Ramen Radiator

Moore Food, Please is back from our short break, work woes have kept us busy and too exhausted to post recently. We do have a few dishes from the last few weeks to write about and hopefully we will have them all up soon.

Last night we tried a recipe from the Alton Brown book I'm Just Here for the Food: Version 2.0 and it was yummy. The recipe was Ramen Radiator (page 169). The recipe reminded me of the "silver turtles" I used to make when I was in scouts as a kids. The cooking method had us wrap everything up in aluminum foil and let the liquid cook the goodies with steam in the oven.

We will definitely revisit this recipe, with a few minor changes. The final dish was a little sweet for our taste, so we will probably omit the honey, cut back on the mirin and slightly increase the amount of soy sauce. We give this one 4 out of 5 stars, and with a little work it could easily become 5.

what isn't visible is the half "load" of ramen noodles under the fish

we decided to eat like grown ups for once
