Spicy Oxtail Ramen

This is the first time I’ve created broth using a pressure cooker. Not going to lie, I’ve always found them a bit scary and avoided using mine. My pressure cooker has sat on a dusty shelf for long enough and I decided it was time to get over my fear. And it makes life so […]

Lunch on the Go Pot Ramen

My husband, Tim, suggested I try making my own version of the infamous and much hated convenience food, the Pot Noodle. He wanted to be able to take what he started referring to as a ‘Pot Ramen’ to work and just pour boiling water on before eating. This is the recipe I created for him. […]

Spicy Lobster Ramen with chipotle soy sauce and chilli oil

I have exclaimed many times my love of Shoryu Ramen and upon hearing that they created a collaborative menu with Sakagura, a recently opened Japanese restaurant and sake cellar in London, I was intrigued to see a spicy lobster ramen on their menu. I knew I had to try to make my own. This was […]

Healthy January Salmon Miso Ramen with courgette noodles

I thought for January it would be good to create a healthier, lighter ramen recipe to detox the body after the indulgence of Christmas. Also, as I got a spiralizer attachment for my Kitchenaid artisan mixer for Christmas, I was keen to try vegetable noodles in ramen. The spiralizer is fast becoming my favourite kitchen […]

Hallowe’en Pumpkin Ramen

I love this time of year, with its burnt orange and brown hues, and pumpkins and witches adorning shops and houses in readiness for Hallowe’en. I have always loved decorating the house and doing a special meal, which goes back to Hallowe’en teas my Mum made when my brother and I were little. Last year […]

Curry Ramen with Roast Chicken and Turmeric

The first recipe I made for my blog was a curry ramen recipe, inspired by the dish I first tried at Shoryu Ramen in Regent Street. Find the recipe here. Since then, I have returned to Shoryu and tried their curry ramen dish again and decided to make a new curry ramen with a more […]

Spicy Laoganma Ramen with Chilli Fried Pork

This dish came about from trying a spicy ramen last weekend in Sakura Japanese restaurant in Southsea (see my review for the restaurant here). The broth was really meaty and spicy, but not eye-wateringly so and it got me wondering what sort of chilli had been added to give it such a wonderful flavour without […]

Prawn Thai Green Curry Fusion Ramen

Thai green curry was the first proper oriental meal I cooked on my own, when I was about 13. I found a Blue Dragon kit in a shop and had never had a Thai curry before and thought the kit, with its green curry paste, fish sauce and lime leaves looked very exotic. Since then […]

Fiery Kimchi Seafood Ramen

Fiery Kimchi Seafood Ramen This was a recipe inspired by the version of this dish that Shoryu have on their menu, as my husband had it at the Regent Street restaurant and insisted I had a go at making my own version. Kimchi is a Korean pickle made with a Chinese cabbage and has a […]

Springtime Coconut Tamarind Ramen with Kaffir Lime

I love the subtle creamy flavour of coconut milk mixed with the tang of kaffir lime leaves in Thai curries, so I thought recreating this pairing in a ramen would make a nice light broth for springtime. It would be perfect for the Easter period, after having had a big roast on Easter Sunday. Lime […]
