Crafting the Peanut Butter Ramen Sauce
Take your taste buds on a trip through the flavors of savory and nutty with this delicious Peanut Butter Ramen Noodles Recipe with Shrimp. To begin with, let us start by making the sauce; it is a delicious blend of low-sodium soy sauce, lime juice, sesame oil, and PB2 powdered peanut butter. Water can be used to thin the sauce to the appropriate consistency, giving it a silky finish that barely coats a spoon.
Cooking and Assembling the Shrimp Ramen Recipe with Peanut Butter
Toss the jumbo shrimp in a spoonful of the cooked sauce to give them a flavorful boost. Let them absorb the delicious mixture for about 20 minutes. In the meantime, boil some water for the brown rice and millet ramen noodles, and cook for no more than 4 minutes.
Place the sugar snap peas and red bell pepper slices in a heated wok or big skillet. Sear for one to two minutes, or until deep sear marks appear. When the shrimp are fully cooked, which should take around 6 to 8 minutes, add the marinated shrimp to the mixture and toss everything together.
Add the cooked noodles and pour in the prepared sauce while the skillet is on low heat, or take off the heat if needed. Toss to coat all of the ingredients with the rich, peanut deliciousness, including the noodles, carrots, and shrimp.

Ramen with Peanut Butter & Shrimp
4 tablespoons PB2 powdered peanut butter
- natural peanut butter which will increase the fat calories
- 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
- juice from 1 lime
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1oz water, add as needed
10oz raw jumbo shrimp
- I used cooked frozen shrimp as a timesaver
- 1 large red bell pepper, sliced
- 1 cup sugar snap peas
4oz ramen noodles
- I recommend brown rice & millet ramen noodles
- crushed peanuts
- fresh lime
Mix together the ingredients for the sauce and set aside. Add water as needed for thinning. It should be thin enough to lightly coat a spoon.
Add a tablespoon of the sauce to the shrimp and let it marinate for about 20 minutes.
Note: I am using frozen cooked shrimp. The instructions are the exact same but with a slightly faster cook time for the frozen shrimp.
Bring a pot of water to a boil and add noodles. Once cooked to your satisfaction, drain and set aside. Should take no more than 4 minutes.
Set a wok or large skillet on medium-high heat. Once hot, spray with oil and add the bell pepper and sugar snap peas. Let the veggies sear untouched for 1 – 2 minutes or until deep sear marks appear.
Then add the shrimp and toss everything until the shrimp is cooked through about 6 – 8 minutes
Reduce the heat of the skillet to low or remove from the heat if it is too hot. Add the noodles and then pour in the sauce. Toss the noodles with the veggies and shrimp.
Serve immediately and enjoy with a side garden salad or slaw.
