Spicy Shrimp Ramen Noodles

There’s nothing quite as comforting as a warm bowl of savory ramen. Each sip of flavorful hot broth, with tender noodles, is like a hug for your tastebuds. I love to prepare ramen noodle soups for an easy dinner that still has that delightful homemade taste.

We have an excellent Slow Cooker Chicken Ramen recipe and a (new!) Spicy Vegan Ramen that I make often. But, if I had to choose just one, my favorite is this Spicy Shrimp Ramen. It offers such bold and intricate flavors from the perfect combination of bacon, shrimp, miso, and mushrooms. Plus those luxurious 7-minute soft boiled eggs. Mmmmm…

Add a combination of your favorite cooked and cold extra toppings to create a unique and satisfying ramen dish!

To make the Shrimp Ramen noodle soup, first set a large 6-8 quart saucepot over medium heat on the stove. Add the bacon and fry for a few minutes to release the pork fat. Then add in the onion, ginger, and garlic. Sauté, stirring regularly, for 5-6 minutes.

Cover and simmer the soup for 30 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low if needed.

Use a skimmer to scoop out all of the vegetables. Separate out the mushrooms and bacon to place back in the soup pot, but discard the onions, ginger, and garlic cloves.

Add the mushrooms and bacon back to the pot.

Perfect Ramen Eggs

Personally, no ramen is complete without a perfectly soft boiled egg nestled into the soup.

Here’s our foolproof secret method for how to make the best 7 Minute Ramen Eggs!

  1. As the vegetable broth with aromatics is simmering, set the second pot of water on the stovetop. Bring to a boil.
  2. Gently lower 4 large eggs into the water. Boil for exactly 7 minutes.
  3. Then scoop out and place in a bowl of ice water to cool.
  4. Peel (check out the easy way to peel eggs), halve the eggs, and add to the finished ramen bowls.

Additional Suggestions for Shrimp Ramen Toppings

Feel free to add all kinds of goodies to your ramen! Here are just a few of our favorite extra toppings:

  • Seared tofu – Use extra-firm tofu. First, use paper towels to press out as much moisture as possible. Slice into thin pieces. Add a bit of oil to a hot skillet over medium heat, and quickly sear the tofu for one or two minutes on each side.
  • Seared bok choy – If you can, you should use baby bok choy. Halve the bok choy and place cut-side down on a hot skillet to sear.
  • Fresh veggies – Balance the spicy and deep umami flavors by adding your favorite cold vegetables to the ramen bowls. A few ideas for toppings include sweet corn kernels (steamed and cooled), sliced scallions, sliced jalapenos (seeded for less heat), shaved carrots.
  • Etc – Fun add-ins like pickled vegetables and crunchy fried onions are just a few ways to add some great texture and flavor to your Shrimp Ramen.

How to Store Homemade Spicy Shrimp Ramen

If possible you want to store the Shrimp Ramen Noodle soup separately from the toppings. Transfer the cooled ramen to an airtight container and keep it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Store any cooked extras, like tofu, bok choy, and/or eggs, together in another sealed container. And keep the fresh prepped goodies such as corn and sliced veggies in another dish with a lid in the fridge.
