I find the most food inspiration when someone else cooks for me. That’s why I love going to my friend Leslie’s house. She’s beyond confident in the kitchen and she always comes up with such amazing combinations out of the most modest ingredients. It feels like a real treat; she makes me always feel welcome. She also introduced me to the hot smoked sockeye salmon from Trader Joe’s and I’m forever grateful.
She made me smoked salmon ramen back in December and I was instantly hooked. It takes a tiny bit of finesse to get the egg just right but on my second attempt, it was absolute perfection.
Just a few additions can really enhance a package of ramen. Spinach, smoked salmon, a little bit of sea kelp seasoning (or furikake if you have it) and a runny egg makes for a wonderfully quick meal– perfect for Mondays! You’re just three minutes away from deliciousness. Promise me you’ll add sriracha?
