There is something comforting about a bowl of Chow Mein noodles stir-fried with vegetables and succulent, juicy shrimp covered in a sauce that makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside. The slurping of the springy, chewy egg noodles is so enjoyable too. And the array of colorful, vibrant vegetables with their textures and flavors elevates the experience to another level. With their flavorful juices, the juicy shrimp add even more layers of flavor. Then finally, the savory, sweet, and tangy sauce that covers everything brings the entire dish together with its pungent aroma. This Shrimp Chow Mein is the ultimate comfort food.
