Are you interested in trying spicy ramen noodles? Or are you looking to try new types of spicy ramen? There are plenty of ways to make this instant dish your own! Whether you're trying to figure out how to make things less spicy or you just want a new take on noodles, we've got three unique and delicious ways to make spicy Korean ramen.
If you don't already have spicy ramen noodles on hand, here are the noodles we used in each of the three recipes below. These are all interchangeable, so choose your level of spice wisely.
Our team tested each of these recipes in-house and absolutely loved them! We started with the spiciest recipe: the Super Spicy Ramen Fondue. Then we whipped up the Spicy Noodles and Tuna Mayo before moving on to our mildest recipe, Thai-Inspired Spicy Coconut Ramen. You can find each of these recipes below; why not follow along with the video and try them yourself?
If the heat of Samyang's 2X Spicy Hot Chicken Flavor Ramen is too much for you to handle on its own, consider taking the heat down a notch with some cheese and tomato flavors. You probably have most of these ingredients in your house already!
When we cooked this recipe up in-house, our team members who tasted it enjoyed the cheesy flavor and said it tasted like spicy pizza!
Combine the tomato juice and the water and bring to a boil. Then add the noodles and continue simmering for about four minutes.
Add the soup sauce of your 2X Spicy Hot Chicken Flavor Ramen.
Caution: if you have never had these ramen noodles before, we highly recommend not adding all of the sauce at once. Start with just a bit, taste test, and add more until you can safely consume it.
Add the dried toppings and mix together, then transfer to a bowl.
Combine cheese and milk in a small bowl, then microwave to melt or melt it on the stove. Stir immediately after removing it from the heat, until the cheese mix is gooey and fondue-like.
While the cheese is melting, you can prepare any fondue ingredients you have on hand. We used cherry tomatoes and broccoli, but anything goes! Once the cheese forms a fondue-like texture, set it aside.
With your gooey cheese on top of your noodles, get ready to fondue! Make sure to enjoy the cheese while it's still hot.
According to one of our taste testers, this tastes like spicy pizza! We'd recommend not mixing the cheese and noodles together until after you've used up most of your fondue ingredients.
We thought that of the three recipes provided in this article, this was the spiciest, especially when not combining the cheese with the noodles. But all in all, it was really delicious!
If the combination of tuna salad and spicy ramen sounds weird to you, we encourage you to try this tasty, creamy dish anyway! Inspired by YouTubers who love to create dynamic new spicy ramen recipes, this clever take on Samyang Fire Noodles will actually mellow out the spicy and add a mouthwatering creaminess to your ramen.
Our team members who tried this recipe enjoyed the creaminess of the tuna and noted it balanced out this milder Samyang dish perfectly.
Dice some of your garlic chives, but make sure to save a little for toppings at the end!
Next, finely dice up your onions. The finer, the better!
Once you've diced your veggies, combine them together in a bowl with the tuna.
Add three tablespoons of mayonnaise. You'll need this creamy texture later on, we promise; three is the magic number.
Mix well, adding paprika, salt, and pepper to taste. While we didn't add paprika in our video, we do think it adds a nice tang to the tuna!
The tuna mix adds even more of a calming contrast to the spicy ramen if it's chilled ahead of time, so we recommend doing this step a bit early and putting your tuna salad in the fridge for a bit.
Bring the water to a boil and add the Samyang Spicy Chicken Roasted Noodles. Boil for five minutes.
Before draining your noodles, be sure to save about three tablespoons of the water. You'll need this to keep your ramen noodles from sticking to each other!
Drain the rest of the water out and return the noodles to the pot. Add the water you saved and as much of the spicy sauce as you desire. The more you add, the spicier your ramen will be!
Time to combine your tuna with the noodles! We found it best to use a fork to plate our tuna.
Add some extra garlic chives to the side as a garnish; they taste great in the soup as well. Serve your spicy ramen up on a plate or in a bowl. Add as much chilled tuna salad as your heart desires, and get ready to enjoy!
Don't forget to add the seaweed and sesame packet that comes with this ramen though; it creates just the right contrast in texture. You can eat this ramen dish with chopsticks or with a fork! It's up to you.
If you're looking for a creative take on making your classic Nongshim Shin Ramyun noodles into an entirely different dish, then look no further! We use plenty of Thai-inspired ingredients to mellow out the heat and to incorporate plenty of Southeast Asian flavors into your bowl of instant noodles.
Our team members in-house really enjoyed this unique take on Shin Ramyun noodles. They noted that when made like this, the soup is hardly spicy but tastes wonderful regardless. They also found that the leftover broth could be used as a topping or a dip!
Season the chicken tender with salt and pepper first.
Add a bit of cooking sake (or dry sherry if you don't have any sake) and place it on a microwavable plate. Cover it with plastic wrap.
Set the microwave to medium or high (about 600 watts) and heat the chicken for one and a half to two minutes. Let the chicken sit until it cools down. After it's cooled down, use a fork to shred the chicken.
Cut the red onion into thin slices by slicing with the grain, or lengthwise. If you want your onion to taste more potent, you can slice against the grain, or widthwise. Both ways of slicing your onion will have an impact on how it tastes!
Next, slice your lemon. The recipe just calls for 1/8 of a lemon, but you can use as much zest as you like.
Finely chop the peanuts and cut the cilantro into pieces of about half an inch each.
Bring water to a boil on the stovetop. Add the ramen noodles, soup powder, and topping packet to cook for about four minutes.
Then, add the coconut milk and nam pla fish sauce and let simmer. Once it starts to boil again, turn off the heat.
In a bowl, plate the cooked noodles and soup. Top with chicken, red onion, cilantro, peanuts, lemon, and black pepper to taste.
You may want to squeeze some fresh lemon juice over your toppings for some zesty contrast with this creamy, slightly spicy soup. Any broth you have left over can also serve as a delicious sauce for a rice dish, or even as a soup of its own!
