For the Ramen:
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth

  • 2 cups water

  • 200g ramen noodles

  • 200g prawns, peeled and deveined

  • 1 hard-boiled egg, halved

  • 1/2 cup snow peas, trimmed

  • 2 green onions, sliced

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 1-inch piece of ginger, grated

For Garnish:
  • Black sesame seeds

  • Additional green onions, sliced

  • Optional: chili flakes or oil for a spicy kick


Step 1: Prepare the Broth

In a large pot, combine the chicken or vegetable broth, water, soy sauce, sesame oil, minced garlic, and grated ginger. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

Step 2: Cook the Noodles

Add the ramen noodles to the simmering broth, cooking according to the package instructions until just tender. Remove the noodles with tongs, dividing them between two serving bowls.

Step 3: Cook the Prawns and Snow Peas

Increase the heat to medium-high and add the prawns to the broth. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the prawns are pink and opaque. Add the snow peas in the last minute of cooking to retain their crispness and vibrant color.

Step 4: Assemble the Ramen

Carefully ladle the hot broth, prawns, and snow peas over the noodles in each bowl. Place a halved hard-boiled egg into each bowl.

Step 5: Garnish and Serve

Sprinkle black sesame seeds and additional sliced green onions over the top of each bowl. For those who enjoy a bit of heat, a drizzle of chili oil or a sprinkle of chili flakes can add a pleasant warmth to the dish.

Chef's Notes:

  • Prawn Preparation: Ensure the prawns are thoroughly cleaned and deveined before cooking for the best taste and texture.

  • Egg Tip: For a perfectly soft-boiled egg, cook the egg for 6-7 minutes in boiling water, then immediately transfer it to ice water to stop the cooking process.

  • Broth Flavoring: Feel free to adjust the seasoning of the broth by adding more soy sauce, sesame oil, or a splash of fish sauce for deeper umami flavors.

  • Vegetable Variations: This ramen is versatile; feel free to add or substitute vegetables according to your preference or seasonality. Mushrooms, spinach, or bok choy make excellent additions.
