Blackened green onions are recommended as a topping for ramen, as it brings out the flavor and aroma. If you add them to our Signature Shio Ramen, it becomes irresistible! To best match with blackened green onions, marinate chicken thighs with some koji salt! Koji salt is a Japanese cure made by fermented rice. It tastes slightly sweet and salty, and it tenderizes the chicken! Add some Takana, pickled mustard greens for some vegetables! The combination of the green onions, oil, koji marinated chicken, and takana makes it perfect for light shio ramen!
