Thai Shrimp Lo Mein

Here is the Recipe for Thai Shrimp Lo Mein:

Serves: 4-6
Prep/Cook Time: 25 minutes

IngredientsYou will need:
8-10 oz. lo mein egg noodles (you can substitute spaghetti if you can’t find them)
1 Tbsp. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups sliced cremini mushrooms
1 cup shredded carrots
3 cups baby spinach
½ cup snow peas
1 lb. medium-size cooked shrimp (thawed if frozen)
2 green onions
¼ cup roasted peanuts, crushed

Easy Thai Peanut Sauce:
¼ cup Soyaki (Trader Joe’s)
¼ cup creamy peanut butter
2 Tbsp. toasted sesame oil
¼ cup water

Here’s what to do:

Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain well and set aside. Heat olive oil in a large skillet or wok over medium high heat. Add garlic, mushrooms, and carrots. Cook, stirring frequently, until tender, about 3-4 minutes.

Mushrooms and Carrots

Stir in spinach and snow peas until the spinach has completely wilted, about 2-3 minutes.

Veggies

If you are using a wok, add shrimp and toss until mixed, then stir in egg noodles. (If you are using a skillet pan and are out of room at this point, combine veggies, shrimp, and noodles back in the pot that you cooked the noodles in, over low-medium heat.)

Combine

Prepare Thai Peanut Sauce by whisking Soyaki, peanut butter, and sesame oil until blended. Add water and mix well.

Thai Peanut Sauce

Pour Peanut Sauce over noodles and toss gently until all noodles are evenly coated. Top with green onions and crushed peanuts. Chopsticks optional, Enjoy!
