2 cups lo mein noodles, or asian noodle of your choice
2 cups frozen peas and carrots
½ yellow onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp garlic powder
½ tsp ground ginger
1 pound shrimp, medium-large
4 cups lo mein noodles, or asian noodle of your choice
4 cups frozen peas and carrots
1 yellow onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 tbsp sesame oil
4 tbsp soy sauce
4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ground ginger
(If using frozen shrimp, pull them out of the freezer and thaw them by placing in a bowl of water)
Get a large pot of water boiling
As the water is boiling, dice the onion and mince the garlic (scroll down for how-to videos)
Once the water is boiling, cook the lo mein (or other asian noodle of your choice) according to package instructions. When finished, strain and set aside.
Meanwhile, as the noodles are cooking, heat a large skillet over medium heat and coat with oil. Toss in the shrimp and cook for about 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp are pink. Once cooked, remove them from the pan and set aside.
Next, in the same skillet, add the garlic and onions. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until the onions start to become translucent.
Add in the frozen peas and carrots to the pan. Cook covered for 5-7 minutes, stirring every few minutes.
Once the veggies are just about finished, reduce heat to low, and add in the noodles and shrimp. Season with soy sauce, garlic powder, ground ginger, and sriracha and give everything a big stir to evenly mix.
Cook for another 2-3 minutes, tasting as you go to see if it needs any more seasoning or sauce. Once you're happy with it, serve it up!
