Okay, how many of you ate ramen back in the day?! I’m raising my hand high! It was a super fast and easy way to satisfy my craving for soup on a cold day.

Key Ingredients to Make Seafood Ramen

  • SHRIMP – You can use fresh or frozen shrimp for this recipe. Be sure to peel and devein them first!
  • MUSHROOMS – Use sliced mushrooms. I like baby portobello best myself!
  • CARROT – Grate the carrot so it’s easier to cook and eat.
  • GARLIC – For added savory flavor, of course.
  • BROTH – I personally like using low-sodium broth, but you can use your preference.
  • GINGER – For a bit of bite that I just adore.
  • SOY SAUCE – I love the umami flavor of soy sauce too!
  • SESAME OIL – Nutty and earthy, you’ll only need 1 teaspoon.
  • OLIVE OIL – To sauté the mushrooms, carrot, and garlic before adding the broth.
  • RAMEN NOODLES – Use the noodles, ditch the seasoning packet!
  • GREEN ONIONS & CILANTRO – For your garnish.

Instructions to Make Shrimp Ramen

PREPARE THE VEGETABLES: Sauté the mushrooms and carrot in olive oil in a large pot until they start to soften. Add the garlic and cook (while you stir) for about 30 seconds.

INCORPORATE THE LIQUIDS: Add the broth, soy sauce, and sesame oil to the pot along with the ginger. Cover and bring the mixture to a boil.

ADD THE NOODLES AND SHRIMP: When the broth begins to boil, add the noodles and shrimp, cover, and allow to boil for several minutes.

Garnish your seafood ramen recipe with chopped green onions and cilantro and enjoy!

Spicy Shrimp Ramen Soup

And for all of you that like to spice things up…no problem! Just add your favorite hot sauce to your ramen soup recipe. Sriracha, Tabasco, or even red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper will do the trick.

This soup doesn’t make a lot of broth as seen in the pictures, so if you want more “soup,” double the broth/stock you use — as well as the grated ginger, soy sauce, and sesame oil.

You can also double the vegetables to add more bulk and flavor. There is plenty enough shrimp in the soup already that you can get away with not doubling it. This dish is so versatile — it’s one of the reasons why I believe it’s one of the best shrimp ramen recipes out there!

And if you don’t want to grate your own ginger, I like to buy these tubes of Stir-in Ginger Paste. So much easier!


Can I add frozen shrimp to ramen?

Absolutely! You can use fresh or frozen shrimp in this seafood ramen recipe. You’ll just have to make sure to thaw it overnight in the fridge before using it.

Can I add shrimp to instant ramen?

You technically could, as long as you cook the shrimp first. But, I have to say…my recipe for homemade seafood ramen is so much better than the packaged stuff, and it only takes 20 minutes to make!

Does shrimp ramen taste like shrimp?

You’ll be able to taste the shrimp in my homemade ramen soup recipe, but it’s not overly fishy. Packaged shrimp ramen definitely has a fishy taste to it, but most people say that it doesn’t really taste like seafood. My advice? Make it yourself instead!

How do you make seafood ramen taste better?

I find that my recipe tastes great as is. If you want to experiment and add in some extras, try using more soy sauce, added hot sauce, or more vegetables as described above. Some folks even like to add an egg to ramen, which in all honesty sounds super delicious!
