Soft-boiled Ramen Egg (Ajitama) 12 recipes

The most quintessential ramen topping is 'ajitama,' or seasoned soft-boiled eggs. They're made by steeping some eggs with deliciously soft-set yolks in a soy sauce-based mixture that gives them a punch of flavor. They're widely available in the chilled sections of Japanese supermarkets and are often displayed right next to ramen noodles. With a few practice runs and taste tests, you'll be able to adjust the cooking time to get that perfect creamy egg of your dreams.
