(1) 8 oz. package lo mein noodles (I found them in the ethnic foods section of our grocery store)
Juice of 1 large lime, about 2 tablespoons
1Tablespoonlight brown sugar
2TablespoonsSriracha hot sauce
2Teaspoonsfresh grated ginger
2tablespoons+ 1 teaspoon sesame oil, divided
1/2tspcrushed red pepper flakes
2large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2poundmedium shrimp, peeled
2cupsfrozen broccoli florets, not thawed
1cupfrozen red bell pepper strips, not thawed
Salt to taste, if needed (the soy sauce has a lot of sodium, so taste before you add any to the finished product)
Bring a large pot of water to boil. Once the water reaches a rolling boil, add in the lo mein noodles and cook for 3-4 minutes, or according to package instructions.
While you wait for the water to boil, prepare your sauce:
In a small bowl combine the lime juice, brown sugar, soy sauce, sriracha, ginger, and 1 teaspoon of the sesame oil; whisk well to combine. Set aside until needed.
Melt the butter in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add in the crushed red pepper flakes, then pour in the beaten eggs. Stir gently and cook for about 3 minutes. Once the egg is done cooking, keep the pan on the burner but transfer eggs to a small plate; set aside.
Add 1 tablespoon of the sesame oil to the pan and increase the heat to medium-high. Add in shrimp and cook for 1 to 2 minutes on each side, or just until firm and pink. Remove shrimp with a slotted spoon and transfer to a clean plate; set aside. Add the broccoli and red pepper strips to the pan, increase heat to high, and add in the remaining sesame oil; stir fry until just charred; about 3-4 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook for one minute, or until fragrant.
Add drained noodles to the skillet along with the cooked egg, shrimp, and prepared sauce. Reduce the heat to medium-low, and stir well, making sure all ingredients are coated with the sauce. Cook for a minute or so, just to ensure all ingredients have been warmed. Serve at once.
I added sesame seeds at the very end for a little crunch, if you'd like to do the same.
