Ingredients
  

  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 pound shrimp
  • 3 teaspoons chili powder, divided
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced (or ½ small yellow onion)
  • 1 inch fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 8 cups chicken broth (I like to use low sodium)
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 4-5 squares ramen noodles, about 12-15 ounces (discard any seasoning packet)
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 4 soft or hard boiled eggs (cooking directions in notes)

Optional garnishes:

  • Lime wedges, shredded carrots, sliced green onions, sesame seeds, hoison sauce

Instructions
 

  • Heat 1 tablespoon sesame oil in large pot over medium heat. Add shrimp and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon chili powder. Cook until firm and pink, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove the shrimp from the pot and set aside. Add an additional tablespoon of sesame oil and shallots to the pot. Cook for 3-5 minutes until translucent. Add the ginger and garlic and cook another minute.
  • Add in the broth, lime juice, soy sauce, and 1-2 teaspoons of chili powder (depending on how spicy you want the ramen). Simmer for about 10 minutes.
  • Bring to a boil then add the noodles and spinach. Cook until the noodles are soft, about 3-4 minutes. Mix the shrimp in with the noodles and broth.
  • Ladle into bowls and serve with boiled eggs, lime wedges, shredded carrots, green onions, sesame seeds, and hoison sacue to add a touch of sweet. Enjoy!

Notes

Soft or hard boiled eggs: Bring a small pot of water to a boil then carefully add the eggs. Boil the eggs for 6 minutes for soft yolks and 10 minutes for hard yolks. Once done, immediately transfer to an ice bath to cool.
