Hubbys Shrimp Noodle Soup

The first time my husband ever made this I thought he was crazy!  Why in the world would you put Ramen noodles and shrimp together.  When I think of Ramen noodles I think of my childhood and my brother, sister, and I playing Nintendo and eating it out of huge plastic cups like the ones you get at fast food chains.  My brother would always call dibs on the Iowa Hawkeys one!  I vividly remember the first time I saw someone eat Ramen out of a bowl and I was so confused.  I have no idea why we ate it out of a cup but for some reason it was so odd to me that someone would even consider using a bowl.  Anyhow, my husband surprised me on this one and to this day it is my favorite meal he makes.  Maybe because its the only one he makes but it is my favorite!!

  • 2 packages Oriental Ramen Noodles
  • 1 lb shrimp, uncooked
  • 1 broccoli floret
  • 1 package sliced mushrooms
  • 1 medium zucchini sliced or cut in half circles
  • 1 small onion
  • soy sauce, to taste
  • hoison sauce, to taste
  • sriracha, to taste
  • 2 tablespoon butter

Directions:  In a medium pan melt butter and saute onions and mushrooms until onions are soft.  I always add a little sriracha and hoison while I saute them!  Add shrimp and cook until pink.  In a large pot boil ramen noodles according to package.  When noodles are soft add broccoli and zucchini and cook for a couple minutes.  Finally add shrimp, mushrooms, and onions.  Add one packet oriental seasoning and add soy sauce, hoison, and sriracha to taste.

Cookers Note:  The best thing about this meal is you can use any veggies you have in the fridge and you can always substitute the shrimp for chicken or tofu.  I also love to top with fresh sprouts when I have them.
