  • 1 knob fresh ginger (about 4-5 inches) peeled, finely chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1 bunch scallions (green onions) thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup olive oil or neutral light olive oil or grapeseed oil
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon white sugar
  • kosher salt to taste
  • 4 5-ounce packages ramen noodles

Optional Garnishes

  • sesame seeds
  • cilantro
  • scallions
  • fresno chiles, sliced


  • Combine the ginger, garlic, and two-thirds of scallions together in a large bowl.
  • Heat the oil in a small saucepan over medium high heat for about 2 minutes. Turn the heat off and add the ginger mixture. Let the mixture infuse for 5 minutes before stirring in remaining scallions. Stir in soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, pepper, sesame oil, and sugar; season with salt. Set aside for 15 minutes to let flavors come together. Taste and adjust seasonings.
  • Meanwhile, cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and toss with as much or as little scallion sauce as you'd like in bowl.
  • Top with sesame seeds and assorted garnishes.
