Scott & Jon’s Spicy Shrimp Ramen Noodle Bowl Review

Scott & Jon's Spicy Shrimp Ramen Noodle Bowl

We love shrimp, we love ramen, and the Scott & Jon’s frozen food line has treated us pretty well so far. Even though all three of these statements are true, we’ve been hesitant to try the Scott & Jon’s Spicy Shrimp Ramen Noodle Bowl for a little while now. While Scott & Jon’s makes some excellent shrimp-filled frozen meals, there aren’t many brands that can do frozen ramen well. So we’re definitely keeping our expectations in check here.

Still, we’d be lying if we said this meal doesn’t have potential to be great. And the only way to know if this is a wonderful take on frozen ramen or a real dud is to try it for ourselves. That’s exactly what we’re doing today.

This is super easy to cook. Pour 3/4 cup of water into the bowl, pop it into the microwave for two minutes, give it a quick stir, then pop it back in for two more minutes. You’ll end up with a piping hot bowl of ramen, which will then need to cool for a minute or two.

When we pulled this out at the two-minute mark, we got pretty nervous about the shrimp. It was all pale and kind of gross-looking at that point. Once we nuked it for two more minutes, however, the shrimp was looking a lot healthier. That’s a good thing, because the shrimp tends to be the best part of Scott & Jon’s frozen meals.

We do admit, however, that the shrimp in this dish isn’t quite up to snuff for the brand. It tastes fishier and less buttery than the shrimp in other meals, and we even found one piece that still contained a big piece of the hard tail shell that we had to spit out. Normally, that’s not an issue with Scott & Jon’s shrimp portions.

The rest of the meal is pretty alright. The noodles are a bit soggier than we’d prefer, but that’s to be expected from a frozen meal rather than restaurant-quality ramen.

The broth is a shoyu style broth, and it has a great flavor. It livens up the dish quite a bit, and it even has a decent spice level to it. It’s probably not spicy enough for thrill-seekers, but it’s spicier than most of the frozen dishes we’ve tried — even the ones that say “spicy” in the title.

There are some veggies mixed in as well, including carrots, corn, and broccoli. The carrots and corn are barely there and sort of just alright, but the broccoli really steals the veggie show. We were surprised by how fresh this manages to taste. We’ve recently had some funky broccoli, so we’re pretty pleased with this batch.

This is nice and light in the calorie department, with just 250 calories per bowl. The sodium level, however, is less appealing. With 880 mg of sodium, this is kind of a sodium overload. Be careful with this one!

The Scott & Jon’s Spicy Shrimp Ramen Noodle Bowl is one of the better frozen ramen meals we’ve tried. It’s definitely not perfect, but it stands a good measure taller than similar offerings by PF Chang’s. This has a pretty decent broth, a good shrimp flavor, and some heat to really spice things up. It’s a pretty satisfying thing to eat on a cold winter’s evening.
