From the Test Kitchen

This spin on a Chinese takeout favorite highlights our flavorful soy-miso sauce (brightened with a bit of heat from sambal oelek), which coats springy lo mein noodles, tender shrimp, and crisp baby bok choy. A garnish of roasted peanuts adds a final layer of crunchy texture and umami (or savory) flavor.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:

Fill a large pot with water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the bok choy; cut off and discard the root end, then thinly slice crosswise. Roughly chop the peanuts. In a bowl, combine the soy-miso sauce, 1/4 cup of water, and as much of the sambal oelek as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be.

Cook the shrimp & bok choy:
2 Cook the shrimp & bok choy:

Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the shrimp in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly opaque. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until mostly opaque. Add the sliced bok choy, sauce, and sautéed aromatics. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the bok choy is softened and the shrimp are opaque and cooked through. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Cook the noodles:
3 Cook the noodles:

While the shrimp and bok choy cook, add the noodles to the pot of boiling water, stirring gently to separate. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 4 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and rinse under warm water 30 seconds to 1 minute to prevent sticking. Return to the pot.

4 Finish & serve your dish:
