Shrimp Chow Mein

  1.     8 oz. steamed chow mein (Chinese noodles)
  2.     1 pound shrimp (shelled and divined)
  3.     3 garlic cloves (finely chopped)
  4.     1/2 cup shredded cabbage
  5.     1/4 cup shredded carrot
  6.     1 tablespoon soy sauce
  7.     1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  8.     1/2 teaspoon sugar
  9.     1/2 teaspoon Chinese dark soy sauce
  10.     2 tablespoons water
  11.     2 tablespoons cooking oil
  12.     2 stalks scallions (cut into 2-inch length)
  13.     Salt to taste


Soak the steamed chow mein in cold water for about 5 minutes. Rinse a few times until the water turns clear and the chow mein is soft. Drain the excess water and set aside. (Don’t over soak the chow mein or the noodles will get lumpy and soggy.) In a small mixing bowl, mix all the seasoning ingredients. Set aside.
Heat up the wok with the cooking oil. Add in the chopped garlic and stir-fry until light brown or aromatic. Add the pork and shrimp and stir fry until they are half done. Add the shredded cabbage and carrot into the wok and do a few quick stirs.  Add the noodles, the seasoning mixture and the water. Continue to stir until the noodles are well blended with the seasonings and completely cooked through. Add the chopped scallions, do a few final stirs, dish out and serve hot.
