So how easy is the recipe?
So how easy is the recipe? I would say it is one of the most easiest recipes I have done that is considered home cooked. You basically cook all the ingredients at the same time.

Once everything is done, you toss it all together in a bowl. That’s it! A budget-friendly meal that is quickly done in under 20 minutes.

- 1 12 oz Peeled and deveined small shrimp You can go with 1 lb of peeled and deveined med-large shrimp ($7-$8) for larger shrimp
- 4 packs Ramen Noodles
- 2 tbsp Soy Sauce, Low-Sodium
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter
- 2 cups 3 Pepper and Onion Blend (Frozen)
- pepper to taste No need to add extra salt due to the broth and soy sauce being added
- 6 cups chicken stock or broth
- If shrimp are frozen, place the bag into the sink to allow to thaw. If you are crunched for time, open bag of frozen shrimp and pour into a strainer. Run COLD water over the shrimp to help separate them and set aside until ready to cook.
- Pour the chicken stock (broth) into a large pot and bring to a boil.
- Once the chicken stock comes to a boil, add the ramen noodles. Cook for about 5-6 minutes or until the ramen noodles have become soft and stretchy. Remove from heat and drain. Lightly rinse of the ramen noodles with water.
- While you are bringing the chicken stock to a boil, prepare the veggies. Place 1 tbsp of butter into a large skillet. Melt the butter on medium heat.
- Once the butter is melted, add the 3 Peppers and Onion blend to the skillet. Stir occasionally to make sure all the veggies are cooking evenly. Saute for about 5 minutes or until the veggies are tender and the onions are beginning to become translucent.
- Now add the shrimp to the veggie mixture. Stir in the shrimp and cook for another 3 minutes or until the shrimp are fully cooked-pink in color. Add soy sauce and stir to make sure veggies and shrimp are mixed well in soy sauce. Cook for another 1-2 minutes, and remove from heat. You don't want to overcook the shrimp because they will become rubbery in texture.
- Place about 1 cup of the cooked ramen noodles into a bowl and top with about 1/4 of the shrimp and veggie mixture. Enjoy!
This recipe can be altered! Not sure about the shrimp? Substitute for chicken or even beef. You can also add a little spice to this dish by adding crushed red peppers during the soy sauce addition step. The options are endless with this quick and easy ramen shrimp bowls!
