serves two

2 instant ramen packages, seasonings discarded
1 teaspoon sesame seed oil
2 teaspoons fish sauce
1 tablespoon chili garlic sauce, or to taste
3 pieces bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 medium onion, sliced
1/4 pound bay shrimp
1 egg
1/4 cup chopped fresh herbs (Thai basil, mint, cilantro, etc...)

Cook the ramen noodles according to manufacturer instructions. Drain, rinse, and set aside. In a bowl combine the sesame seed oil, fish sauce, and chili garlic sauce. Set aside. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the bacon until nearly golden brown, 3-5 minutes. Stir in the onions and shrimp and cook until the shrimp is cooked through and the onions are softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in the egg and cook until the egg is fully cooked, about 1 minute. Toss the drained ramen noodles with the bacon/shrimp mixture. Stir in the sesame seed-fish sauce-chili garlic sauce mixture until the noodles are coated and heated through. Remove from heat, add the fresh herbs and serve warm.
