just rip open a can of your favorite flavored sardines.(smoked ones are my favorite.) and cook your favorite flavored ramen noodles, cook with any vegitables you like, add Valentina hot sauce to your heart's desire. or any hot sauce that you like. tabasco is too vingery for my taste. since i like my sardines cold i don't add it to the noodles, i take a bite of the fish then slurp up a mouthfull of ramen. YUMM smoked herring works well also.
