Ramen noodles stir fry

Sometimes, nothing hits the spot better than noodles!. This ramen noodles stir-fry combines tender, juicy shrimps with loads of vegetables. This version has more veggies than the average noodle stir fry and of course lots of flavor and doesn’t require expert knowledge to do it right.

We all live busy lives and sometimes snappy, quick and easy to cook meal is virtually the order of the day in various homes. For us, Instant noodles is one of the to-go meals that we often have in our pantry, however, it can become boring when cooked plainly every time. I see no reason why you have to settle for a boring noodle each time when you can easily elevate it in little time.

Before you ask, I know most of us feel uncomfortable with the Msg-laden seasoning packets that come with the ramen noodles. I feel the same way as well, so, I always toss away the seasoning packets, and I use my own msg free seasoning powder.

How to make Instant Noodles Recipe

Noodles are usually cooked in boiling water, with seasoning and sometimes with cooking oil. Once noodles are cooked, remove them from heat and you can either serve them immediately or take it to the next level by tossing in some veggies and protein to make a wholesome meal.  

To prepare the Shrimps

  • Shrimps – Deveined and cleaned
  • Salt – to taste 
  • Black pepper – to taste

To prepare the vegetables

  • Oil – I used Olive oil, however, any neutral to mild-tasting oil will work just fine
  • Onion – Any variety of onion will work perfectly well: Yellow, white or red
  • Carrots – I used some grated carrots. Not for the crunch but for some added subtle sweetness
  • Mushrooms – I used the white button mushroom. They are meaty and they add an earthy touch to the meal.
  • Bell peppers – Cut into small cubes
  • Seasoning powder – (the seasoning packet that came with the noodle pack)
  • Salt (optional) – You might not need this if you use the seasoning packets that came with the noodle pack.

To prepare the Instant noodles

  • Noodles – 2 packs of instant noodles of your choice
  • Water – Enough water to cover the whole noodles during the boiling process. Don’t worry, the excess water will be drained off.

To make the noodles stir fry

Simply combine the vegetables, Shrimps, and noodles.

Difference between Instant noodles and Pasta

Studies show Instant noodles originated from China: Instant noodle is an unconventional type of noodle, it is tasty and delicious very different from the regular pasta noodles.  Instant noodles cook within a short period of time compared to pasta and texture-wise they are silky, smooth, yet chewy and firm to bite and of course, they are more delicate than pasta

What else can I use in this dish?

Instant noodles are very versatile, it’s a time for you to get creative and use up any vegetables begging to be used in your crisper. However, you don’t want to ruin the noodls by getting too ambitious with your veggie choices.


  • Peas
  • Sweet Corn
  • Green beans


  • Chicken
  • Beef
  • Pork

What type of instant noodle do I use?

You can use any brand will work as long as it’s not the pre-seasoned pack.


  • Just like any stir-frying recipe, it’s important to have all of the ingredients prepped; have all of the veggies cut up and ready to be added in the stir-fry.
  • Likewise, the liquids and the seasonings should be pre-measured, set aside, and ready to go.
  • Always stir-fry over high heat so to keep everything crisp, tender, and not mushy.
  • You can pick out the veggies of your choosing and hit a home run with this ramen noodles stir fry
  • You might not need to add any salt if you choose to use the seasoning packet that comes with the noodles.
