Recipe by Manda
This is a wonderful shrimp lo mein recipe. To cut down on prep time, I peel and devein the shrimp ahead of time, or buy the ones that are already done for you. Sprinkle with a little sesame seed and sliced scallion for a nice presentation. (Note: Oil measure is approximate; you may need to add a little more to prevent sticking)

I tried to make a house lo mein for my husband and I used the shrimp marinade from this recipe. He said the shrimp was the best part of the dish! I will try again with the same marinade on all of the meat and possibly even the rest of the recipe.
