced white, baby portobello or shiitake mushrooms are a great way to upgrade your ramen. Also consider frozen stir-fry veggies or edamame, chopped Swiss chard, sliced pea pods or any other produce-drawer finds. Add fresh ginger or garlic for a flavor boost. And to make a heartier dish, whisk in a beaten egg toward the end of cooking time, just as you would when making Egg Drop Soup.

What toppings can you put on shrimp ramen?

Halved or sliced soft-cooked egg is a pretty garnish. Freshly chopped cilantro, shredded carrot or julienned snap pea pods make great garnishes, too. Discover more secrets to great homemade soup.

How should you store leftover shrimp ramen?

Cool soup completely, then cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days. When reheating, add a little broth if needed because the ramen noodles soak up liquid as they sit in the fridge.
