Instant & Simple Tom Yum Goong Ramen

Instant & Simple Tom Yum Goong Ramen

Using "Maru-chan Seimen Soy Sauce Flavor" noodles, I was easily able to make tom yum goong noodles. And it's pretty close to the flavor from a restaurant that I love.

Ingredients: serves 1

Maru-chan Seimen Soy Sauce Flavor Noodles
1 package
Frozen shrimp
5 to 10 pieces (depends on the size)
Tomato
1/2 to 1
Bean sprouts
1/3 packet
King oyster mushrooms
1 small
Cilantro
to taste
Water
600 ml
Tom yum paste
10 g
Fish sauce
1 tablespoon
Lemon juice
2 tablespoons

Steps

1. Put water in a pot and heat. Cut the mushrooms, tomato, and coriander into bite-size pieces. Defrost the shrimp. Rub sake and salt/pepper (not listed) and set aside.
2. Once the water has come to a boil, add the noodles (takes about 3 minutes). Once the noodles have loosened, add mushrooms, then after a little while, add shrimp and boil.
3. Before stopping the heat, add the tom yum paste and soup packet. Be sure they dissolve.
4. Stop the heat and add the fish sauce and lemon juice. Transfer to a serving dish and top with tomato and cilantro and it's complete.

Story Behind this Recipe

I love tom yum goong noodles.
The same as with khao soi, I tried recreating it using instant ramen.
In the original soup, it uses chicken extract with the richness of ginger and garlic. Just using these ingredients I was able to create a restaurant-like flavor.
