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. Drain well when done.

Step 3: Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. In the meantime, sprinkle the shrimp with salt and pepper. Once the oil is hot, add the seasoned shrimp to the pan and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes or until the shrimp is starting to turn pink. Set the shrimp aside when done.

Step 4: If needed, add more oil. To the same skillet, add the coleslaw mix and bell pepper. Stir well and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes or until starting to soften. Next, add the ginger along with the garlic and continue to cook for additional 30 seconds.

Step 5: Return the shrimp to the pan and pour in the sauce. Cook for additional 2 minutes or until the shrimp is completely cooked. Then, toss in the noodles.

Step 6: Remove from the heat when done and serve the Shrimp Lo Mein immediately. Enjoy!


For this recipe, you can use fresh or dried egg noodles. Spaghetti is also a great option.

After cooking the noodles, do not rinse them. Leave the noodles starchy as this will help thicken the sauce.

In an airtight container, keep any leftovers and store them in the fridge for up to 3 days.

To reheat, pop in the microwave or transfer in a saucepan and warm on the stovetop.
