Easy Shrimp Lo Mein

 


Packed with flavor, this shrimp lo mein recipe has tender juicy shrimp, veggies, and egg noodles in a simple sauce.

We love to make our own stir-fries at home to keep things fresh and healthy!

What Is Shrimp Lo Mein?
The difference Lo Mein vs. Chow Mein is the noodles. While the dishes are fairly similar, there are some difference. Chow mein noodles are typically fried while lo mein noodles are steamed.

We add in shrimp because it tastes great and it’s so quick and easy to make but of course this can be made as a chicken lo mein or even just veggies!

This recipe is perfect for hectic dinners, it only takes about 30 minutes!
