Recipe Notes

  1. You can use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. 
  2. Start with 2 tablespoons sriracha, this makes the ramen noodle soup pretty spicy. However, if you would like to have it even spicier, add some more sriracha right before serving. 
  3. If you would like to make this spicy ramen recipe vegetarian, swipe chicken broth for vegetable stock and use tofu or bokchoy instead of shrimp.
  4. If you're going to have leftovers, make the noodles separately according to the instructions on the package and divide it between four bowls. Then fill the bowls with the soup base, shrimp and mushrooms.
