Here is a list of garnishes and condiments that I use not only for ramen at home, but for a whole variety of other dishes. Once you have these in your larder, you will be amazed to see how many creative ways you can incorporate them into your meals. Condiment recipes will be on the main blog page and much more coming soon!
The Daley Trade Fresh Ramen Noodles: No ramen is complete without noodles! Whether you’re making your own broth or you’re using a seasoning packet from some store bought ramen, using our fresh alkaline noodles is far superior to dried. The springy, chewy texture and the fresh flavor will make your plain old noodle soup into something spectacular. Ditch those old dry noodles and use them for furikake seasoning! Save those flavor packets and use them with our fresh ramen noodles! (recipes coming soon)
Tare: The ultimate multi-purpose sauce, absolutely essential to season your ramen broth with. Use it as a Japanese bbq sauce for grilling meats and veggies. Use it as a marinade, stir-fry sauce, season rice with it or even mix some with mayo and make an incredible spread.
Pork fat back: The incredible fatty, meaty protein of the dish is braised in the broth so it has all the flavors of the charred aromatics and smoky bones. This can be sliced thin and will almost melt back into the hot broth, or cut it into larger pieces and crisp it up in a pan like bacon.
Crunchy ramen furikake seasoning: Using a boring old packet of dried Ramen noodles (save the flavor packet!) you can make an awesome crunchy, salty, spicy, umami packed topping. This can be used to sprinkle on top of not only ramen, but you can use it on rice, veggies, eggs, popcorn, or whatever else you want to add a flavorful punch and crispy texture to!
Sliced green onions: Fresh, light and bright. Green onions are a must when finishing ramen. They add complexity and another layer of flavor to your dish.
Marinated mushrooms: Delicious and beefy, these add amazing depth, umami and wonderful texture to any dish. They also make a great meat substitute!
6 Min. soft boiled egg: A classic ramen accompaniment. Not only is it easy to make, it’s incredibly delicious!
Smoked pork chili oil: Instead of throwing away that flavorful fat, save it and make an amazing chili oil out of it! Use it to spice up your ramen and any other dishes you want to give a fatty and spicy kick to.
Fermented bok choy: A deliciously crunchy, salty, half sour piece of bok choy to contrast the soft textures and meaty flavors of the ramen. Chop them up to add to rice dishes and stir-frys as well.
