As a kid I don’t ever remember eating ramen noodles, I think I first had them after I got married I thought they were just okay. But making it with the fresh veggies and shrimp turn it into yummy noodle goodness. You will never go back to the plain ramen with just the seasoning packet after you try this.

Add stock, soy sauce, brown sugar, sriracha and mix until combined. Bring to a rapid boil then reduce heat to medium and let simmer for 8 minutes.
