Tasting Notes

Our ramen noodles of choice are egg noodles, which are rich in flavor and stand up well to Michael's deeply delicious duck broth.

Shaved vegetables are lightly cooked in the hot broth to bring a freshness that balances the other flavors in the dish. Sweet carrots and fennel compliment the rich gaminess of the duck, while shaved radish adds a delicate, peppery hint of spice. Fresh limes and spicy Korean chili paste bring acidity.

Tips & Techniques

  1. A close shave. For vegetables that will wilt in the hot broth, be sure to shave them very thinly.
  2. Heat it up. To give your noodles the best possible texture, make sure that your broth is very hot before you dump them in.
  3. Suit yourself. Serve the condiments on the side so each person can adjust the flavor of their ramen to their liking.

Toolbox

These tools are ones we find especially helpful when making this dish.

  1. Bamboo steamer. This woven steamer basket is perfect for reheating the duck and steaming the dumplings while the noodles are cooking.
  2. Ramen Bowl. Presentation makes this impressive meal pop. Find the perfect ramen bowl to serve your duck ramen meal. Michael loves Jered’s Pottery  so much that he features his dishware not only at his restaurants, but also in his home. Make sure to pick a bowl large enough to fit all of the ramen components of this decadent dish.

The list below includes all the equipment you’ll want to make this dish.

  • Large pot
  • Bamboo steamer
  • Strainer
  • Mandolin
  • Tweezers (fingers) or tongs
  • Bowls of ice water

Method
  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  2. Place ramen noodles in boiling water and boil until tender, about 3 minutes. Strain. Toss with a little chili oil, soy sauce and ponzu to taste. Serve immediately.
  3. Slice radish, fennel and carrot as thinly as possible on a mandolin and place in bowls of ice water to keep them fresh and crisp until ready to serve.

Here is a great way to turn this dish into a meal

Quick and easy noodle soup

You can serve the noodles and vegetables with any homemade or high-quality store-brought broth. Choose lighter vegetables such as cabbage and scallions to pair with fish or shrimp broth, and heartier ones, like turnips and red onions if you’re using chicken or beef broth.
