Shrimp with Sesame-Soy Noodles

Try this mock version on the American Chinese takeout favorite lo mein that calls for any cooked Chinese egg noodle or long wheat noodle, including spaghetti. It’s an easy recipe that begs to be repeated. If you want extra kick, simply finish with crushed red pepper or sriracha.
