Dive into this cheesy, seafood-infused delight! A bowl of pure comfort awaits. #SeafoodSensation 🧀🍜🦐 Creamy ramyun with shrimp, cheese, and more – a delightful twist on a classic favourite.
Today, let’s talk about a simple kitchen hack that transforms an ordinary pack of Shin Ramyun into a hearty, creamy delight. I learned this trick from my daughter, who has a knack for turning everyday instant noodles into something extraordinary. By adding a few key ingredients like cream, cheese, eggs, spring onions, and succulent prawns, you can turn your instant meal into a dinner that looks and tastes like a culinary masterpiece.
Before we dive into the details, let’s briefly introduce Shin Ramyun for those who might not be familiar with it. This popular instant noodle brand hails from South Korea and has been satisfying taste buds since October 1986. It’s not just a Korean favourite; it’s an international sensation, exported to over 100 countries and holding the title of the best-selling instant noodle brand in South Korea. In fact, it accounts for a whopping one-quarter of the Korean instant noodle market. Shin Ramyun is renowned for its spicy kick and comes in various varieties, including the original, Shin Ramyun Black, Super Spicy, and a special shrimp flavour available exclusively in China. Each pack typically contains noodles, a flavouring powder (soup base), and a packet of vegetable flakes. For our recipe today, we’re sticking with the original flavour.
Now, let’s get back to the delicious transformation of our instant noodles. Most of the ingredients you need are probably already in your pantry, making this a quick and easy dinner option. Instant ramen or noodles are like a guilty pleasure for many Asians, myself included. But sometimes, you crave a little more substance than what’s inside that humble packet. That’s where our dish today comes into play.
Preparing this delightful meal is a breeze, and the prawns cook up quickly, ensuring a fast and satisfying dinner. In just about five minutes, you’ll have a steaming bowl of creamy ramyun on your dining table, ready to warm your heart and satisfy your taste buds. So why settle for plain instant noodles when you can elevate them to new heights with this Cheese and Shrimp Ramyun hack? It’s a simple yet satisfying dinner option that adds a touch of homemade goodness to your day. Give it a try, and you’ll see that sometimes, a little creativity in the kitchen can turn a quick meal into a memorable dining experience.
In a pot, bring 1 2/3 cups of water to a boil. Add the shrimps and allow them to cook for about 2-3 minutes until they turn pink and opaque. Remove the shrimps from the boiling water, drain them, and set them aside.
In the same pot with the shrimp-infused water, add the Shin Ramyun noodles. Allow them to cook for about 3 minutes or until they become tender, stirring occasionally. The noodles will absorb the delicious shrimp essence as they cook.
After about 3 minutes, reduce the heat to medium-low and add the cream to the pot. Stir it into the noodles and broth until it’s well combined. Cook for 1 more minute.
Place noodles together with the soup in a bowl, top it with the cheese immediately so it melts with the residual heat.
Place the soft-boiled egg halves and the boiled shrimps then garnish with chopped spring onions.
