Shrimp Lo Mein Recipe

Shrimp Lo Mein Recipe
1/2 lb. medium shrimp
1/8 tsp garlic salt
2 carrots
2 stalks of celery
2 green onions
½ cup sliced white button mushrooms
8oz wide lo mein noodles (Regular lo mein noodles can be used as well.)
1 tsp dark sesame oil
2 tbsp peanut oil

2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp oyster sauce
½ cup stock (chicken or vegetable)
1 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp sugar

  1. Peel and devein the shrimp and sprinkle with the garlic salt and set them aside.

  2. Then peel the carrots and slice them on a diagonal.

  3. Rinse the celery stalks and chop off the very ends and discard. Then slice them on a diagonal into the same size pieces as the carrots.

  4. Next rinse the green onions, discard the ends and any wilted parts. Then dice them and set them aside with the carrots and celery.

  5. Lightly rinse or brush off any dirt on the sliced mushrooms. Here I simply purchase the mushrooms already sliced which are usually pre washed. However, you can also purchase whole mushrooms, brush or rinse them and then slice them yourself if you wish.

  6. Then in a large cup mix together all of the ingredients for the sauce.

  7. Once the sauce, shrimp and vegetables are prepared, it’s time to start cooking.

  8. Bring a large pot of water (large enough to cook the noodles in) with one teaspoon of salt to a boil. Once it boils add the noodles and let them cook for about 5 minutes, or until “al dente.”

  9. Then drain them thoroughly and stir in the sesame oil and set them aside.

  10. Then add 1 tablespoon of the peanut oil to a wok and heat this on medium high.

  11. When the oil is hot add the shrimp and cook them for about 1 to 2 minutes, or just until they turn light pink. Then remove them and place them on a plate and set them aside.

  12. Next heat the remaining tablespoon of peanut oil in the wok on high.

  13. Once it is hot add the carrots, celery and sliced mushrooms and stir fry them for about 3 minutes, or until the mushrooms are soft and the carrots and celery are crisp- tender.

  14. Then add the sauce mixture and stir constantly. Let it come to a boil and lightly thicken.
  15. Then return the noodles to the wok and stir until they are coated with the sauce and heated through. Then add the cooked shrimp and green onions and toss everything together and serve immediately. This makes about 4 servings of shrimp lo mein, enjoy!
