8 oz. large shrimp (1/2 pound), peeled and deveined

1 pound fresh pre-cooked lo mein noodles, fresh chow mein noodles, fresh egg noodles, or fresh ramen noodles

3 tablespoons neutral oil (like vegetable or canola), divided

3 cups vegetables – like red bell peppers, carrots, cabbage, napa cabbage, or bok choy – julienne cut or finely chopped

1 cup snow peas, trimmed

White ground pepper (optional)


3 tablespoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon oyster sauce

1 tablespoon shaoxing wine or dry sherry

1 garlic clove, minced

1 teaspoon sesame oil


Put all the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl and mix well. Set aside.

Boil the noodles according package instructions, drain and toss with 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. This will prevent the noodles from sticking together. Set aside.

In a large deep pan or wok over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and shrimp. Cook for 3-4 minutes and transfer them to a plate. Set aside.

Raise the temperature to medium-high (or high if your stove top doesn’t get really hot) and add the remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. When the oil is hot, add the julienned vegetables and snow peas and stir fry for 4 minutes.

Add the cooked shrimp, noodles and the sauce and toss well for 1 minute.

Turn heat off, transfer lo mein to a plate and serve with white ground pepper.
