Shrimp Sesame Noodles
In memory of the inventor of ramen noodles passing away this week, I suggest a gourmet twist on ramen:
In a quart freezer bag put:
1 block shrimp flavored ramen with 1/4 of the seasoning packet added
2 Tbl dried diced carrots
2 Tbl dried onions
pinch of red pepper flakes
1 foil pouch of shrimp
1-2 tsp sesame oil in a leak proof container
Add about 1 1/2 cups boiling water to the ramen bag. Push air out, seal well and mix by gently shaking and rolling the bag, till the ramen starts to just soften. Put the bag in a cozy for 10 minutes, tucking the shrimp pouch underneath, to warm it up.
Opening one corner a bit, drain off the water, add in the shrimp, and toss with the sesame oil.
Serves 1-2, depending on how hungry you are.
Note: By using only 1/4 of the seasoning packet, you keep the sodium levels at a decent rate, yet still get some of the flavor. If one desires, they can add more seasoning, or keep the broth and have it as a ramen bowl.
