More About This Recipe

  • When we first arrived in Mexico some 15 years ago there were no Chinese restaurants in our small town. It was an unpleasant experience for us, since we loved eating Chinese at least once a month, sometimes even once a week. Since our craving couldn’t be satisfied, I decided to learn how to make our favorite Asian meals at home, which was much easier than I had imagined. Nowadays, there are various high-quality Chinese restaurants in town. While we can get delivery anytime, I’m still preparing dishes like this shrimp chow mein at home, not only because it’s super easy to tackle homemade, but also because you’d swear by the flavor that it was whipped up in a restaurant. Prepare this chow mein recipe today for your family; they won’t believe you made it yourself!
