Seafood Miso Ramen

There is a well-known shop in Sapporo called Ajinokaryu, right at the beginning of Sapporo’s famous Ramen Yokocho, a street of about a dozen ramen shops all packed into one short block. I’m not sure if it’s the taste, the photos of famous celebrities that have eaten there, or just the position as the first shop, but they always have a line. Their most popular bowl is covered with crab, scallops, and whatever else is in season. You can make a similar bowl by either preparing your own seafood mix from scratch or finding a good one at your local grocery store.

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup Strong Miso Tare with Aka Miso
  • 5 cups any type clear soup
  • 1⅓ pounds fresh noodles such as Chukasuimen
  • 1 pound mixed seafood scallop, shrimp, crab, squid, etc.,
  • cooked and sliced
  • Negi

Instructions

  • With all your ingredients ready to go, bring a large pot of water to a boil over medium-high heat.
  • Heat your ramen bowls by filling them halfway with hot water. The bowls don’t need to be scalding, but they should be hot to the touch. Dump out the hot water and dry the bowls with some paper towels or a clean towel.
  • Put the tare and soup in a medium saucepan. Mix and bring to a simmer over low heat.
  • Cook the noodles in the large pot of boiling water. Ramen that has been cut to a standard thickness (about 1 mm) will cook in 1 to 2 minutes.
  • About 30 seconds before the noodles are finished cooking, ladle the soup into the ramen bowls.
  • Drain the noodles, taking care to shake off as much excess water as you can. Carefully place some noodles in each bowl of soup, keeping them tidy.
  • Place the seafood and a sprinkle of negi neatly on the ramen. The amount of seafood you use is up to you. Serve immediately.

Notes

Anywhere you go along the coast of Hokkaido, you’ll see seafood. Both small and large fishing towns on this northern island bring in much of Japan’s ocean bounty. This abundance makes its way into the country’s cuisine, especially the ramen.

Unveiling the ocean’s bounty in a single bowl – seafood miso ramen.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound assorted seafood (shrimp, mussels, clams, and fish fillets)
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup white miso paste
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

  • 2 cups chopped bok choy
  • 2 cups cooked ramen noodles
  • Sliced green onions, for garnish
  • Nori sheets, for garnish
  • Soft-boiled eggs, for topping (optional)

Instructions:

  • Set your Instant Pot to the sauté function and heat the sesame oil. Add minced garlic and grated ginger, sautéing for about a minute until fragrant.
  • Add the sliced shiitake mushrooms to the pot and cook for another 2-3 minutes until they begin to soften.
  • Stir in the white miso paste and soy sauce, mixing until well combined.
  • Pour in the chicken or vegetable broth, and then add the assorted seafood to the Instant Pot.
  • Seal the Instant Pot with the lid and set it to the “Pressure Cook” function on high for 2 minutes.

  • To serve, ladle the seafood miso broth with mushrooms and bok choy over a portion of cooked ramen noodles in each bowl.
  • Garnish your Seafood Miso Ramen with sliced green onions, torn nori sheets, and, if desired, soft-boiled eggs.

Cooking Tips

Tips and Tricks for the Best Results:

  • Saute for Flavor: Don’t skip the sauté step. It builds the foundation of flavor with garlic, ginger, and mushrooms. It’s worth the extra few minutes.
  • Quick Pressure Release: Be cautious with seafood—overcooking it can lead to a rubbery texture. Use the quick-release function as soon as the pressure cooking cycle is complete.
  • Miso Dissolving: Ensure the miso paste is thoroughly dissolved in the broth to prevent clumps. A separate bowl with a bit of warm broth for dissolving works wonders.

Common Mistakes to Avoid:

  • Overcooking Seafood: Seafood cooks rapidly, especially under pressure. Keep a close eye on the timer to avoid overcooking and maintain that delightful tenderness.
  • Not Using Fresh Seafood: Quality seafood is crucial. Opt for the freshest seafood available to enhance the overall taste and texture.
  • Adding Delicate Ingredients Early: Avoid adding delicate ingredients like bok choy at the beginning. They should be added after pressure cooking to retain their vibrant color and crunch.
