Ingredients
  • 2 tbsps butter
  • 1 package of ramen noodles
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds
  • 1 handful sunflower seeds
  • 5 cups green cabbage chopped
  • 3 3-4 green onions sliced
  • some snap peas, carrots, bean sprouts, whatever else you want
  • 3 tbsps brown sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 6 tbsps plain rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup oil (any - I usually use canola for this)
  • 1 lb peeled, deveined, uncooked shrimp
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil (to cook shrimp)
  • 1 1/2 tbsps soy sauce (to cook shrimp)
  • sesame seeds for garnish
Directions

1) Melt the butter in a pan over medium - high heat

2) Remove the flavor packet from the ramen and break the noodles up. I use a rolling pin to smash them around a little.

3) Add the uncooked ramen, almonds, and sunflower seeds to the pan and saute until toasted light brown. (3-4 minutes but watch it, don't let it burn) Let cool...

4) In a glass jar with a lid, shake together the brown sugar, salt, rice vinegar, oil. 

5) Put all the chopped and sliced salad veggies in a large bowl. Add the toasted crunch mix and pour desired amount of dressing all over. Toss, toss, toss until everything is fully coated. 

6) For your protein, in this case I am using shrimp, but obviously you can do whatever you prefer; chicken, steak, tofu.... I heat the sesame oil on high heat in another pan or on my griddle for a minute or two, when it is nice and hot, I add the shrimp and splash with some soy sauce while it is cooking. This takes just a few minutes, 3-4? Not much. I add it to the salad *right after* it is cooked. I think the warmth of the shrimp helps open up more flavors throughout. 

7) We like sasame seeds sprinkled on top.
