Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Pineapple — Use fresh pineapple for the best flavor. If using canned pineapple, choose the one packed in juice rather than syrup.
  • Jerk seasoning — Adjust the amount of jerk seasoning according to your spice preference. Add more for a spicier kick or reduce for a milder flavor.
  • Ramen noodles — Look for ramen noodles that are free from added MSG and preservatives for a healthier option.
  • Coconut milk — Shake the can of coconut milk well before using to ensure the creamy part is fully incorporated.
  • Lime juice — Freshly squeezed lime juice adds a bright and tangy flavor. Adjust the amount to suit your taste.

Tips & Tricks

  • For an extra burst of flavor, top the ramen with sliced scallions and a drizzle of hot sauce.
  • Customize your Caribbean Ramen by adding protein such as tofu, shrimp, or grilled chicken.
  • If you prefer a thicker broth, simmer the soup for a longer time to reduce and concentrate the flavors.
  • Experiment with different tropical fruits like mango or papaya for a unique twist.
  • Don't forget to slurp the noodles! It's a traditional way to enjoy ramen and enhances the overall experience.

Serving advice

Serve the Caribbean-inspired Ramen hot in individual bowls. Squeeze fresh lime juice over the ramen just before eating to add a tangy kick. Enjoy with chopsticks or a fork and spoon.

Presentation advice

To make the dish visually appealing, arrange the colorful vegetables on top of the noodles and garnish with fresh cilantro. Serve the ramen in vibrant bowls that reflect the tropical theme.
