Norwegian Ramen (with Surgeon General’s Warning)

Submitted By: The Noodle Family

Submitted From: California, USA

Mr. Noodlenose suggests that you use only as much seasoning as needed, then add finely sliced fresh vegetables and fishballs to your lovely snack. Fishballs can be found canned in American groceries. They are often m manufactured in Norway and are the seafood equivalent of our beloved frankfurter. They consist primarily of worms that live between the vertebrae of codfish. Japanese and Taiwanese fishballs can always be discovered in the frozen foods section of Asian foodstores. The Japanese also produce something called "fish cake". This is the same material in a prettier form. Fish cake is usually colored light red on one side. When sliced and laid atop your instant noodles, these elegant red-white leaves of fish furter will draw plaudits (or obits) from your discerning frat brothers.

Note: According to Mrs. Noodletoes, the very deadly part of the instant noodle kit is the unassuming little packet of salt/seasoning/preservatives/MSG that both Noodleguy and Noodlegal have seen unsupervised schoolmates consume with moistened fingers "as is". (See "Freebase Ramen" below.) These children are abusers who will become
addicted in time to still more dangerous chemicals. (Mrs. Noodletoes' advisory might be taken with a grain of salt. After all, Mrs. Noodletoes also believes that Ramen Mania is a Japanese conspiracy meant to pollute the "precious bodily
fluids" of our nation's young college-aged men and women.) Mrs. Noodletoes recommends that you discard or use less than the prescribed amount of the poisonous powder.

Noodles a La Sardines

Submitted By: Ben Hyland

Submitted From: University of Kent at Canterbury

Boil up the noodles with whatever packets of soup-base comes
with them, then add a tin of sardines (in brine, not oil.) When
these have gone all mushy, add 5/6 jalapenos and a few drops of
Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce. Best enjoyed with a pint
of cold Guiness.

Note: Note from Ben: I've never heard of Ramens before but they
sound like UK Bachelors style noodles. Bachelors are the expensive
ones, the best(and cheapest) are from market stalls selling such
culinary delights as 6 - months out of date pickles and wet, flood-damaged
coffee. These noodles usually have product info in at least 4
South East Asian languages, and the spices in them blow your socks off.

Submitted By: David Pawlan

Submitted From: Jakarta, Indonesia

Get a load of cabbage and cut into very thin strips. Mix some
red wine vinegar and oil together with some salt and pepper. Add
some almond slivers to the cabbage and some peanuts if you like.
Crush a couple of packages of chicken ramen into the cabbage mixture,
pour the vinegar/oil mixture on the top and mix thoroughly. You
should mix this just about 15 minutes before serving so that the
ramen will still be a little crunchy.

Round-Thing Ramen

Submitted By: Andrew Fraser

Submitted From: Rochester Institute of Technology

Cook up some round things. I suggest shrimp balls, carrots
(cut round) and peas (fresh or frozen, not canned). Use anything
you can find around the kitchen that's round. Cook Ramen as per
directions on the package, but add one or two spicy Thai peppers
to the water as you cook the noodles. Dump a shake or two each
of fish sauce, soy sauce, and hot oil on top of the noodles. Add
round things. Eat and enjoy. (watch out for the peppers though,
they'll get ya every time.)
