Miso Ramen with Shrimp Recipe

By Marcus Samuelsson | August 31, 2012

Shrimp Miso Ramen

I love Japanese ramen and have been experimenting with ways to make the meal lighter by eliminating much of the sodium and adding teff noodles instead of ones traditionally made from white or buckwheat flour. Teff is a gluten-free grain used widely in Ethiopia to make injera, the sour flat bread served with every meal. Here I use white wine with the miso broth and add a good amount of spice and fresh corn to brighten the dish. This version calls for shrimp.

Traditional ramen broth takes hours and hours to make, but I’ve included a quick and easy way to make it at home.

When mixed with equal proportions of water, chickpea flour can be an egg-replacer for vegan recipes. Used to make pakoras and papadums prevalent in Indian cooking, this gluten-free flour is high in protein, making it a great base to this warm chickpea and tomato salad.

Yes, Chef Salsify Soup with Marinated Mushrooms

Salsify Soup

In the kitchen, sometimes the most unexpected ingredients yield the most flavorful results. In this Yes, Chef inspired recipe, the Asian-marinated mushrooms accentuate the Mediterranean root vegetable known as salsify. Toss in coriander and cumin with coconut milk and the dish is instantly elevated to a hearty and tasty meal. Finishing off with a spoonful of marinated mushrooms is the perfect ending to this aromatic bowl of salsify soup.

Yes, Chef Fish Tostadas

Tuna tostadas

Tostada

This easy to assemble and beautifully garnished fish tostada recipe comes inspired from Marcus’ memoir, in which his childhood years spent living next to the ocean resulted in memories filled with fresh seafood. A convenient tapas favorite like a tostada is festive party plate, especially with a kick of Mexican flavor. The tuna tostada here gets a modern twist from some pickled shallots and creamy texture with avocado garnish, all in convenient bite-sized portions.

This open-faced sandwich is a great meal. Splurge on a great loaf of whole-grain bread and top each slice with a piece of grilled salmon. I love the creamy flavors of avocado in contrast with the crunchy romaine and grilled onion. Weekday tip: make a few extra hard-boiled eggs to keep for snacks during the rest of the week.
