New Highs With My Lows

WTChinesebbAround lunch time today, I once again found myself craving Chinese food, however ordering up a pint of Spicy Ramen & Shrimp from Super China Panda Great Wall Garden House would have been way too hard. I needed food that required less work of me. And by “less work” I mean food that would take less than ten minutes to cook, would not require me to talk to anyone, and I could make with ingredients I already had in the house. Less work is good, and even better when it tastes good.

I made up my own white trash spicy ramen & shrimp called (you won’t believe it!)– Soiled Spicy Ramen & Shrimp. As it turns out, I REALLY dug it and I think it only took about 6 minutes to make.


  • 1 pack of 10¢ ramen noodles (discard the season packet, we’ll be adding enough sodium).
  • 5 thawed, frozen shrimp (the pre-cooked sort you find in bag in your grocer’s freezer).
  • 1 cup (or slightly less) of low sodium chicken stock.
  • 1 cup (or slightly less) of water.
  • Dash of low sodium soy sauce.
  • Swirl of sriracha sauce.
  • Dash of black pepper.



  1. Thaw shrimp under running water according to package directions and sit aside (I clipped the tails off in advance).
  2. Combine water and stock, bring to a boil and add ramen noodles.
  3. Cook for three minutes as directed.
  4. With about a minute left, add in shrimp to heat them through.
  5. Removed noodles from heat, drain and quickly return to pot so as to retain some of the liquid.
  6. Mix in soy sauce.
  7. Top with black pepper and sriracha sauce.
  8. Eat (don’t burn the top seven layers of your tongue off).

I’ve been thinking about making this ever since I saw some packs of ramen noodles in the back of the cupboard that were leftover from the Great (but brief) B-Man Ramen Gorge of Spring 2015. I can fully admit that this meal may be a new low in white man Chinese cooking, but I really dug it and will make it again for sure. My apologies to Chinese cooks worldwide.

Note: The Chinese characters above spell out “white trash.” Well, at least I hope they do, for all I know they say “DIE FAT WHITE CAPITALIST PIG MAN!!”
