My kids absolutely loved this soup and I love that they are NOT getting their daily allowance of sodium in one bowl since we are making this semi-homemade! And honestly, I think this tastes a whole lot better than that seasoning packet and it’s so much more satisfying!

It’s loaded with shrimp, vegetables, and the broth is packed with flavor. It’s the perfect bowl of soup for a chilly day. It’s a perfect quick lunch or dinner.

Spicy Shrimp Ramen Noodle Soup

And for all of you that like to spice things up…….no problem! Just add your favorite hot sauce to your bowl of soup like 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, grated ginger, soy sauce, and sesame oil. You can also double the vegetables to add more bulk and flavor. There is plenty of shrimp in the soup already that you can get away with not doubling it.

    This sounds so good! Ramen is an art form in Japan, and I think you might give the masters a run for their money!

    Growing up in Rhode Island within walking distance of Rocky Point Park, we always got take out chowder from the Shore Dinner Hall the one that hung out over the river. That was a red broth chowder but definitely NOT Manhattan. It was basically Rhode Island clear broth chowder with, I think, tomato puree and paprika to color the broth red. I loved it because I didn”t like the looks of regular clear broth chowder. I think that you can still get it at the Rocky Point Chowder house that sets up in the Ann & Hope parking lot in Warwick. I now live in New Hampshire so I don”t get to eat it much anymore, but that was always my favorite chowder.
