Pairing savory warmth and irresistible crunch, Chef Adam Wright presents his innovative creation: Honey Miso Ramen with Fried Chicken. This dish blends the traditional essence and flavors of ramen with the latest culinary craze, hot honey – offering a unique twist to two cherished classics.
Chef Adam draws inspiration from a deep love of ramen and a passion for leveraging the latest food trends in new and interesting ways. Hot honey has taken the culinary world by storm, finding its way into a variety of dishes, particularly fried chicken. Chef Adam saw an opportunity to merge his two favorite elements, creating something truly special.
Simplicity in the Kitchen: A Recipe for Culinary Ease
Honey Miso Ramen with Fried Chicken is fundamentally rooted in the pursuit of operational simplicity and exemplifies the notion of culinary ease. While traditional ramen preparation and broth-making can become quite complex, the real key to effortless execution lies in leveraging convenient products. The beauty of this dish also lies in its adaptability.
While it’s perfect for cozy autumn evenings in front of a fire, it can also be tailored to various dining environments. From restaurants offering ramen kits for customers to assemble at home to cafeterias and long-term care facilities, this dish’s flexibility makes it suitable for diverse culinary settings.
The umami-rich broth, the crispy and flavorful fried chicken, and the sweet and spicy hot honey glaze all come together to create a vibrant experience for your mouth. It’s a dish that balances comfort and excitement. Here’s how it all comes together:
- Prepare a Hot Honey Glaze by mixing honey and Custom Culinary® Hot Louisiana Flavour Glaze
- Create a flavorful Miso Togarashi Broth by combining cold water, Custom Culinary® Chicken Gravy, Custom Culinary® Togarashi Seasoning, white miso paste, and hot honey glaze
- Cook fresh ramen noodles until they reach the desired texture
- Prepare crispy fried chicken by marinating chicken pieces in a togarashi seasoning and water mixture, followed by coating them in Custom Culinary® Seasoned Flour and Custom Culinary® All Purpose Crispy Batter
- Deep fry until golden brown, toss chicken into hot honey glaze
- Assemble the dish by placing cooked ramen noodles in a bowl, adding the miso togarashi broth, and topping it with hot honey-glazed fried chicken
- Garnish your creation with sliced green onions and fragrant Thai basil
Enhancing Fried Chicken: The Secret to Crispy Perfection
The Custom Culinary Hot Louisiana Flavour Glaze is oil-based, making it a game changer for the fried chicken in this dish. What sets it apart is its dual functionality. Not only does it infuse a burst of unique spicy flavor into the chicken, but it also acts as a protective barrier, keeping the fried chicken crispy by preventing moisture in the ramen broth from compromising its crunchiness.
To enhance your dining experience, consider pairing this dish with a beer, brut, or an effervescent cocktail. These options complement the spicy and savory elements of the meal and cleanse your palate for each bite.
Exploring Culinary Innovation through Flavor Fusion
Honey Miso Ramen with Fried Chicken is a testament to the ever-evolving world of culinary innovation. Chef Adam’s creative fusion showcases the adaptability of ramen and the trending flavors of hot honey. This dish not only brings high-flavor fusion but also offers endless possibilities for customization and adaptation, making it a standout in the world of contemporary cuisine.
