4 c. coleslaw mix or finely sliced cabbage

How to make Shrimp Lo Mein
Step 1: Place the sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Mix well and set aside.
Step 2: Following the package directions, cook the noodles. Then, drain well.
Step 3: Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. With salt and pepper, season the shrimp. Add the shrimp to the hot oil and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes until the shrimp starts to turn pink. Set aside when done.
Step 4: If needed, add more oil to the now-empty pan. Add the coleslaw mix along with the bell pepper. Stir fry for about 3 to 4 minutes or until the veggies start to soften. Next, add the ginger and garlic. Continue to cook for another 30 seconds.
Step 5: Return the shrimp to the pan and pour in the sauce. Stir and cook for additional 2 minutes or until the shrimp is completely cooked. Then, toss in the noodles.
Step 6: Remove from the heat and serve the Shrimp Lo Mein right away. Enjoy!
For this recipe, you can use fresh or dried egg noodles. Spaghetti can also be used.
Make sure not to rinse the noodles after cooking. The starch will help thicken the sauce so it clings better to the veggies and shrimp.
In an airtight container, keep any leftovers and store them in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Before serving, reheat the leftovers in the microwave or a saucepan until completely heated.
