    Spicy Shrimp Lo Mein with Bell Pepper, Snow Peas & Sesame Seeds
    Title
    • 10 oz Shrimp (Peeled & Deveined)
    • ½ lb Lo Mein Noodles
    • 4 oz Snow Peas
    • 1 Bell Pepper
    • 2 Scallions
    • 1 Tbsp Sambal Oelek
    • 3 Tbsps Savory Black Bean-Chile Sauce

    Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

    Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the snow peas crosswise (removing the tough strings if desired). Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. In a bowl, whisk together the black bean sauce, 2 tablespoons of water, and as much of the sambal oelek as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be.

    2 Cook the noodles

    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.

    Cook the vegetables
    3 Cook the vegetables

    Meanwhile, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced pepper. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the halved snow peas and sliced white bottoms of the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 4 minutes, or until slightly softened. Transfer to a bowl. Wipe out the pan.

    Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned shrimp in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly opaque. Add the cooked noodles, cooked vegetables, and sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the noodles are coated and the shrimp are opaque and cooked through. Turn off the heat. Serve the finished noodles garnished with the sesame seeds and sliced green tops of the scallions. Enjoy!
