Ramen HD ~ on-the-go mini meal: Curry fish noodle dish

IMG_3417Sometimes, I’m not up to a whole big production to make a meal. What about you?

It’s no secret Ramen is unofficially labeled as the college student and budget-friendly mini meal in the west. The little almost-ready-made package of noodles and seasoning has probably been nestled amidst other items on your kitchen cupboard in some season of life. Hopefully, this little recipe can lend a hand in getting creative while preparing your next ramen dish. Feel free to share any creative ways you upgrade your Ramen soups. I use the Oriental or Chili flavours; the shrimp one has chicken powder in it so that doesn’t work for me. Do you have any favorite flavours?

I’m no nutritionist, and not in a position to account for the nutritious content of snack ramen. What I do know is they come in handy for times when you feel for a warm mini meal, that’s a little more filling than a large cup of tea.

Here’s a very easy-to-do method for making 3 small bowls of curry fish ramen. This is nice enjoyed as a brunch, or on those light rainy days that come with a cool breeze.

It takes just over 3 minutes to prepare, from start to finish, and doesn’t involve much washing-up after.



1 pack of chili ramen

1 small steak or chunk of fish (marlin, bonito, tuna, red snapper.)

1/4 diced onion

Fresh herbs (include red pepper in the mix, for added zing.)

Spices (curry, masala, hint of geera, black pepper)

1/2 glove ground garlic


  • Finely slice fresh herbs and 1/4 onion. Pour 1/2 cup of water into small pot set at medium heat.
  • Place pre-seasoned (curry-spiced) fish into simmering water. Add a sprinkle of salt, and let gently boil.
  • Open ramen package, remove seasoning kit for later use. Crunch noodles, and add them to pot when fish is medium to tender.
  • Move swiftly from this point. Add spices, onion and garlic. For extra flavour, place a stalk of fresh thyme in the mix. Add contents to seasoning kit/packet now. Stir.
  • Remove pot from heat when noodles are medium softness (not too soft and pappy.)
  • Let cool in a bowl, and enjoy with chopsticks and a spoon.
