1 T brown sugar (we use kokuto, a brown sugar from Okinawa, but dark brown sugar would work instead for at home)
1 T black pepper (ground)
1 T salt
2 T water
1 T crab roe
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 oz fresh or frozen ramen noodles
Bring water to simmer over medium heat, lower to med-low temp and add butter one TB at a time until it emulsifies. Stir in remaining ingredients except ramen noodles and stir to combine. Cook ramen noodles according to package directions, drain and toss with prepared sauce before serving.
