Shrimp Lo Mein

More noodles coming your way…

Actually I think it’s quite funny that I made noodles two out of three nights last week and I probably haven’t made a noodle dish in months.  It just so happened that after sending a friend three recipes to choose from and sending Big Guy three shrimp recipes to pick from, they both picked the noodle recipe from the bunch.  At least they were very different – from the protein to the flavor profile, I can honestly say they were totally different dinners.

The only change I made to the shrimp lo mein was to use sugar snap peas instead of broccoli.  This Asian dish comes together in about 35 minutes (and most of the time is spent waiting for the water to boil for the noodles) and is totally customizable.  If your family doesn’t like shrimp – try chicken; if you’re not a fan of ginger – use more garlic.  Make this dinner yours.

The only thing I will beg you to do is make sure to prep ALL ingredients before you start cooking.  Because once you start, there’s no time to dice or chop or measure.

Oh, and I added some freshness on top with some basil confetti.  Totally recommend that, too.

Hope you’re having a great week – and I promise, no more noodles for a while.
