Heart Healthy Shrimp Lo Mein Recipe
In a medium bowl, combine the sesame oil, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, 1 garlic clove and 1 teaspoon of the ginger. Add the shrimp and toss with the soy sauce mixture.
Lightly coat a skillet with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat until hot. Add the shrimp (with the marinade) and cook, turning once, until pink, about 5 minutes. Remove the shrimp from the pan.
Add the canola oil and heat over medium-high heat until hot. Add the remaining 1 garlic clove and the remaining 1 teaspoon ginger and sauté until fragrant. Add the bell peppers, broccoli, carrots and scallions. Sauté until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.
Add the shrimp and the noodles to the skillet and toss to combine. Serve immediately.
