Lo Mein Shrimp Pan Garnished With Scallions On A Wooden Cutting Board

What is shrimp lo mein ?

The difference between Lo Mein and Chow Mein is the noodle. Chow mein noodles are usually fried while lo mein noodles are steamed. Other than that, the dishes are somewhat similar.

We add shrimp because it tastes great, fast and easy to prepare, but of course it can be made in the form of a small chicken or even vegetables!

This recipe is perfect for a hectic dinner, and it only takes about 30 minutes!

This recipe uses egg noodles that you can buy fresh at the grocery store (often found near tofu) or dried. If you don’t have anything on hand, spaghetti will work just fine.

Shrimp use peeled and dehydrated raw shrimp, medium size with tail removed. If using frozen shrimp, pour cold water until it is thawed before adding it to the saucepan.

The mix of fresh VEGGIES coleslaw, paprika and yellow pepper adds some color to this dish! Try zucchini, baby corn, chopped spinach, or mushrooms to mix them up a little!

The sauce is easy to prepare! Soy sauce, hoisin, brown sugar, and sesame oil are mixed with water to make this sweet and salty sauce!

Optional wraps: try chopped peanuts, fresh bean sprouts, chopped basil or cilantro, and sprinkle red pepper flakes! Don’t forget Sambal or Sriracha for a hot kick!

lb angel hair pasta
diced tomato
6 -8
whole garlic cloves
shallot, diced
pint heavy cream
cup dry white wine
olive oil
5 -7
leaves fresh basil
tablespoons parmesan cheese, finely grated
tablespoons parmesan cheese, finely grated
cup all-purpose flour
teaspoon salt
teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
teaspoon cayenne pepper

Pour enough olive oil in a large sauce pan to cover the bottom, turn to medium high heat. This is the only pot you’ll need for the sauce so it should be big. Soak the shrimp in milk and combine the dry ingredients (flour, 2T cheese, salt, pepper). Coat the shrimp with the dry ingredients and let them fry in the olive oil, About 2 minutes per side until golden brown. The Flour that falls off the shrimp will add great flavor and consistency to the sauce. Add more oil as necessary, between batches of shrimp. Dab the shrimp with a paper towel, cover and set aside on range top to keep warm.
Add the garlic to the oil, stir for a few minutes, then turn the heat to medium low. Now add the wine and bring it to a boil. Then turn the heat to low and cover, let the wine reduce, about 10-15 minutes.
In a separate pot, bring water to simmer. (for pasta later).

Add the cream, and bring it back to a boil, turn heat to low and simmer for 10 more minutes. While it is simmering dice your shallot and tomato, and chiffonade your basil. Now add the Basil, diced tomato, shallots and remaining 2T Parmesan cheese. Stir for a moment then add the fried shrimp, and remove the pan from heat. The sauce will thicken as it cools.
Bring pasta pot to a boil and add angel hair and cook.
To plate, pour some sauce on a dish and arrange the shrimp around the bottom (10 or so), then take a ball of the pasta and plate that above the shrimp. garnish with a little parsley.
