Ramen salmon and halumi burger

Ever since I heard of a ramen burger I have been so curious to try one. I have never found them on any menu but one day I came across this blog and decided to make one myself. It seemed waiting to find one on a menu was a long way off. I had never even thought I could make them but this was a truly simple and it was finally my turn!

I wanted a seafood burger and opted for salmon as it is delicious and has lots of flavour, I thought it would be good with the noodles inspired by seafood ramen.

 

I followed the recipe above except I didn’t have a flavour pack so I added salt, pepper and sesame seeds to the noodles. The sesame added a slight nuttiness that I liked.

I did try one and as they might not be as pretty and professional looking they were delicious. The outside was crispy and the inside soft and chewy.

I am glad I made the burgers as I finally got to eat some. I am quite sure I will make them again, it is so interesting but I will add more interesting spices to the noodles and I would make a spicier sauce but it was still good.

  4. I’ve heard about this, Sarah and Spice did a mac and cheese bun. I love your ramen bun, and with the salmon burger, just perfect.

  5. I’ve been hearing a lot about the ramen burgers too, Petra. Didn’t realise they were so easy to do – thanks for the heads up – I love your combinations with the salmon and the halloumi and sesame too!

      hi Selma

      It never really occurred to me that I could do them at all, mine didn’t have the nice uniform shape but it worked and it was a nice contrast between the crispy and the soft noodles. 🙂
