Shrimp Chow Mein: Make it at home in less than 20 minutes

Shrimp Chow Mein -1

Shrimp Chow Mein is home made from your favorite fast food dish, made with shrimp, vegetables and oats in a delicious sauce, ready in less than 20 minutes!

Chow Mein Shrimp is one of my favorite Chinese dishes! It's great as one meal, but if I feed a group of friends, I would love to serve it with cheesecake with meat and sesame chicken. This Chow Mein Shrimp Recipe is one quick and easy meal with lots of fried shrimp, fried vegetables with pasta and a simple sauce.

It's time to eat again! Always the best single course meal for easy preparation, this shrimp is made with great ease. In fact, this may be one of the easiest meals I've ever had! It's basically fried with shrimps, stirred with pasta and a sauce of 4 ingredients. If you don't have shrimp, you can replace chicken nuggets, and this dish will be absolutely delicious. But I love shrimp, and this is what will break in this recipe.

Both plates are used noodles and eggs, but prawns Chow Mein uses specific noodles Chow Mein, while Lu Min uses boiled noodles. Le Min also contains more sauce in the dish than Chow Mein, while Chow Mein contains more oil and is crispy because the texture of the noodles is fried.

Tips for making chow mein shrimp

Can't find Chow Mein noodles? You can replace noodles with any other type of noodle available.

You can add half a teaspoon of crushed ginger or a teaspoon of chopped ginger to chow mein to get more flavor, or a quarter of a teaspoon of cayenne pepper for more heat.

If you want to make this vegan, you can substitute shrimp with vegetables entirely.
Part of what makes Chinese food so good is the way the frying pan works with the heat. Try to keep the frying pan or frying pan very hot, and make sure to stir to make sure the food is cooked quickly instead of burning. I like to use a conventional frying pan, but you can find electric fryers if you don't have a gas grill.

This chow mein shrimp recipe calls for regular or light soy sauce, I do not recommend using dark soy sauce for this broth.

Try to prepare everything in advance, such as vegetables or sauce, as this dish will be cooked quickly. I'll get your barley cooked in hot water as you prepare for vegetables, then make it ready to go when the shrimp enters.

This recipe calls for shrimp, but you can make it with beef, prawns, or chicken as well. I like to use chicken breast to get smaller chunks of meat. Or make this vegetarian as an additional recipe.

Make this limit of saturated carbohydrates with tofu carbohydrates, but they will not be as prized as your traditional Chow Mein noodles. Or you can stir spiral vegetables such as carrots and zucchini.
