Another Recipe from Janice’s Kitchen Corner – Jan’s Lo Mein (Shrimp)!

I have been sharing my recipes with readers for over a year now. Some readers have told me that they love some of them so much that their family asks for them every week. That is quite a compliment. I hope if you haven’t tried any that you will soon.

There are many recipes to peruse below, and others not listed there. Search for recipes and you will get more. I haven’t shared one since February 3, 2023, but have been sharing my finished products on Instagram and promised to put the recipes here.

Here are some of the other recipes Baked Chicken, ChiliShrimp Scampi, ShortcakesPot Roast, Basil Pesto ShrimpSpicy Bean SalsaStuffed Zucchini,  Cole SlawZucchini BreadZucchini ItalianoGrapenut Custard, Spinach Pita PizzaPortuguese Seafood StewMarinated MushroomsStuffed Portobello MushroomsChicken Marsala, and Rice Paper Veggie Shrimp Wraps. In the past I have also shared recipes for Portuguese Bisquits and Drunken Chicken.

Today I want to share my recipe for Lo Mein. I’ve been watching my salt intake lately and do not salt my food much if at all. You may want to add more soy sauce to this recipe than I have listed below in the ingredients.

Lo Mein (small portion because I ate some of it already – so good! Couldn’t help myself! Sorry!)

JAN’S LO MEIN (Shrimp) Serves 2 – 4


  1. 2 tbs olive oil
  2. 1 bunch scallions chopped.
  3. 1 small onion chopped.
  4. bunch fresh or frozen pea pods
  5. 1 lb. shrimp (or you can use leftover meats – pork, chicken, steak, etc.)
  6. bean sprouts and water chestnuts (optional)
  7. 1 pkg Chinese or Japanese noodles or regular noodles
  8. Soy Sauce (Joyce Chen low salt)
  9. Garlic powder (sprinkle)
  10. Teriyaki sauce
  11. Ground ginger to taste (sprinkle)
  12. small pkg. mushrooms chopped (I used button and shitake.) My husband didn’t like the shitake! Sigh! Next time no shitake!


  1. Boil water for noodles before you begin cooking items below. (If you are using Chinese/Japanese noodles they only take three minutes to cook but the water takes longer to boil).
  2. Stir fry scallions, onions in olive oil in wok or fry pan.
  3. Add pea pods and cook a couple minutes more.
  4. Add shrimp, cook until pink.
  5. Add mushrooms (water chestnuts & bean sprouts) heat through until softened.
  6. Add soy sauce and teriyaki sauce to taste (I sprinkle a little of both over mixture).
  7. Sprinkle garlic powder and ginger over above.
  8. Add noodles to water and cook according to directions on pkg. and drain.
  9. Add noodles to above mixture and toss together.
  10. Add more seasoning to your preference (soy sauce and/or teriyaki sauce).
  11. Serve with choice of chicken wings or other meats or by itself – it is filling and delicious.
  12. Enjoy!

When I recently make this, I baked chicken wings with seasonings, but we could have eaten just the Lo Mein. It was filling.

Hope you get to try this recipe soon if you love Chinese food as much as I do. I have made egg rolls, pot stickers, won ton soup, fried rice, and Chinese chicken wings. Some of these things are a lot of work so I may not be sharing them or even making them again. I used to make these when I was very young and not too smart! Haha!

Thank you so much for stopping by to read this post. Come back again soon for more recipes and other interesting posts about whatever pops into my already overcrowded head.

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!
