Every variation on ramen—the globally-popular Japanese noodle dish—is wonderful in its own way. Here, we’re celebrating mazemen, which swaps out broths for light sauces and puts the spotlight on its diverse, delicious ingredients. Our summertime recipe combines fresh noodles with peppery mizuna leaves and sautéed shrimp, corn and tomatoes. We’re coating them in a deeply savory, white miso-soy sauce, then garnishing the dish with scallion greens and a sprinkle of togarashi (a flavorful Japanese spice blend).
