Shrimp Chow Mein with Vegetables

Chow Mein is a traditional Chinese dish that consists of noodles stir-fried with meat & vegetables.  Various different combinations of vegetables, meat, and sauces can be added to your Chow Mein. Feel free to substitute Italian fettuccine or linguini if Chinese egg noodles aren’t available. I always have fun of making Chow Mein noodles at home and my family loves it!

Serves 4-6

The Recipe
12 ounces Chinese egg noodles
1/2 pound raw shrimp, shelled and deveined
3 Tbsp. Vegetable Oil
1 cup of thinly sliced onions
1 cup of sliced mushroom
1/2 each Green and red bell pepper cut into quarters and each quarter cut crosswise into ¼ inch strips
2 cups shredded Napa cabbage
1 cup shredded or thinly sliced carrots
2 tsp. ginger minced
3 Tbsp. Soy Sauce
3 Tbsp. Oyster sauce
2 tsp. SriRacha, hot chili sauce – optional
Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
2-Scallions and chopped cilantro –for garnish
Boil noodles for about 2-3 minutes in a large pot of slightly salted water stirring to separate noodles. Drain and cool under cold running water. Toss with 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and set aside.
Heat the wok or largea heavy non-stick skillet on high heat. Add 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. When the oil is hot, add the garlic and ginger and stir-fry briefly until aromatic (about 30 seconds). Add shrimp and the rest of the vegetables and stir fry on high heat for about 2-3 minutes. Add the sauces and mix well. Add the cooked and drained noodles and stir fry till the sauce and vegetables are mixed well with the noodles. Season with black pepper. Taste, and adjust the seasonings if needed.  Usually the soy sauce takes care of it, but some need the extra salt. Garnish with optional cilantro and green onions.
Serve immediately.

    I love chow mein of any form. I have one of the BEST chow mein restaurants near my house. The other day, I went to get chow mein at 1 in the morning, and the restaurant was packed, with a lineup out the door. Now that I can make it at home, there is no need to lineup 🙂
