  • For the noodles:
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • ½ pound medium shrimp shelled, deveined
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 ” knob of ginger minced
  • 2 medium zucchinis Blade D, noodles trimmed

  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

Instructions

  • Heat the sesame oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add the shrimp, season with salt and pepper, and cook for 2 minutes, flip, and cook another 1-2 minutes or until shrimp is opaque and C-shaped. After the shrimp is done, set it aside on a plate and cover to keep warm. Immediately add garlic and ginger to the pan and stir for 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add the spiralized vegetables, and snow peas, to the same skillet and cook, tossing frequently, until tender, about 7 minutes. When done, add the spinach and toss for 2-3 minutes or until wilted.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the sauce. In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, and pepper. Once vegetables are done cooking, add the shrimp back in and pour over the sauce and toss to coat the vegetables and shrimp in the sauce. Let cook for 30 seconds to warm through.
  • Divide the lo-mein into bowls, garnish with sesame seeds and serve immediately.
