Momofuku’s Ginger Scallion Noodles

momofuku's ginger scallion noodles

Remember yesterday’s post? I know I do…I couldn’t keep my mind off Momofuku and those ginger scallion noodles! After a quickie Google search (did you know there’s a recipe button on the side bar now? :) on ginger scallion noodles, I found so many recipes and tons of rave reviews for the ginger scallion sauce. I knew I just had to make it! It’s one of those love-at-first-sight-if-I-don’t-eat-this-I-will-not-eat-anything-else recipes, plus I had pretty bad noodle cravings that day. So I hopped into my car, and drove my butt to the nearest Asian market just to buy ramen noodles so that everything would turn out perfect.

Unless you are immune to onions or own a pair of onion goggles, this recipe is a breeze! If you are like me, take mini breaks while chopping the scallions. I took 15 minute breaks and indulge in a gigantic bag of Funyuns. Yes, she chopped her own onions for once and it impressed him :)

According to David Chang (the mastermind behind Momofuku), you can add anything else to your liking. Next time (oh, there will be many!!), I want to add pan seared salmon/scallops, grilled chicken, or oven roasted shrimp to the noodles. Already drooling just thinking about it! If you love the taste of fresh ginger, then you are going to love these noodles!

Here’s what you’ll need to make your very own bowl of yummy ginger scallion noodles…

INGREDIENTS: ramen noodles, ginger, scallions, sherry vinegar, soy sauce, grape seed oil, and salt

Make the ginger scallion sauce ahead of time…

STEP 1: finely dice the scallions and ginger

STEP 2: put the ginger and scallions in a bowl and add sherry vinegar, soy sauce, grape seed oil, and salt

STEP 3: mix well and set aside for 15-20 minutes prior to serving

Now that the sauce is out of the way, boil your ramen noodles…

my favorite brand of ramen noodles

just yummy! :)

STEP 4: boil ramen noodles according to the package; drain and set aside

STEP 5: toss the ramen noodles and ginger scallion sauce in a large bowl

STEP 6: serve. eat. seconds. nap. :)

KITCHEN TIP:

  • Do make the ginger scallion sauce in advance. The more time it has to marinate, the better!
  • Do make extra sauce, because you’ll want to eat it with everything.
  • Do not use that processed packaged ramen stuff you ate in college!!
  • Do use fresh ramen noodles, if you’re in a pinch and can’t find any, you can use thin spaghetti noodles.
  • Do not bother making leftovers because ramen noodles taste best when it’s just made. That’s why you need to make extra sauce when you’re craving this the next day.
