This Easy Shrimp Ramen Soup is so much better than that packet of noodles!! Packed with vegetables, shrimp, and full of flavor!

I love quick and easy recipes! They are the backbone of Countryside Cravings! This shrimp ramen soup is definitely one of those quick and easy meals and it’s a reader favorite!

My other favorite quick and easy meals are Cheese Ravioli in Creamy Mushroom Sauce and Taco Pasta.

Ok, 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.

But have you ever read the back of the package??? YIKES!!

So, let’s ditch that seasoning packet since that’s where most of the bad stuff lives and beef it up with vegetables and shrimp!

Some more easy soup recipes to try: Easy Taco Soup, 30 Minute White Chicken Chili, and Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup.

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 or for a 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.

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!

  1. I always look for Ramen with rice noodles rather than wheat ones, and I also serve mine over chopped green parts of Napa Cabbage for crunch.

    This Shrimp Ramen Soup is so good! I used San-J Tamari Soy Sauce that I bought from Karman Foods. It’s absolutely flavorful! Best paired with either hot or cold barley tea.

  3. I just cooked this with your timings, (I added celery instead of mushrooms) and I am extremely impressed. Mine lacked a bit of zip, so I added Sriracha sauce…oh my! One of the best meals I have ever cooked! Thank you!

    I have made this for dinner a few times now and it is wonderful every time! Tonight we opted for a veggie ramen, so I added in some onion, a mix of spicy peppers, and some soft boiled eggs. We love it!

  5. I know you mention that the nutritional info is approximate, but standard ramen noodles of any brand would quadruple your carb count…and even that is on the low side. More like 50 grams of carbs. Otherwise all looks deelish.

    • Each nutrition generator gives different amounts and I wish they were more consistent! Hopefully, someday things will be a better/closer estimate!

    This was delicious and easy to make! I added diced celery, sliced leeks, and a diced orange pepper to the carrot/ mushroom mix. Tasted healthy! The shrimp I added ended up being “tough”, so next time maybe I’ll add uncooked shrimp?

    Reply
    • Yes, the shrimp is supposed to go into the soup raw. I changed that in the recipe card to be more clear. Thank you! I am so glad you liked the soup!

    • It was calculated with full sodium broth and soy sauce. Updated the nutrition using lower sodium broth and soy sauce. Hope that helps!

  9. 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.
