Shrimp and noodles

Here is a fun recipe for the family that is easy to make and fun to eat.  No need for stopping at your favorite noodle restaurant, this one is great tasting and made at home.

I adapted this recipe from one that I found in Cooking Light magazine last summer. I used 8 ounces of Lo Mein noodles and cooked according to the package directions and drained.

Next, I combined 1 1/2 cups chicken stock, 2 tablespoon soy sauce, 1 teaspoon cornstarch, 1 teaspoon sesame oil, 1/2 teaspoon sugar, and black pepper to taste in a small bowl.

Then, in a large electric skillet, I drizzled 1 tablespoon stir fry oil and added  1 1/4 cups broccoli tops, 3/4 cup sliced carrots, and 3/4 cup red pepper.  Saute these until soft and then add 1/4 cup chicken stock mixture.  Heat for another 2-3 minutes and then add one bag cleaned large shrimp, along with 1 tablespoon minced garlic and 1 teaspoon minced ginger.  Continue to cook until the shrimp are cooked and pink.  Then add the Lo Mein noodles and the rest of the chicken stock mixture.

Cook until all the ingredients are well mixed and warmed through.  Just prior to serving, add 1 tablespoon rice vinegar.  Top with Sesame seeds if desired for serving.

this baked shrimp recipe is very good and comes together is less than 30 minutes.  the baked shrimp can be served over rice, noodles, or even with just toast.  i used cleaned shrimp 26-30 count.  this dish could be served as an appetizer.

place the shrimp in a baking dish with 1/2 stick or 1/4 cup margarine.  i sliced the margarine between the shrimp.  add about 1/4 cup white wine or enough to cover the bottom of the dish.  season the shrimp with Italian seasoning, pepper, and parsley flakes.

bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 15 minutes.  fast, easy, and oh so good!
