Spicy Shrimp Ramen

"I love shrimp flavored ramen and just shrimp period. I was looking for something quick so of course I reached for the ramen but then realized I had a few pieces of shrimp left in a bag from a dinner the night before. So I decided to try and make a "shrimp pasta" and it turned out so good! Note: when I made this I just added the seasoning to my taste so im going to try my best to put it in measurements."

  1. This spicy shrimp ramen turned out to be bland. Adding Sirachi made it "hotter", but did nothing for the flavor.
  2. I've made this a bunch of times, since I had quite a bit of genuine Tony Chachere's creole seasoning to use up. I also had genuine Texas Pete hot sauce too. But my noodles were "Top Ramen" (Nissin) brand, not Maruchan. This is pretty tasty stuff, but since I usually find the seasoning packet alone to be a little too spicy (meaning seasoned, not hot), this was even more so. I might suggest cutting down on the spices here - I know it's suggested that these are approximations anyway. At first I used 20-to-30 count shrimp, but they were already cooked (pink), so I then switched to larger 16-to-20 count uncooked shrimp, for more shrimp goodness. I also drained various amounts of water from the soup; I think I prefer leaving more than the 1/4 cup mentioned in the recipe. But it also occurs to me that this might be good after having been totally drained. I also think that multiplying this recipe might make a nice family-size dish. All in all, this is a quick and easy and tasty recipe; shame I never thought of anything like this when I began eating shrimp-flavored ramen decades ago!
